Ford's Romeo Engine Plant in Romeo, Mich. has reached an incredible milestone: it's produced its 10 millionth engine since the first motor was built at the facility in 1990.
Romeo builds two-valve and three-valve 4.6-liter V-8 engines for the Ford F-150 plus the Mustang, Econoline, Explorer, Crown Victoria or Grand Marquis models at an incredible rate of 140 finished mills an hour or 2.33 a minute.
The Romeo plant was originally used to build tractors before it was converted to engine production.
