btw... I just saw a 90's Camaro with retrofitted LED lights in the front. Kinda weird looking.
Yeah, I think this new design trend is all part of GM 'reinventing' itself and they have been targeting foreign/asian markets, China in particular, since the mid/late 90's. I'll be interested to see the North American sales figures on this new design later in the year. I think it appeals to a younger crowd, but they're not the ones that can afford it.

I do really like the rear end on this new Corvette, looks like a Transformer ... but then, I've always been kind of a 'butt' guy, .

Re: 2014 Corvette

The day they got in bed with Obama, along with the corrupt Autoworkers Unions, was when I decided I'd never ever own a GM or Chrysler product ever.

Here's my favorite GM/Chrysler joint project, which they haven't built yet, but its coming soon...

I used to drive nothing but GM, but since the bailout, I bought a couple old Jeeps. It's kinda' Chrysler, but when you get into the nuts & bolts of the auto bailouts, Chrysler was just made more palatable for Fiat to come in and take over, where GM's deal screwed a lot of the suppliers, SE Michigan and the American taxpayer. Ford doesn't really have anything I like or can afford either, at the moment.

That's a tough looking truck, . Do they have a Nissan plant in AL? When I use to drive to Proctor & Gamble in Pineville, LA, I use to pass a Nissan plant in MS, I think, and if I remember correctly, AL got an auto plant or two as well.

Re: 2014 Corvette

Toyota in Huntsville, Hyundai in Montgomery, Honda in Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz in Tuscaloosa.

Baldwin County (SE Alabama) has a megasite available and a car plant is a typical buyer for megasites. So it'll probably be another one in the next few years.

The Airplane industry is the one thats about make South Alabama explode economically.

Yeah, I knew the airline industry was big down there, when did the Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa get there? I used to do a lot of work for BMW/Mercedes and travel to the BMW plant in South Carolina, but Mercedes in Tuscaloosa never came up.
