Lordstown’s last Chevy Cruze makes its way through GM plant

Local News

The last Chevrolet Cruze made its way through General Motors Lordstown Complex on Friday.

Sources close to production sent us pictures of the vehicle going through the body shop.

In the images, you can see signs that say “Last Cruze.”

Workers wrote on the body of the car — things like, “I’ve survived despite you” and “The future is uncertain but the end is always near – Jim Morrison” (the late singer of the ’60s rock group, The Doors).

A union leader said most of the cars now are either silver or white, so he thinks the last Cruze will likely be one of those colors.

It will now head to the paint shop and then hit General Assembly.

It’s expected to be finished on Wednesday.

The union leader we talked to didn’t know where the last Cruze would be shipped but said they would like to know.

The GM Lordstown plant will stop production next Friday.

Leaders from Local 1112 are still hopeful about getting another product for the plant.
