Oh, oh.

I think I can get them in order.

Chevy Celebrity, olds Cutlass Ciera, Buick Century, and Pontiac, err, was it 6000?

A few posts up you guys were talking about the Avalanche being dead. Does that also spell the end for the Escalade EXT?

Interesting rumor that if Peugeot-Citroen continue on their downward spiral, they may fall under GM control.

So Fenwick, we had a 2009 Traverse up until a few months ago. I notice over the years here locally (Augusta GA area) that none of the Chevrolet dealers ever pictured or advertised the vehicle. Camaros, Corvettes, Trailblazers Tahoes, Impala, Malabus, but never once a Traverse.

What's up with that.

Well, Traverse sells pretty damn well without much advertising. A lot of what you see on TV are dealer-run ads though, keep that in mind. If your dealer isn't have much trouble moving Traverse inventory then they won't bother advertising and would rather focus on launch products like Impala. GM's marketing strategy would be the same.

And you wouldn't see TrailBlazer ads because TrailBlazer hasn't been in production for the US market for five years now.

It's the same reason there hasn't been a lot of Camaro commercials made. Granted the Transformers movies are basically two hour long GM commercials, but it sells well enough without a lot of marketing.

Corvette 60th Anniversary is currently going on at the National Corvette Museum and according to the schedule of events, something will be revealed tomorrow around 1:00 PM. I have no idea what so we'll all just have to wait and see.

Double NOOOO!!! I guess considering they are far out of my price range, it's not a terrible thing as they will probably be pretty affordable used in 2-3 years when i'd be ready.

They wouldn't reveal the Z06 or ZR1 this early would they?
