You can't keep a 3800 running, I doubt you'll get much use out of a rotary.

#642019 The post rating system

Posted by Satty on 09 December 2010 - 07:16 AM

I don't like it. It's a way for immature cowards to hit and run with no consequence. This is a DISCUSSION forum.

No it isn't. Have you not been paying attention the last couple of years? It's a haven for people to bitch and moan about how not every car is a hardtop, or that every car isn't a coupe, or that every car isn't a Hyundai Sonata Turbo, or that Greenpeace is coming out at night and taking away trucks or some other such nonsense. That's not discussion, its whining.

#735989 Biggest one day stock drop due to auto Fire in Seattle Suburb

Posted by Dodgefan on 02 October 2013 - 10:56 PM

Leaving one to wonder just how easy is it for these electric auto's to catch on fire and possibly kill someone.


That's cute. Because vehicles carrying a payload of highly flammable fluids never catch fire.


Those last two links are especially incredible when you consider that they are related to electrical problems. In a GASOLINE powered vehicle you say? Clearly this is witchcraft and we should go back to horse drawn carriages.

#704621 ATS Results are in and They are Good Very Good!

Consider this... when you have to start picking on stuff like the thickness of the steering wheel rim is "not as good as BMW", when you have one reporter amazed at how thin the A-pillar is and another complaining about how thick it is, when you have to start complaining that it is priced too close to BMW, when you have to start making up reasons why the base engine is so smooth but then complain that the engine isn't smooth enough, when you call one of the least smooth competitor's engines "buttery", when you start complaining that a loaded model can price over the base version of the next car up while forgetting that the EXACT same thing happens at BMW, Audi, and Benz....

well... maybe Cadillac is just hitting too close to home for the BMW humping journalists.....

#663235 Some bad news on the El Camino

Posted by SAmadei on 17 May 2011 - 11:47 PM

At a time when the new Colorado is coming out, where is the need for an El Camino? Seriously, there is a reason GM ditched the El Camino and Caballero in 1987: most likely that the compact pickups were (and are) simply more profitable. :smilewide:

The compact pickups have sold more, but have had serious profitability issues. The number 1 reason the El Camino and Caballero disappeared after 1988 was because of the G-body demise. There was no easy platform for it to move to... but now EVERY El Camino fan knows (due to the internet) that GM builds Utes galore in Australia.

In any case, why can't you have both? I don't think anyone is suggesting that the El Camino replace the Colorado. The Ute is already being built... and can be federalized easily as a Chevy... bring it back and kick some ass. GM could have done this for over a decade, but has instead screwed around with stuff like the SSR... then does a bait and switch on the G8ST. GM is psychotic. Just like anything else, GM is waiting until the 11th hour to put out the best (GNX, Fiero, Typhoon, Syclone, Impala SS, GTO, G8)... what is GM waiting to bring the Ute over for? The outlawing of V8s?

GM has some of the best RWD cars being made and will not bring them to the good people of the US.
