The process used to design, develop and fabricate the GDT Speedster officially began on 6 February
2000 when the team held its first meeting. The first few meetings were held on Sunday afternoons at
our workshop in Plymouth, Michigan. Due to schedules it was more convenient for the majority of the
team members to meet near their regular work offices so the meetings were held at a restaurant in
Allen Park or Dearborn, Michigan during lunch hours. Meetings were held approximately every two
weeks for the next three years of the project. After the major components of the vehicle were
assembled the meetings returned to our workshop.
