    GM spoils the Middle Eastern market with affordable performance while they peddle these ugly, gutless FWD pieces here at home.

    The most ironic part of this is that we get accused of being the horrible poluting united states while the rest of the world doesn't have to drive these shitty econoboxes

    these cars don't pollute at all.
    The New vette can actually receive tax deductions for being in the group of cars that is the cleanest out there.

    never heard of this tax deduction.


    although there is a $2000 tax deduction on the purchase of gas sippers that do at least 40mpg or something like that.

    that's my point, we get called rednecks for liking cars like these but they are actually just as clean if not more than the stupid ricer that has his civic tuned wrong
