    New '08 Malibu Commercials

    I think they are funny. People remember "funny". Everyone know's (including GM) that their old designs were ... blah, and they are making fun of it. If you can't laugh at yourself ...

    2009 Pontiac Vibe GT

    I like it. I'm glad they are bringing the AWD back. Hope the gas mileage is good. I hate to say it, but it's coming to mpg for me.

    99% of the time? That's pretty cool, and very different from what I read in here. But I understand, a little, why we (UAW) get such a bad rap. There are a few "bad apples". But there are those kind of people in every workplace. About the "signing bonus" ... I think it's the wording that is weird. When I hear "signing bonus" I think of pro sports. In this situtation, I think it could be worded differently. Your statement about the union setting up a job training program sounds good though.

    It is nice. But don't be "hate-in". Ok seriously, I haven't seen the paperwork yet, but I'm sure GM made out pretty good. Yeah, all everyone will look at and talk about (complain) is the "signing bonus", and "lump sum payments". But what GM is going to save, $$,$$$,$$$,$$$ - as in billions, will definately help the company. And for that, I and the UAW are very happy!!

    Detroit Press Slams UAW

    Dude, what the heck are you talking about? They want GM & the UAW to setup the pattern of the contracts."retaliation"?? Retaliation for what ... striking another company? It ain't going to happen.

    Woodward Dream Cruise '07

    As usual, the Woodward Dream Cruise was incredible. For all you guys who live out of state, you have to try one year to come out this way. It really is the biggest "Car Party" in the world. Also, did any one get to see the corvette with the (I'm guessing) Nomad front and back end? I got a side shot but not the front. (I'll put the picture I got in here when I get home). It was sharp.

    FRANKFURT: 2008 Chevrolet Aveo5

    I don't think it looks bad, but I would need to see it in person.

    SPY SHOTS! 2010 Saturn AURA

    I think it'll look sharp. Just wish it was built here.

    2008 CTS Pricing Released

    Still too much money. 3 Series / 5 Series ... it's too much.

    Saturn mulling Diesel-propelled future

    Why does a diesel cost $1000 more? Help me out guys.
  14. Griffon, nice post with all the examples. I hate to say it, but they all look fine. They're all so small, it's hard to look at then as "cars", but that's what it's going to come down to. Gas will be $3.00 a gallon this summer and it's only going to go UP. The only thing about these cars is going up against the 18 wheelers. If we're making cars smaller doesn't it make sense to start making the big rigs smaller? I know the arguments are cost of shipping smaller amounts of "widgets" will make the cost of it go up, but just imagine 2 or 3 of those trucks around you in one of these small cars.
