Sure. No problem with that.

GM can't just build a bunch of cheap econoboxes.

Where'd that come from? When I see a commercial comparing the Corvette to a rocket, my first thought isn't that its a car for the average Joe.

Well in prime time every third commercial is for the CTS. I guess it's building the brand, although in terms of cars sales, i don't know. The CTS gets more commercials than the Malibu.

You gotta strut what you got. And, your target has to have the cash for it too...

And the CTS is just a little bit cooler then the trusty Malibu.

"..America Still builds Rockets" Vette Commercial

Just saw a Vette Commercial. It starts of with a narrator speaking with old videos playing. First Video was a Rocket taking off. The last part shows a guy rolling a Hand Man Vette engine across the factory floor and a close up of a camera going through a Vette engine block, while the Narrator is saying "Its nice to know America Still Builds Rockets." then finally cuts to a White Vette hauling it and roasting the tires around turns at a track.

Has anyone else seen it?

And where is our GM Camaro Commercial.

Except isn't the argument against Camaro commercials, going back into the 90's, that they advertise "what sells the most". The CTS doesn't sell that many cars compared to the Malibu--less than the Camaro as well.

Gm doesn't need a commercial to sell Camaros. Its not like their gathering rust at the dealerships. Unless its a stealership that is.

I loved seeing the ZR1 get sideways. Chevy needs more commercials like that. They need a commercial with the Camaro, not to sell the Camaro, but Chevys in general.

The avereage Joe does not get to ride in a rocket to the moon but I still love the fact that we could do it. The ZR1 is also quite an accomplishment.

It's a pride thing. :flag2:

Seriously... The "bean counting" thread is over at pocketprotector.com

It would just be nice to see what they would come up with. I like car commercials that rock and the new Vette commercial is “OUTSTANDING”; it really sends chills down your back. How cool would it be to see a Camaro commercial that would do the same… Car commercials are just another part of the “car culture”, history so to say, a flash in time that’s cool to look back on. For some reason ford has always been the leader at putting out great car commercials. They did it with the gt and they have always done it with the mustang.

It brings the average joe into the dealership for a look and then he buys the vehicle he can afford. It's an attention getter. I'm sure there is alot of people that go in to look at the SS and drive away in the LT or LS.

They're not bashful. Chevy aims to prop up the efficiency and technology of the Camaro. But there's really no harm is making some loud exhaust-music while you're at it. They haven't seemed to wrap their minds around that quite yet. I want to put my foot in my mouth, now...Mr. and Mrs. GM-readers!!!

One has to wonder, though...if the return-on-investment factor was considered...a Camaro commercial certainly makes more sense than this one. It reaches a FAR larger audience, and the car is MUCH more attainable...Here's to hoping they put one out like that one in...what...Mexico, was it?
