General Motors Corp.’s St. Therese, Que., Canada, plant closed its doors for good Aug. 29 after 37 years in operation and 4 million units produced. The plant opened in 1965 with production of the ’66 Chevrolet Biscayne. Most recently it produced GM’s muscle cars, the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird, which are ending production due to falling demand. St. Therese was running well below its 250,000-unit annual capacity, producing only 40,000 cars per year.
