I have another 1LE in red, but this one comes with a trivia question. Note the upper left square on the lower grille. Can anyone tell me what that is, AND why it is there? Good luck!

Decisions decisions

So, I just happened to drive by my local dealership today, and I decided to stop and take an up close and personal look at the 13's, and I have to say that I'm kind of even on the front end of the 13's vs the 14's, but the back end of the 13 appeals to me a lot more. I think on the 14 what I like less (not dislike) after much pondering is the license plate box. Plus, I like the chrome bezels around the tail lights on the 13. So... do I tell my husband I don't care if he wants me to do it or not and eat the upside down on my current car, or do I keep the peace and wait another year? No, I'm not asking any of you to really answer that. I've wanted one for 37 years. Waiting another year just seems like forever!

Anyone know the drop dead date to order a 13?

Correct that is the slot for a tow hook. Aside from the obvious there is a specific reason for it being there. Anyone no the significance of why it's there?

Is whatever that is the whole reason for that solid strip. I thought the biggest reason for the front end change was to give it a bigger lower grill, ala ZL1. Why block 1/4 of the mouth with a mustache?

Eh Its alright. I'm glad I have what I have and I look forward to seeing the next way of owners purchasing their cars and showing them off to us. But I will never sell my car for anything and am glad I got it when I did.

Pulling you out of ditches after you get stuck drifting a car that is way to pretty to be drifting.

A lot of road tracks require a tow hook to run, so it will be easy to pull your car out of tricky places

and the answer is-

GM put it on there because it is mandatory in Europe to have a tow hook on the SS.

Also below the "mustache" the first open slot of the 3 has a solid bar covering most of behind it as well.
