2014 C7 Corvette: See it Here

Just when you thought that the C6 was the pinnacle of Corvette awesomeness, they went and created the 2014 C7 Corvette.  Steve, at Motor City Times, has the pics… Then, the Dallas News has more details…   Wave bye-bye to the old plastic-fantastic Corvette, America’s original sports car. In a nod to the past and a major reach for the future, Chevrolet unveiled the all-new 2014 Corvette tonight in Detroit, renaming it the Chevrolet Stingray. The much anticipated ‘Vette was introduced on the eve of the opening of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. And you can forget […]

Obama the Out-sourcer in Chief? GM Claims that it’s Future in in China

During this campaign, much has been made of Bain Capital outsourcing jobs to other countries.  But, what of President Obama, especially his takeover of “government motors?”  This video says much… Sadly, the management at GM is taking advantage of an expanding Chinese market, and, they are probably trying to escape union goons.  But, Obama set all of this up.  A usual, someone else will be blamed, and if anything is proposed, it will be a punishment against those that try to stay in business.  Perhaps they’ll build a wall, to keep anyone from escaping?

Chevy Volt Production Suspended: And how Much did that Cost us?

The Chevy Volt went from a very promising concept, to a very real failure.  If you recall, the Volt was initially a show car, and being planned for production prior to the governments takeover of GM.  The original idea was evolutionary; the car would be electric, with a small gas engine on board to charge the batteries.  It actually generated some excitement.  But, just before they were supposed to start rolling off the assembly line, we were told that the production Volt was nothing more than a hybrid car-and a rather expensive hybrid car at that.  Competing in a market […]

Chevy Volts are Recalled (Kind of): All of Them

When GM was still GM, and NOT Gubmint Motors, the Volt was the next big thing.  If you recall, the original vision for the Volt was for it to be an electric car, with a small gas motor to recharge the batteries.  It actually generated some excitement, and it promised massive mileage.  That, of course, turned out to be a gigantic lie-one that was not disclosed until the car was just about to go into production.  By then, of course, GM had been turned into a government operation.  And, like any other government operation, GM, and the Volt in particular, have […]

This Ford Commercial Kicks! "Owner" States that he Bought a Ford Because They Didn't Take Government Bailout Money

Car_crash_2

I’ve had guessed that Ford’s increased sales after the auto-bailouts were due to people rebelling against government motors.  Might this commercial be a confirmation? I remember visiting a Ford dealership not too long after Ford sales increased.  When I asked, a salesman smiled and said that a lot of buyers were saying that the bailouts were why they chose Ford.  In a sense, all the steps that Ford took to get new products out, and improve existing ones coincided with this potential rebellions against the bailouts.  From their perspective, if it had to happen, the timing was perfect.  Ironically, it was Ford […]

Barry Lies Again: Government Motors Does not Have to Honor General Motors Warranties

Car_crash_2

Remember this? Well, it appears that this statement does NOT cover cars built before Barry became a car maker… Well, the president better get on the bus and head from Martha’s Vineyard to Blakely, Pennsylvania, with some tools and a set of new tires to fix Donna Trusky’s Impala. GM will not honor her warranty. From Reuters: NEW YORK, Aug 19 (Reuters) – General Motors Co. is seeking to dismiss a lawsuit over a suspension problem on more than 400,000 Chevrolet Impalas from the 2007 and 2008 model years, saying it should not be responsible for repairs because the flaw predated […]

The Summer of Unrecovery: Car Sales to Reach 28 Year low

As the Summer of Recovery© continues, evidence reveals the overall fail of the Obama economic policies.  Recently, housing sales tanked.  All this year, the government and their media apologists have been forced to discuss, “unexpected” and “unanticipated” statistics, like increases in unemployment and decreases in economic indicators.  For the latest, Hot Air provides us with a link to see how “Government Motors” are doing. U.S. auto sales in August probably were the slowest for the month in 28 years as model-year closeout deals failed to entice consumers concerned the economy is worsening and they may lose their jobs. Industrywide deliveries, to be released […]
