    And am I not the only one that finds it really impressive that the 500HP 7.0 LS7 in the Z06 gets 16/26 mpg?

    I'm surprised by the amount of people agreeing so far. I've always been a GM fan, but I'm not very optomistic. :hs:

    Why is that? Sales have been improving although still not as good as they should be, and current and upcoming vehicles are becoming more promising.

    I don't ever see myself buying a GM, or Ford. If anything, a Chrysler :dunno:

    I fully agree, but while there are a lot of brand loyal folks out there keeping them afloat, I'm seeing more and more of the ignorant mentality that "American cars are junk", "I'll only buy an import", etc. I also think GM's recent history is going to bring more hardships. Their track record isn't exactly great, and is helping to contribute to the mentality above. :dunno:

    Not to say that the brand loyal people are all that's keeping them going. There are fortunately a lot of open minded people out there, and intelligent consumers who realize that they are getting good products for their money.

    Agree, although it would be nice to see all of them be profitable again.

    I work for the government, and as long as they keep producing base madel Malibus.... they're in good shape. For whatever reason, the commonwealth here buys them up like PS3's.

    With that being said, I absolutely hate the fuckers... would never buy one.

    :rly:

    Solstice, Sky, G6, GP, Vette, almost all of the Cadillac line, and damn near every truck they make is pretty much a win as far as most people are concerned. :dunno:

    Why not just stick with the Corvette. Unless the Camaro has an MSRP in the $20-$30K range, I don't see a point in bringing this thing back.
