I think they need to use someoen to proofread the stuff before posting... sometimes spellcheck just isn't enough to catch errors..."rolling off off"

Son, You better go ahead and order you an SS, looks like you may have a long wait ofr either the Z or a Vert...

HUH... I thought GM's official stance on the Z/28 was still "there are no plans right now" When'd did that change for them to even think it wasnt already not being worked on...

like how i confused the hell out of everyone on that

Meh... getting/keeping GM healthy is what's important now. I can wait a few years.

3/20:Z/28 Facing Cancellation, Convertible Delayed

Doesn't sound good.

Supplier issue with the convertible top. Z/28 development to cost $50M.

The Z28, if it exists, probably would not require so much investment. It isn't a completely new car. It would be a different trim of a car that has already been developed. I can't imagine it would cost that much. Now, the convertible issue makes sense. With a market like this one, I'm not surprised to see that some suppliers won't survive. There needs to be some market consolidation on the supplier side.

I'm not that surprised about the cancelling the Z28.

But delays/Cancelling the convertibile is sad. I know a lot of people are going to be upset if this is indeed true and verified!!

:(

Maybe Senator Dodd can write in loophole in the stimulus for z-28 funding, it does seem far more important than getting AIG bonuses and look what he got them.

LOL! What a messed up country we live in! I'm grateful for our freedoms, but we certainly have gone too far...

What is scaring me is that people arent looking toward American cars as much as they used to. GM got bad publicity for the past 6 month, which created a major turn off with consumers. I hope it will get all better.
