On Thursday, the body shell for the last Chevrolet Impala inched through the assembly line toward final production. As it did, several employees gathered around the car, snapping pictures as workers added the hood and it moved closer toward the annals of history.
The car is expected to roll off the line by Feb. 28. GM will then shut down the conveyor belt and sliding skillet and the manufacturing of internal combustion engines at Detroit-Hamtramck will be over.
