Shorty tells of being hired in April 1963 after several rejections for being too tall. He talks about being lost in the plant, working in Body Shop, Trim Shop and finally in Paint. Shorty relates several humorous incidents of day-to-day life in Fisher including his relationships with coworkers, managers and the UAW and describes the day a vendor's car was buried in the coal pile.
