Let's face it: there absolutely must be some information that Wagoner and the Board cannot MUST not share with the media or public. Some of that information may be shared (leaked?) to certain stakeholders. The dealers certainly are one of those stakeholders.

I don't know what dealer arrangements are like in the States, but it can't be easy to sell ice cream in a 50,000 sq ft facility with parking for 500 cars..............

Didn't a bunch of GM dealers get sneak peaks at some of GM's upcoming product? Maybe they're very enthusiastic about what the future cars being developed under Rick's Regime.
