    OK history buffs -- labor strike in \'76-77?

    OK guys, dig out your memory banks. I'm trying to sort out some production figures for the Blazer Chalet, made in model years 1976-1977. In order to do this I'm developing a timeline, and one of the magazine articles I have talks about "labor strikes", but doesn't specify if this was at Chevy, auto-industry-wide, or even related to Detroit at all (might have been the trucking industry not delivering cars).

    Can anybody remember that far back? I was, while not in diapers, a little young to be caring about gearhead stuff yet!
