For the 2 years that I had a Ford Mustang, Ford was overly concerned with my happiness. I almost feel like trading in my ZL1 for a Shelby. If I didn't take a big hit, I might actually do so.

They can't force the dealer to do anything, but they can put pressure on the dealer to give the Hoopers a new 2013 or 2014. At minimum, Chevrolet could make up the difference. GM should also offer to have the ZL1 delivered to the Hoopers at the Canadian plant and give them a tour. This would be good business, especially considering that he has other Chevy vehicles and has been a loyal and enthusiastic customer for years.

I guess there is a reason GM needed a bailout.

Don't go attacking me now. GM is a company not a living thing. I won't blindly follow a company like a lemming. I am only loyal to companies that go above and beyond.

I was waiting for this. This is good business and good karma. Not that their offer was just for publicity, but the money they will make in "good will" will be exponentially more than this awesome gesture.

I was hoping another SMART Chevy dealer would offer Hooper to make up the difference between the $44k insurance settlement and a new ZL1. For $10k or so it would be unbelievable marketing.

Good job, Pfadt.

I am quite sure Pfadt made this offer for all the right reasons and in true sincerity. That being said, they just made a future customer out of me. Way to go guys![

All I have to say is that this^^^^^ is awesome!

And I really really hope the dealership stops acting like idiots and gives the man what he deserves, a brand new ZL1!

As public as this is going, I'm sure something good will happen. I remember the story about the guy that took his Camaro in for service and left a tape recorder in there. He caught them beating on his car, he posted here on C5 and then it went public and he was taken care of.

Interestingly enough, if you search for First State Chevrolet on FB, this parody page is the first one that comes up... does not bode well for the dealership.

Oh, their FB page is down again. Either DoS'ed or they took it down because of all the bad publicity they are getting on this issue. Either way, the parody page is now their only presence on FB for anyone looking for them.

Be very careful with that page, it could be viewed as borderline if not defamatory and you could easily be paying for his Camaro...

Just a question, has GM even contacted you, if you can even say. Just asking, I would think this is going to be collateral damage for GM.

Best of luck, I have not posted on there page in hope that the dealer will do right for the right reason.
Best of luck....
