I kinda like them too, it's a neat exercise in design if nothing else.

Sure wouldn't hurt GM to produce 1 or 2, or maybe even all 3 of them.

Here's my idea for all 3 in production:
Chevrolet Groove
GMC Trax
Pontiac Beat (replace the Vibe)

With the Saturn Corsa coming, that'd be a nice lineup of small cars!

Exactly, these cars would sell far better than the ugly Scions, and probably steal alot of their sales.

Scions are unfortunately popular because they are cheap. The Tc is also not a bad looking car when compared to the horribly ugly Xa and Xb models. Again the car is cheap and has "upgrades" although playing mostly to the ricer crowd. Tc is not an economy car when you tack on the price for the options.

I hope to never be in the market for one of the types of cars but with gas once again reaching insane pricing you would never know. ( I'd buy a Motorcycle before I got that desperate.)

Scions definitely appeal to the young crowd and they're marketed well.
But their build quality is not good at all, and that's where GM could out-shine them.
