...I hate the test driver's job.

Nicely done GM.

Boo on NatGeo for following it up with an Acura commercial. Though if they were sponsoring it, that's poetic justice..

My dad did that for a few weeks at Norwood.

Said it was the best job he ever had at that plant.

They said the red car we were "following" was a v6 but that was kinda a 2SS. It was a SS all along.

I was a little disappointed that they didn't talk about the SS more, especially about the engine build. Still a great show though

Well when you see "SS" on the back at the end and count 4 ports on one side of the manifold. Of course we're the only ones that would care heh.

I always wondered what tricks they had to wiring the thing. Turns out there really isn't any trick heh. Just string the mess in by hand.

Did you notice it includes the HVAC module?

Saw a few interesting things though. All the wiring is under the carpet going both left and right to the rear. Battery + is on the drivers side as well.

It was a good show but you should have heard me talking throughout the entire show....

"Make sure you tighten the spoiler down....."

"The entire Paint Checking despt should be fired....."

"The chick checking for leaks closing the door by the window....WTF??"

And I couldnt believe that they painted a red Camaro and then right behind it they were painting a yellow one...Cool as hell that neither paint touches the other one.

Unions suck. Car would be $10,000 cheaper without them.
