Interesting story. The GNX has always been one of my dream cars.

Holy crap.. That's all I can muster right now. I love reading stories like these; makes you wonder if someone had similar 'bad' luck with a 2010 SS?

Look what is behind the 2010 Camaro in this picture - Bale Chevy here in Little Rock still has thier brand new, never driven 1978 Corvette Pace Car sitting on the floor in the showroom. They have it on rollers so they can move it around. It's been there FOREVER.

I hope the regularly tear that puppy down to check the bearings and such.. or at least drive it enough to prevent the girl from being 'frozen' in time. :/

I hate stuff like this. Somebody take it out for a tire roasting drive!
That's what it needs.

I remember last winter eating lunch at a Taco Bell. Somebody drove a GNX to lunch...................in the snow. I continue to hope it was a "look-a-like", that someone got a set of wheels and the vents and made a GN look like a GNX.

And I always remember at Autoworld in Flint (a shortlived auto industry amusement park. Yes really) had a GNX in a hanging display. I always wondered what happended to that car.

Just in case anyone is intrested. I'd love to see that go to a good family. I thought about it...but its slightly out of my price range.

One of my top 5'ers of all time. Loved those cars.
