The final car off the production line in Adelaide’s GMH factory at Elizabeth was witnessed by many workers; one described it as surreal – no other car followed close behind on the conveyer line. Numerous lives have been disrupted by its dissolution. It represented the end of car manufacturing not only in SA but in Australia.
‘Generations of Manufacturing Halted (Hot Red)’ was my honour to these workers. Although it is a halt of manufacturing I hope the future is bright ahead.
…That LAST car on the production line when it grinded to a halt was coloured ‘Hot Red’.
