(((The world has changed and GM leads with their new world marketing.)))
No, the NFL booted them is what happened.
((((If the UAW is wise, as well as GM management, and neither get too greedy, a strike can be avoided and GM will see the 40's.))))
So, I guess you're saying it's totally impossible

(((What makes you think I'm a shut in? Why, just yesterday I was indulging in one of my many outdoor hobbies, spelunking.)))
I had no idea you were such a social butterfly, chebby. Bet you meet a lot of babes down in them caves. Never mind, I know a gentleman doesn't brag
(((And, stretch, you're bringing up brands that were axed? Sorry - out of context.)))
No, exactly in context with the common theme of GM's common habit of hyping, hyping and hyping a weird program, and then axing it.
(((Aztek, while not pretty, had many vehicles built and I still see them on the road today.)))
I don't see one a month, so apparently they sold a lot more of those losers in your area than mine.
This does not surprise me, persie.
PS: By the way, admitting the Aztek is 'not pretty' shows progress for you, persie. Well done
((((Allante and Reatta were pipe dreams and NEVER would make it to production without a reasonable business case.))))
Persie, I am sorry to have to inform you that both of these pipe dreams went into production.
Neither one ever sold 22,000 copies or so, and GM pulled their plugs. I think Allante sold about 3,000 copies a year until they killed it after 7 years.
It's probably a fairly safe bet at these low prices if you don't mind weathering another possible beating during the labor negotiations.

((((As you may have noticed, ol' Webby is not in the habit of answering questions he doesn't like. I'm guessing this will be one of them, so, I'll take the liberty of answering for him. Volt. He's talking about the Volt. The production Volt was changed from the original design study and this annoyed Webby. (I know, ALL production cars are modified from their original concepts, but apparently Webby doesn't know this.) Also, the Volt was recently cancelled after low sales. (I know, it wasn't cancelled, it was revised and improved - just like every car company does with all their cars, but apparently Webby doesn't know this either.) Does he have any other examples? No. No he doesn't.))))
You are a moron chebby.
Pontiac TransSport was one that illustrated a huge change between concept and production.
Cancelled after much hype yet low sales? Ummm....Allante.... Reatta....Fiero......Aztek.....Riviera.....Catera....All Saturns....All Hummers.....All Oldsmobiles....and on and on
Had a great time today out looking at hundreds of custom vehicles.
Maybe you should try getting out yourself, once in awhile.
(((Your program has been canceled long ago. You are nothing but an industry hating fool.)))
You are grasping at straws
Why would they do this in secrecy?
That is NOT the GM way.
The GM way is to hype and hype and hype a new product that is not close to ready, teasing the public until they get sick of it.
Then it is to introduce a lame-watered down version and explain that it has to be boring for manufacturability, safety, or aerodynamic reasons.
Then boast how great you think it still is going to do, in spite of the unpopular changes.
Then claim that you do not know why it is not selling.
After two or three years, cancel the program.
Sound about right?
