Anyone ever take a tour of the Smyrna Nissan Plant?
I'm passing through there next week on my way to California and trying to get a tour for 10JUN10.

I've been to the Nissan engine museum and the Nissan Global HQ in Yokohama. I want to see the production floor.
I am on the tour for this Thursday at 1300.
According to the rep I spoke with, it is 1.5 hours long.
No cameras or cell phones allowed. I'll take some outside.
So I get in at 9pm. There is some Country music awards, basketball competition and some crap called Bonaroo. There are no rooms for like a 30 mile radius.
I've been driving for over 11 hours and I'm incredibly pissed off.
No rooms at the local National Guard base.
Finally, I find and Air Force base about 40 minutes from the Nissan facility.
More info after the tour tomorrow.
Took the tour. It was like something out of The Terminator, like the Skynet factory with all the robots.
I did see V8 engines there. I thought they were I4's. That plant does not install V8's into any of those cars. When I inquired, they acted like they knew nothing. Said they may be for a new production run.
