GM CEO is going to drive a Camaro to D.C.

Well not really, but. Ford's CEO just announced he is going to be driving a Ford F-150 or a Focus from Detriot to D.C. when talks resume about the Government Aid the big three are looking for.

How kick @ss would it be if Rick Wagoner drove a new Camaro 2SS to D.C.?

congress would say that gm is out of touch for building that type of car in this economic climate. and if its an ss they will say detroit still does not get it building 8 cylinder sport coupes. you cannot win with these people.

I'd expect the Tahoe Hybrid because it is among the most fuel efficient and it shows that GM can still build what it builds best with new fuel technology.

maybe mulalaly could fly a rocket ship, that would cost 1 billion dollars for the flight and then GM would look better then ford for not being rediculous. so gm could get some money and ford wouldn't

An SS Camaro would be one of the worst things he could drive there. Politiians would eat him up saying he out of tune with the Amercan people.

Mullally driving an F-150 is just as bad a perception as Wagoner driving an SS Camaro would be.

I agree all three CEOs should drive their most economical vehicle either in production or ready to be produced. If I were Rick, I'd snatch the keys from the engineers working on the Volt and drive it to Capitol Hill. If it breaks down because it's not ready to go, there's always GM's 24 hour road side assistance

If Wagoner, Mullaly, Nardelli, and Gettelfinger carpool in an Aveo, the slapstick comedy blockbuster would write itself. They could solve all their financial problems selling the rights to that film.

The Tahoe Hybrid gets 21mpg City / 22mpg Hwy. How does that qualify it as being among the most fuel efficient? The Aveo and Cobalt are among GM's best fuel efficient cars (~26 city / 34 hwy). I'm not sure pulling up in an SUV would send a message of "change" to Congress.

LOL! But seriously, I think Tahoe or Escalade (but probably not cause of the price) Hybrid would be sweet.

Yeah....that's where Mulally went when he left Boeing. Well, maybe he could borrow an F-15 or YF-22 and make an entrance almost as dramatic as a rocket shit...err...I mean ship.

Wagoner should take a Volt prototype to DC. Mullay? Fusion Hybrid. Nardelli? Aspen or Durango hybrid.



As for the Tahoe (and other two-modes), relative to other full sized SUV's, they get amazing fuel economy. Better city mileage than just about every midsized sedan. And the fuel savings over the non-hybrid versions is significantly more than any other hybrid on the market.

Lutz has his own jet. Then again, its foreign made . . .

I think they should all shave their heads, wrap themselves up in a long white cloth, put in some sandals and a walking stick and walk it there!

Thats whats needed to shut congress up, but im sure they would find something to bitch about even then!
