Just a few days ago Bob Lutz of GM was quoted as saying the V-8's were, contrary to GM's predictions, "80% of sales."

The latest Spastic Squirrel numbers show V-8's are 62%.

There seems to be a disconnect here too.

It was almost 80 % of pre orders but is slipping as the cars approach 100,000 units.

Bob was right the last time some one told him.

I might have a rare one. 2LT Aqua Blue Manual Tran. Two things I don't understand, 1) I had a 68 that was almost the same color as the one I now have. Then I think it was one of the most popular colors and now it is one of the least ordered. 2) Why would you discontinue a color with in the first 8 months it was offered?

Nice break down ~ Thanks.

I guess what it's really telling me is if something were to happen to my car I can get another one just like it.








Some how it wouldn't be the same

Hmmmm...... 119 Camaro's just like mine now. Was better back in the day when it was like 1 of 8 nationwide. I'm still one of a kind in South Carolina through. No wonder everyone always knows where I am all the time.

I believe the difference in numbers may be attributed to the difference between the number of cars produced versus the number of cars delivered. Dealer stock and those in transit....

So I gotta ask, with IBM only selling a couple more cars than ABM, How did they pick which one got the axe?
