This is gonna be a sad day, the first time I see a Camaro going through crash tests....

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

Well, the Chinese want to import their tin-can cars here, but they couldn't pass the crash tests. I guess they really won't pass now. Gee, what a shame...

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

Awwww...yeah that's really a shame.... That means less competition for GM. Then again, the government will find some reason to let those Anchovy cans into this country.
