Power and Associates named the Cruz among the top two cars in its class. They named the Lordstown plant among the six top plants in the Americas. The federal government rescued the auto industry. Eight years ago I stood and actually drove one of the cars with Governor Strictland and others, one of the first cars off the line, one of the first Chevy Cruzes coming out of the plant. Two years ago I stood in Lordstown for the plant's 50th anniversary. G.M. estimated more than 10,000 people, young and old, families with children, workers who had been there close to - a few had been there almost the entire 50 years."
