First of all, I'm sure they already know about us. Second, they have lots of people working for them who know how to use the internet search engines and who browse the net for both business and pleasure. Third, I'm not saying we shouldn't have GM or Cadillac individuals posting here, just that as a corporation GM/Cadillac should not be approached - certainly not at this early stage in our development. IMHO of course.Allante North * said:Should we wait for them to find us by accident, and then wait for hell to freeze over?
One of the semi-regular posters on the AllanteNet site is a GM engineer that worked on the Northstar from the beginning and did lots of work on the Allante until it fizzeled. He mentioned doing some high performance work back then with the 4.1L, 4.5L, and the Northstar, but no mention of anything to do with current engines. I will PM him to ask what they are doing now if you like and invite him here if y'all like.
I think Cadillac's hey day was when they actually had a super hero designer. It's basically been the bean counters calling the shots since the '70's.Dead Sled said:...and not the neo-ulta-comtemporary super hero designer that thinks he knows what we want.
the Sandman said:Human nature and the corporate mentality come into play here. It is possible that at some point GM or Cadillac would come to view this community as a valuable resource. However, the way to accomplish this is *not* to invite them in :shhh: - it's to develop into as large, respectable, and productive an endeavor as possible, than wait for tham to come to us.
I think that would be a fine idea.. Let's see what happens..Allante North * said:I will PM him to ask what they are doing now if you like and invite him here if y'all like. [/B]
