    Re: Holden Commodore/Pontiac G8 to remain as Chevy Caprice

    Nice. I've been interested in G8's as well, I'm going to be in the market for a new car soon. I'd still consider a G8 as long as I feel comfortable that I can still get service in the future, and having the car rebadged as a Chevy only increases my comfort level...

    While I understand the sentiment, you do realize that the government has loaned GM a lot of your tax dollars right? Telling people not to buy is not the optimal strategy for getting them back.

    Hahahahaha! We are never going to get them back. The best option is to punish those in charge by not supporting their folly.

    Although even I have to admit the new Chevy Camaro looks awesome........

    This is great news. The G8 is a fantastic machine. I'm glad Lutz is sticking around. He's one of the few 'doers' left in Detroit.

    The best option is for people to buy the best vehicle for their needs. If that happens to be a GM, then they should buy a GM. If others have a problem with that, tell them to go **** themselves.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year oldís life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Caprice is a terrible name for that beast of a car.

    Really wish they'd call it an Impala and take that name back to it's former greatness. The current version is a travesty.

    I guess so. You have to put it in perspective. It's a fast car when you compare it to other new $30K cars that are still comfortable, reliable, etc. Not everyone wants to drive their kids around in a top fuel dragster that gets 200 feet/gallon and needs to be rebuilt every 3 miles. What new sedan under $40K do you consider fast? I assume none.

    The government paid off the legacy cost and gave the company to the Auto Workers Union as a political payoff. Who wants to support that corruption?
