Assembly Plant Tour

Flexible Manufacturing at Michigan Assembly Plant

Watching a car roll down an assembly line is an amazing sight, and taking your dad on an assembly plant tour is a sure fire way to make him smile – not to mention you get to spend some quality father-child bonding time together. There are all kinds of plants in North America, and quite a few of them offer tours. For example, you can tour Ford’s Rouge River facility in Michigan, complete with a theater experience and an impressive museum.

If Ford isn’t your brand of choice, you can always take a tour of Chevrolet’s Bowling Green, Kentucky facility where the Corvette is built.

Ticket prices vary, but you’re probably looking at between $15 and $30 for most tours.

    What about the chance to slap Jeremy Clarkson in his smug British face? I hear that guy will do anything for money.

    I would give my dad one of those singing mounted plastic fish robots. Just cause I know it would annoy him.

    Why didn’t cold beer get an honorable mention here? Bud Lite feels left out…

    I got my dad the plunger last year, actually. And it didn’t go over well because he thought it was funny to put it over top of the stick in my mom’s Miata. She got really upset that he switched the gear lever for something so big. The fight was pretty ugly…

    driving schools are a great idea if you can afford it. I did Skip Barber a year ago. What an experience! Worth every penny.

    That guy looks like a worried Mike Ditka, which means this story is bull crap because Ditka never gets worried. He gets shit done.
