Vipers getting assembled at Chrysler's Conner Avenue Assembly Plant

In a world where countless Toyotas and BMWs are built in the U.S.A. but a seemingly equal number of Fords and Chevys are manufactured in Mexico and Canada, this New York Times interactive feature offers a refreshing focus on the SRT Viper Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit– one of only two car factories within Motown city limits.

Equally unusual is the amount of handwork that goes into assembling the twelve Vipers produced daily, not to mention the fact that, according to the piece, “… with almost no automation in place, the loudest sounds are the roars of a Viper’s engine.”

Sounds like a pretty sweet place for 150 muscle car fanatics to work, in our book.
