Which GM vehicle would you take in a contest?

66 posts in this topic

Let's say you enter a contest where the prize was a brand new 2008 GM vehicle of your choice (no MSRP restrictions). You win and have to make a decision on which brand new 2008 GM vehicle you will claim as your prize. What would it be and why?

Mine is easy... the all-new GMC Sierra Denali in Summit White.

To me, the Sierra Denali is the modern day version of the mid-'50s GMC Suburban Carrier (aka Cameo) pickup. It can be used for work/play, but also for a night out on the town. It's the most luxurious pickup in GMC's stable, and has performance manners to boot. I couldn't afford to own one otherwise, so if I won this fictional contest I'd claim the Sierra Denali as my prize.

Cheater's reply: Caddy XLR-V, then sell it & buy something more normal (like a used car) and half pay for a house with the rest...

Car-to-keep reply: Have they announced a new gen CTS-V yet? 2nd choice, probably Z06.

A 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30.

If we are talking all years, then my screen name is my answer.

That is my automotive Holy Grail.

Okay, I went back in to my original post and made it clear that it has to be a brand new 2008 GM vehicle. :P

And I'm :lol: @ Fly's choice!!!

Kodiak 4500 rollback truck, Duramax Diesel, 6-speed Alison

I could start my classic car shipping company and then when I

made some serious $$$ buy a CTS-V, then once my business

grew substantially I'd get a Peterbilt 379 with a 9-car capacity

trailer and really start cooking.... at that point I'd buy a bunch

of classic cars for myself & an Escalade EXT in pearl white with

the power running boards, and for Julie I'd buy that BMW M5

she's always dreamed of.

Uh, not really.

BMW makes fine cars, so does MB.

I would buy a dozen BMWs or Mwercedes before I'd

ever even rent a Toyopet-Lex_Scion or a hon-DUH.

The Japanese make $h!ty products, have EXTREMLY

poor business ethics and fugly styling. The Germans

are competing for my dollar very effectivelly.

I'm European born & as much as GM is my #1 NEW

choice if I had to buy a new non-GM I'd buy a BMW,

Porsche, Audi or Mercedes before I'd ever think of

buying a FWD domestic or some pepsi-can on wheels

Japanese car.

Julie is a cool chick, I'd love to see a real poll of the

typical wife/girlfriend of a C&Ger... probably a few

Camrys and Accords mixed in with those GMs... <_<

A BMW 5 is much better than the average chick car!

...and Sixty Eight, you'd really buy a BENZ? I've known so many of those cars to have problems...and I'd rather crush and Audi than drive one. I probably hate a lot of European cars as badly as you hate Japanese cars. Maybe we can just agree to hate Korean cars and agree on that.

I am with you on the BMW thing though. Were it to be a non-GM car, my choice would be a New Cooper S coup with a six speed and a sunroof delete. If it were not a Miata.

She drives an '88 S-10 Sport (Blazer). Likes the Charger, Riviera, Monte Carlo, Reatta, AURA, STS, XK8, Sierra, Ram, or F-150. Father has an early-90s F-150, mother a '92 Chevy G20 van.

A good friend of mine, she drives a '97 Jeep Grand Cherokee, would love a newer Jeep, Solstice, SKY, or SL550 (we can dream).

Another friend, she drives a Taurus, wants a Jeep Wrangler or Dodge Ram.

Another friend, he owns an '02 Saturn SL1, wants nothing but a Cadillac DTS, STS, Escalade, or GMC Yukon Denali.

Another friend who some C&Gers met, he owns an '06 9-3 Aero, used to want a G35 or FX, now wants the forthcoming 9-4x, or new VUE.

I surround myself with the best. Checkmate. ;)
