I was at a car show last Saturday, and the RP Ody they had there was marked "Final Assembly Point: (blah blah), Alabama." I haven't heard anything about the new plant so I'm kind of confused/wondering too...
You'd think there would be a press release stating something on the order of 'first 2002 Odyssey rolls off the line at Alabama plant', wouldn't you?
I mean, Lincoln city officials would certainly want everyone to know that production had officially begun. FWIW, the City of Lincoln web site indicates Winter 2001 for the start of production and Spring 2003 for full capacity (120k vehicles, 120k engines).
