For instance............One line worker after being denied an advancement at a GM plant up in Michigan decided that it would be kind of funny to piss in the spray on sound deadner container and ruin 3400 lbs of the material, this was only found out after a number of vehicles were brought back with severe mold problems on the surface of the deadner. The material being spoken of was organic based and very temperamental unless kept in its mega container away from the oxygen and stored under a given set temperature.

Some of the most deliberate acts of sabotage were when KNOWN defective transmissions were being installed into the Chrysler Town & Country minivans and then marking them as ok. I mean I can go on and on of the stories from inside the plants by upset or lazy line workers......... Urinating inside of gas tanks............pouring sand into the fuel filling nozzle...........kinking fuel lines........not even bothering to align doors and trim.............installing improper fuses in incorrect locations....I mean seriously I can go on and on all day but I think y'all get my point.

The hospital where I work just moved into a brand new building. They've been having problems with the sewer lines. When the ran the fiber optics down there, they found wads of duct tape and big clogs of grout mix that, apparently, disgruntled workers put there. Sucks because this kind of thing usually just screws the end user.

..I for one wasn't brought up in the automotive industry...I became an enthusiast when I bought my 05 Ram hemi...I read the threads on different forums and saw what works and saw what were shots in the dark..I didn't try to reinvent the wheel and followed those who already did the r & d an legwork. Now, I've done over 25 cam/head installs for others as well as other types of installs and done some tuning (at the time with psc1)and have one of the quickest na stockblock qc's around (based on 1/8th an 1/4 miles)... whenever I give an opinion I base it from my experiences with certain items, track times and dynos... i too laugh at some opinions bein spouted sometimes and i know its relative, fast to some will not be considered fast to others.... and I like coming here cuz i feel my knowledge and experience will not be taken for granted...

Some are just downright nasty in that they showcase what happens to society itself on a larger scale when people are left to their own devices, it boils down to a bunch of arguing and bickering, kinda like some things on tv, just not worth my time. This place however, is just a great group of down to earth real people centered around one really cool common thread, pun intended, we all love our RAM trucks!!!

Yup, it's all good, girl. Your funny posts keep me laughing. I gotta make sure I'm not drinking anything when I read your posts otherwise I end up spewing all over my monitor!

I know all about stuff like that. I worked for GM for many years. Toured factories in Ontario where they built the W-Body and F-Body platform. Stories of such were already rampant back when GM locked out their employees when they were battling the CAW.

Overall this is a great forum and I really wish there were more "Z" sites around. One of computers, one for roofing contractors and so on. One thing I must mention about this site is there are some members here with some absolutely fantastic looking trucks. Damn!

I spent many years working for a Japanese company in service and warranty and assisted in "Warehouse mod's", it was great to work with Factory staff and see how dedicated they were to doing a good job
these guys are different, they would apologize for a problem and fix things that were minor issues
The culture would never consider sbotage
I can count on one hand the assembly problems in 10 years, very rare.
Some production was moved the the states and there was a big change in production quality, not sabotage but just poor quality
