  2. How I would deploy Zeta in light of CAFE

    Of course theyre not but I think you may have missed the point. Wheels this big are already in motion but if you get a proposal by all means take it as far as you can. Variety is the spice of life or something like that. Just be mindful of crossing over into Buickman territory.
  3. How I would deploy Zeta in light of CAFE

    Wow. This is like one of those "If I were president for a day" things. So, how much does it cost to retool these plants? What do you suggest we do in the meantime?

  11. Link: Fake Craigs List Ad-- "Men hungry for sex besieged a Brooklyn woman with phone calls after spotting a bogus ad on Craigslist that said she was looking to turn tricks to pay off Christmas debt The callers were responding to the racy ad, which read: "I'm a real hottie looking to earn extra cash to pay off Christmas debt." The data entry specialist had to change her phone number. "I don't want to constantly look over my shoulder," she said. O'Malley said she was further peeved when Craigslist would not help her locate the pervert." -- Theres lots of dirty stuff on the internet but I think this ranks right up there.

    QUOTE(Chris_Doane @ Jan 3 2008, 03:49 PM) For all the "trouble" this thread caused....it's now looking like it's coming true. May 25 2006, 12:07 PM Jan 3, 2008--Cadillac spokesman Kevin Smith said, "We've really seen the V-6 become the predominant engine in sales on the (2008) STS because it's so close in power to the V-8." Or the millions of jackasses buying cars and trucks they dont need so they can go to the store for a pack of butts and a soda. or pop or watever the hell you want to call it. Better than any words I can express I think this sums up the future of the V8. Future Plans for the V8 as it stands today--Click

  15. GM Reports 323,453 December Deliveries; 3.87 Million Vehicles Sold in 2007 Dec. 2007 Sales Chart December Retail Sales up 1.5 Percent; Retail Car Deliveries Up 15 Percent Combined Retail Share For The Past Five Months Up Year-Over-Year Chevrolet Malibu Retail Sales Up 99 Percent; Cadillac CTS Up 51 Percent In December Enclave, OUTLOOK and Acadia Crossovers Exceed 14,000 Retail Sales In December; GM's Mid-Utility Crossover Segment Up 275 Percent Dealer Inventories Down 147,000 Vehicles Year-Over-Year DETROIT - GM dealers in the United States delivered 323,453 vehicles in December, down 5 percent compared with a year ago. With 257,469 retail vehicle deliveries, retail sales for the month were up 1.5 percent. GM delivered 3.87 million vehicles in 2007, down 6 percent compared with 2006. GM's retail market share is anticipated to be flat for the year, with daily rental share down significantly, as planned. "We've executed our Go-to-Market strategy throughout the year, and the results show stabilized retail share and net price, reduced daily rentals, improved residual values, smaller inventories and outstanding launch vehicle performance," said Mark LaNeve, GM North America vice president, Vehicle Sales, Service and Marketing. "Growing our share in key car segments is integral to our strategy. The retail performance of the new Chevrolet Malibu and Cadillac CTS, Saturn AURA, Pontiac G6 and the fuel-efficient Chevrolet Aveo, Cobalt and Pontiac G5, demonstrates the enthusiasm customers have for these outstanding vehicles." December Performance Highlights: Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, GMC and Saturn divisions saw retail increases year-over-year GM's retail car deliveries increased 15 percent based on the strength of the all-new Chevrolet Malibu, 2008 Cadillac CTS and fuel-efficient Chevrolet Aveo, Cobalt, Pontiac G5 and G6. Aveo sales were up 82 percent Chevrolet Impala and Malibu combined were 24,000 retail sales, the best Chevrolet mid-car month since July 2006 Enclave, OUTLOOK and Acadia crossovers exceeded 14,000 retail sales; GM's mid-utility crossover segment was up 275 percent. Enclave had a record month. Chevrolet Silverado, Avalanche and GMC Sierra full-size pickups built retail market share with more than 69,000 vehicles sold Retail vehicles, as a percent of total deliveries, increased more than 5 percentage points to 80 percent Dealer inventories were down 147,000 vehicles year-over-year "The Malibu, CTS and Enclave have some of the fastest turn rates in the industry and we've seen Malibu retail sales increase nearly 100 percent compared with a year ago," LaNeve added. "I was particularly encouraged to see that even though we doubled Malibu sales and basically sold them as soon as they hit dealer lots, the Impala also had a terrific month. More and more customers are realizing that the best mid-car values are no longer at an import dealership." 2007 Performance Highlights: Dealer inventories were at their lowest level going into January in 13 years GMC and Saturn divisions had total and retail increases for the year Enclave, OUTLOOK and Acadia crossovers exceeded 122,000 retail sales; GM's mid-utility crossover segment was up 333 percent retail Daily rental sales were reduced 108,000 vehicles; GM was at its lowest level of daily rental sales in 9 years (about 596,000 vehicles), while significantly boosting content and resale value. Commercial/government fleet sales were up about 5,000 vehicles Anticipated retail share stabilized at about 21 percent Retail vehicles, as a percentage of total deliveries, increased 1 percentage point to 74 percent "The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid and Malibu, Buick Enclave and Cadillac CTS have been named finalists in the North America Car and Truck of the Year Awards, so our vehicles are being recognized as world-class," LaNeve said. "While we've seen a challenging market in 2007, we are offering shoppers the best products and value available. A shining example is Saturn's roughly 12-percent retail increase in 2007, being driven by the AURA, SKY, VUE and OUTLOOK. We believe the industry will be much more resilient than many forecasts and look forward to 2008."
