  1. On a side note, I wrecked a Chevy Cruze rental last week on a weekend get a way, $7000.00 damage and the damn airbag never went off, although that may be a blessing in disguise, with all the airbag issues going on today. The Cruze folded up like an accordion, but hey I'm still alive and that's the important thing right? That and the fact I didn't wreck my Porsche company car ...
  2. Hmmmm, what does Cadillac of today mean to me? Well to be honest (NOTHING), the names of their vehicles stand for or mean nothing ... Bring back the legacy names !!! Remember when Pontiac brought you the first ever G8? Where's Pontiac now ???

    I made this for my father-in-law who lives in the USA, can I cook or can I cook ??? I have automotive talent on loan from God ... Have you folks missed me or what ??? ;-)
  6. BMW is not up at night worried about Cadillac's ATS-V ... Trust me when I say this ... Cadillac may even sell one or two in Europe too, this time ...
  7. BMW has more cash than it knows what to do with, besides unlike Australians, German voters are pretty nationalistic when it comes to purchasing vehicles, they have a German first mindset, too bad Americans don't think that way ...
  8. We are sentimental but no Australian brand is going to survive simply because it is Australian. No Aussie brands are more ingrained in the national consciousness than Qantas or Holden but the flying kangaroo is facing extinction as a long-haul, full-service carrier within 10 years and GM Holden may not even last that long. You don't have to look far to see why. This week, I'm flying to London and needed a one-way fare. Checking the Qantas website was once my benchmark and my habit but I was reminded again why it ceased to be so. Advertisement: Story continues below <iframe id="dcAd-1-3"
  9. The coronation went exactly according to Ford’s script. At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit 2,400 reporters hushed as video screens the size of tractor trailers flooded their vision. A booming voice shook Joe Louis Arena: Two household names, Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, dominated the midsize car business last decade. “Then,” said the voice, “something changed.” Their sales and market share ran flat in 2008. When the recession hit, they plummeted. “What you might not realize is that Camry and Accord never recovered.” Camry sales fell 31% ­between 2007 and 2010. The Accor
  10. would it really be all that different than losing pontiac or olds...? i know it's a brand with big history and possibly a huge future, but those that work there could still work for GM, and the IP that they hold won't go anywhere. even if the brand disolved, aussies could still have a design place down there if GM thought it needed one....and could afford it. No news here as we already knew the RWD is not going away all together. We knew Holden, Chevy and Cadillac are active here in a RWD sedans and we also know Buick has been active in China with Holden based products and could bring i
  11. By RON HAMMERTON GM HOLDEN designers have added at least one Buick model to the line-up of vehicles being crafted at their Port Melbourne studios, alongside those for Chevrolet and Holden. Existence of the confidential Buick design project was revealed to GoAuto at last week’s Detroit motor show by General Motors vice president of global design Ed Welburn, who was typically effusive in his praise of his Australian design team. While Mr Welburn declined to elaborate on the model or nature of the project, he said “some very interesting assignments” were in progress at Holden Design. “They ar
  12. The loss of car manufacturer Holden would be devastating for South Australia, the state government says. Manufacturing Minister Tom Koutsantonis said if the car maker shut up shop it could result in the loss of 8000 jobs across the automotive sector. He said that would have both an economic and social impact. "When you couple those together it would be devastating for the state," he told reporters on Friday. "Could you imagine South Australia tomorrow with 8000 (extra) families without an income." The minister's comments appeared designed to up the ante on the state and federal oppositions,
  13. The sun has unleashed a blast in Earth's direction, and that should cause brighter-than-normal auroral displays this weekend. Skywatchers won't be the only ones monitoring the storm: The folks in charge of power grids and orbiting satellites will also be on guard to make sure the disturbance in the (geomagnetic) force won't be disruptive. Word of today's blast, technically known as a coronal mass ejection or CME, comes via SpaceWeather.com's Tony Phillips. NASA says the outburst sparked an M3.2-class solar flare, as well as a stream of electrically charged particles that is due to interact wi
  14. BMW is not going anywhere, just remember who asked for the alliance, it wasn't BMW, but someone at BMW made BMW see the advantage of making this work ... BMW has enough cash on hand to buy GM, lock, stock and barrel ...
