Who knows, maybe someone will read these Buick rumors and there will be another RWD Buick in the world.

And I just assume every Buick post starts with Fenwick somehow, somewhere. But Buick enthusiasm is a good thing. So I will at least try to warm the bucket of water a bit.
psh, more smoke and mirrors

wellnow..........let me see.........


*gets out recipe box*


*gets out cookbook*


*gets out "mom" Settlemire's recipes*




What SHALL we serve your words with............????


Hmmmmm


Perhaps a marinara sauce?



...........mebbe pesto? (one of my favorites)




........or perhaps toss them very simply with a bit of salt, pepper, and a smidge of butter.........





........and would you like fries with that?





By the way - why do you say we disappoint people?

By any stretch, the new Camaro's doing great. (and no, we're not resting on our laurels....)

The Corvette ZR1

The CTS-V

The LaCrosse

The Cruze

The Verano

The Regal GS

The Volt

The Equinox (STILL can't build enough of 'em)

.....Tidbit: Chevrolet outsold Toyota in January by over 25,000 units.......and Ford by over 4,000.

That is not meant to be arrogant - but we really ARE trying - and we really are on a roll - and America is starting to realize that we offer some of the world's best vehicles....

Chevrolet is also the fastest growing automobile brand in the world..........

.........not sure why you feel we disappoint people...........

WHICH IS IT????!!!! GAAAAAaaack!!!

A lie is only telling something that you know not to be true. If you believe it to be true but it turns out to be incorrect, that does not constitute a lie by the definition of lie. On the other hand not telling something when you do know something by some is considered a lie of omission. In which case anyone who knows anything but isn't saying is by that definition, lying. However, if you don't know anything and aren't saying anything then you are by default being truthful by not telling a lie or a truth as you would know neither. So in this case it would be hard to tell whether there was a lie or not. Now on the other hand there is smaller classifcation of lie known as a fib. A fib may generally be considered to be ok in some circles, but in others it merely falls into the category of lacking truth and, hence, simply a lie. But I digress.

I find that in most cases, it isn't GM that gets everyone hyped up. It's ourselves. And when we expect a certain thing based on 38 threads on it, the we are disapointed. But I'm not sure GM does that to us as much as we do it to ourselves.

Oh Lord help me ascertain the aspects, scrutinize the subject and come to a clear and concise conclusion upon which to make a sound and rational judgement.

Waiting for the HP, Z, whatever it's going to be called..

feels like waiting to find out who shot Mr. Burns --
feels like waiting to find out who Cartman's father was --
feels like waiting for Fry and Leela to actually get together --
feels like waiting for Mass Effect 3
feels like waiting for Half-Life 2 Episode 3

it's keeping people glued to the TV, the rags, the interwebz, etc..

Just like being made to watch 58 minutes of an hour news show, to see that big announcement during the last 2 minutes..

Well the article does say "unviel a vehicle based off the chevrolet camaro platform". So it really dont mean its a Camaro/Z28/HP Edition that will be unveiled but also doesnt mean, it wont be the Z28/HP Edition...

It also mentions that "GM planned to unveil at least one other new vehicle at the show". So could it be, the new 4dr V8 sedan from Chevy that replaces the G8???

Taken off MotorTrend website....


Quote:
With rear drive and a punchy V-8 under the hood, the Pontiac G8 was the first real sport sedan for Pontiac in decades, and we mourned its demise when GM killed off the Excitement Division as part of its post-bankruptcy rationalization. But it appears the G8 will make a comeback -- only this time wearing Chevy badges. Three GM sources have confirmed to Motor Trend the Australian-built sedan will re-appear on the U.S. market as a Chevy in the coming year. And it won't be called Impala. "We have a good name for it," smiled one of the sources.

My prayers have been answered, we have something new and fresh to talk and wildly speculate about about. And we will get the answer in print, covered by the media,with tons of pictures, and in a few days to boot!!!! Be happy peeps,...it may or may not not be the HP granted, it may be a 6th generation Camaro prototype for all we know, but what we do know is that it will be a camaro based platform and it's something new....., the Chevy God's are smilling on us! We are not worthy(LOL).Oh BTW Fbodfather has always given us info albeit in between the lines but if you are perceptive enough you don't need it to be completely spelled out, do you? It wouldn't be as much fun that way...thanks Scott for your posts, I for one appreciate it.

Number 3,

In all due respect,

....Seeing the concept Camaro and the Transformers movie over, and over, and over, and over again waiting for the REAL thing was the ultimate car tease ever in the history of....well ever in the history of anything! As the "F" and "C" companies were putting out some cases two retro based models, us Chevy fans could only drool in anticipation. Again in all due respect, I would classify that as "disappointment"

....and while those same other companies put out Convertibles, "HEMI", BOSS 302's and "500" additions and key activated track modes; again us Camaro fans could still do nothing but drool… and again in all due respect, I would classify that as "disappointment" as well...

....having to see a cobalt Blue, Sublime Lime or Plumb Crazy rides out there with no Hugger Orange w/hounds tooth Camaros would also qualify as "disappointment".

Now please do not take this as negative, as I still love GM vehicles over all other brands....but, I must admit GM has disappointed us loyal customers.

So if GM does not want to Disappoint us customers tell us what's happening and what is planed, heck it makes no difference to the "F" and "C" companies they have all shown their cards.

Just saying;

Just saying;
Hounds tooth is ugly IMO

And when was the last time you saw hugger orange?
Have you ever tried to imagine it in a new car?
It would look horrendous.
I think Inferno orange is a great option and looks better than hugger orange would look on ANY new model car.
