YEP...   We (CORSA) are fortunate to still have a few connections in order 
to get the tour there during the convention.  If you got in, thank your 
lucky stars since it will likely never happen again.

I was 10 minutes late - and not allowed in - after a drive from a Western 
burb of Chicago directly to the plant.  STUFF happens!

Later, JR
