: V on car crazy on speed channel last nite

03-10-06, 03:52 PM
The guy who runs gm performance division, as well as a couple V's and a V16 tahoe were on speed last nite...anyone see it? I was just yelling at the screen when the guy who runs the division came on. I was like you :thepan: moron, instead of upping the anti on hp and tq why dont u first fix the slew or problems associated with the current V's - traction issues, diffy issues, etc etc, including the inability to produce proper times with the cars power. ie .12.8 bone stock, instead of 12.8 with a maggie. I promise a good driver could probably run 12.5 in our cars if we had the proper rear end and traction was not as big an issue. So I was getting a little hyped up at 4 in the morning. :yawn: ....anyways just thought Id let everyone know it was on tv.

Well that kinda sucks, I've been watching the speed channel to see if they showed anything V and hadn't seen it yet. Maybe they'll replay it. Thanks for the info though :)

I'll try and get it/ find it and post...

I think it was Car Crazy with Barry Meguiar. I wish I would have paid attention. :) I love to hear those excuses. The SpeedTV's website is down at 1am.

Here is the schedule if someone wants to put it in digital form


They use the CTS-VR or whatever the race version engine is with DTM style fender flares, Sparco seats, and the nicest padded roll bar that even Barry make fun of. They call it the M1....hmmmm wonder where they got name from. Makes me wonder if GM will ever lead again.... :-/

Looks like Thursday Mar 16th at 9:30 PM est is the next one. I'll try to set the PVR and grab it.

Sunday, 9:30AM. It is worth seeing, but nothing earth-shaking.

@9am, American Muscle Car is also worth watching (Impala SS 427).

Next Wednesday is a new episode.

Best regards,

Funky, the online schedule I was looking at was showing the 9:30 AM show on the 12th was "Behind the Scene’s" of Car Crazy, not the GM performance episode ?

Holy schedule change Batman ! It looks like they've changed shows now and are going to show the "Behind the scenes" episode instead :eek:

The Speed Vision auto show time is what my wife calls my porno shows. When they are showing, you cannot get me away from them.
I viewed the CTS V special M1 (meant to parallel the BMW ultimate car release) showing. Fascinating. I am living in the correct era on this earth.
Thank you.:worship: Thank you! :bouncy:

That show was old....they didn't even have a sts-v to show.

The "special" V was all cosmetic from what I saw, built for the Woodward cruise.

The V they showed even had the regular CTS grill.

M-1 is actually a reference to Woodward Avenue, aka Michigan Hwy 1, not the BMW. http://www.woodwarddreamcruise.com (http://www.woodwarddreamcruise.com/)

I tried to talk my wife into letting me put the V-16 in her Denali like the one on the show, but she wasn't for it. However, there is a 427 short block in my garage waiting to be put in the V.:sneaky:

Don't bother it was a huge let down. The V was shown for maybe 20 seconds after 5 minutes of talk build up w/out the car. It looked like a CTS with the CTS-R racing front end and a roll cage. If you missed it you didn't miss much.
