GM tells foreign car owners to take a hike

Recommended Posts

If you park at General Motors’ Town of Tonawanda engine plant in something other than a GM, Ford or Chrysler vehicle, you will have a longer walk to the main entrance.

The GM plant’s leadership, at the suggestion of United Auto Workers Local 774, agreed to implement the parking restrictions in August. The rules have been enforced more vigorously lately, said Nina Price, a spokeswoman for the plant.

Orange signs on the property notify drivers of the rules. Vehicles that don’t meet the criteria are directed to a designated area farther from the front door.

The policy applies to vehicles driven by visitors and employees alike. Drivers are warned if their vehicles are found improperly parked, they will be towed at their expense.

GM does not have a companywide parking policy for its plants. The GM Components Holdings plant in Lockport, which GM recently reacquired from Delphi, does not have such restrictions, said Kimberly Carpenter, a spokeswoman for the site.

That's been going on for 25 years. Not just at Tonawanda.

Some guys are bumbed when they check the VIN on their Chevy truck, and find out it was made in Mexico.
