If GM produces a vehicle, it has to pass all the standard internal tests and requirements...doesn't matter if it's an Aveo (err...Sonic) or a ZR1.




...And I care a LOT how it'll do in the snow.

Atlas t-case?... Not that mine would ever see the snow, let alone the rain, but it certainly gives me confidence all the systems get this sort of testing. I just have to figure some SRA and SFA swaps

Who says they are not driving around up in the mountains where snow is blowing therefore it sticks to the car then they come down towards the ground and you get this picture.

It wouldn't make sense to spend millions to advertise a car that nobody could buy for another 6-9 months after the ad appears

Then do it with the Corvette. Same message, same effect, but people could actually go out and buy one.

Not the same, the Camaro has a much meaner look(actually a re-design) and will appeal to a larger crowd. The Corvette with the same body for the last .... years, that would be a waste of air time.

No doubt, to get Chevy in people's head... The Z28 should conquer Super Bowl Sunday.
