I wonder if they will be real cars, or pictures of future vehicles.

Most likely they will be clays or clown suited clays. Probably full scale but there could be the actual concepts that will show up at the shows, one offs.

I'm curious about this Vegas show.

          1.  Any other cars there?

          2.  Any news on the Velite?

          3.  Any name for the Centieme/Rendezvous replacement?

La Crosse Super was there - launches in 2007. Velite grill and headlamp treatment, larger engine and larger wheels. The whole profile of the car changes with the new front end treatment

Lambda Crossover was shown - likely to be launched as Centieme. Gorgeous vehicle. Interior on par or superior to Lexus RX330. Looks like concept of same name from 2003 only with a more angular Velite style grill. Appears larger than the concept. Seats 8. Better looking than the GMC Lambda shown - the Acadia.

Any ideas on engines for the new Buick SUV? Will it get DOD? Will it have better gas mileage than the Vous?

To those who have seen the 2007 LaCrosse Super: Is it worth waiting for, or should I consider an '06? Also, will it be shown in Detroit in Jan?

4.7 Ultra V8, maybe SOHC maybe DOHC It isn't really clear (note GM did use DOD on the OHC XV12 a few years ago chop it down and it comes to about 4.7L, and the 3.6 DOHC.

is it known if the UV8 will get DOD?

AH-HA had said previously that there was no mention of DOD during the press preview.
