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.

With a cost of around 2.5 million dollars for 30 seconds during the Super Bowl, I can guarantee that GM will not spend it on the Z28. They have a lot more time and money spent on global cars and any ads will go towards re-cooping those costs first. GM knows that they will get a ton of free advertising by just posting a picture on the internet, they will not have to worry about promoting the Z28, it will sell itself. Official debuts will most likely not occur before next summer when T3 breaks into the movie market.

I agree with everything....except the last bit. I believe the Z will be a full 2012 MY vehicle (just a feeling)...which means they'll have to talk/reveal/etc it before April when ordering begins.

Clouded your thoughts are... missing the big picture young patowans.

The Z28 will sell itself but the Z28 in the big ad will definitely be a HUGE positive force for GM. They can put a lil of the volt, corvette, cruze, etc. and finish it with a good 5 seconds of Z28 Mayhemmm !!

You won't remember what beer you were drinking....

GM has accomplished a masterful job of coaxing an entire generation back to the Camaro. There are kids in jr. high and high schools around the world dreaming of owning a Camaro. I cannot even take my Camaro near the local high school because of the reaction...............Have no fear the Z28 will do the job!
