    if the reader cant comprehend what youre saying because its a gigantic runon sentence with random LARGE WORDS thrown in i suppose for EMPHASIS and lots of gratuitous punctutation!!!!!!?????? that the human brain has a hard time deciphering then its difficult for the reader to determine what it is exactly that youre trying to get across especially when the subject of your rant changes every few lines from one thing to another.Its the type of thing that people normally just scroll right past since it gives them a HEADACHE!!!!! to try and read and basically looks like it was written by a pissed off teenager on myspace and not an adult car enthusiast with the purchasing power to buy a $70k automobile??????.This of course is just my opinion and perhaps the average person will take the time to slowly read an entire post like this and determine its actual meaning but I will not not.

    Guy gets into a cab in Boston and asks the driver," Hey do you know of a really good place where I can get scrod?"

    The cabbie turns and replies," That is the first time I have heard that term used in the pluperfect subjective".

    Re: GM is about to miss the boat... Again

    GM is in a can’t win situation. I mean think about the 01 Z06 owners. They bought into the hype about 385 hp and it being the best Corvette ever line. And on paper and on the street it was. 02 They mad it better and easier to get, thanks GM for screwing the 01 guys. Next case, there was no F Body to compete with the Mustang. So GM threw the GTO together gave it name that would give it some history and sold it o the public. Well 05 came around and they quit production on the LS1 and started using the LS2 which makes around 50 more hp. If would have bought ether one of those model year cars I would have been hot. I don’t understand the thought behind marketing like that. I mean they knew they were going to drop the LS1 in 04, why did they put it in the GTO for a one year offer. I like GM I really do but most of the time I think my dumb @$$ could do a better job. Or at least I couldn’t do worse.

    At least the power is the same. How made would we be if the 06 and 07’s where LS7’s.
    How cool would it be if GM were to take 10 owners that owned the current production model (in are case it would be the V1) and get there input on what could make the next generation car better. I mean if you took 10 of us from the board and we all gave are dislikes about are V’s and what would have made it better how bad @$$ would the V2 be?

    You don't remember but there was a conference call with the 04/05 owners that accomplished nothing, ableit not for them anyways.

    It might of had some influence on the 09 design, but it only helps if you want to trade up.
