By the way, did they have the ugly Chinese concept car there with a wheel on the front, back and each side?

that Chevy 2500 needs bigger rims. It looks kind of stupid so high and only maybe 16 or 17 inch rims. I don't like the bumper either. Overall i think this truck has to go back to the drawing board. Other then that, all these vehicles are awesome.

Not sure if I missed any you'd appreciate. I did like the Tahoe Hybrid. No MPG ratings yet.:confused: They are working on it...:rolleyes:


That Chevy Volt was very cool looking. For a Fuel cell car, it was the best "design" there IMO. It wasn't a little *h*tbox either like most are doing.

Upgrades my man, Upgrades, they figure when you see it you'd pay the extra $1000 (or whatever) for the bigger meats, I would, and have several times.
On the bumper, I'd say it was the "glare" from the flash, it really did look pretty good. I like the "beef" of it.

There were 5 Corvettes. 2 on the turn tables, 2 on the floor for the ice cream drippers to slime up, and one hanging from the ceiling. Yes it was about 20' in the air. I couldn't tell if it were real, but it was the only car like that.

I am not sure what size those wheels are, but the wheels that are going to be on the V8 models will have bigger wheels, and by bigger i mean 19's to 21's.

You get some meatier tires it looks good, and that bumper is very intimidating, plus 650 ft-lbs or torque always looks good.

Also the GMC is much better looking IMO, i would check that one out. Still needs bigger rims/tires tho.

Again, upgrades, upgrades, upgrades....;) As long as they leave room under there for at least some big meats. I don't care too much about the wheels. I'd guess 1/2 would replace them anyway..Right.?

My PLEASURE...:D

Hard top is in Philidelphia, so no. We had it last year, so I'd guess it was redundant. The Challenger didn't reappear either.
I had the opportunity to ask those that had the knowledge, the Hardtop will be available for purchase 4th quarter 2008, and the convertible more than likely in summer '09.
They would not give me any details on engine specs, however, the LS7 engine display was located neatly next to the camaro display....Cooincidence, I hope not. Certainly would look good with the concept LS9 too...;)

Nope, but the same aftermarket outfit that built that Ford, will do the Kodiak or about anything else you can dream up.....All it takes is a little extra $$$....;)

For the $, The international was a good buy in comparison IMO...
