    Thanks for nothing NBC

    I watched NBC's coverage of the NAIAS today and they really screwed up the CTS-V. They were showing the new CTS-V but essentially described it as a basic CTS. They listed the MSRP, HP, engine, and MPG of the standard CTS while doing the 360 degree camera on the V. Does anyone understand this car?

    Build it and they will come. I am a classic example. The street will understand in time.

    Let them believe what they want, it will make it easier for us to get what we want.

    See that kind of thing a lot, especially from sloppy news organizations looking to simply fill air-time.
    No problem, I'm relatively sure the enthusiast magazines will start buzzing over the next few months. Hell, the internet is already aglow with posts on the car. I'll be interested to see what Top-Gear says about it when they test it (and I'm VERY sure they'll test it). The test they did on the Mustang GT 500 was at least good for a laugh.

    I'm very eager to see what Top Gear has to say. The old V was about as much of praise you'll ever see them give an American car.
