And yet he's the PERFECT spokesman for boring Chevy.

That's, like, your opinion, dude. Relax a little, maybe? Weed's legal up there, no?

I mean, it's not actually an opinion. Scion was a marketing team. That's it. They had no engineers or designers. OK, maybe one person to figure out how to economically swap badges. But that's it.

I can verify that because I met them all (or at least saw their workspace if they weren't there) during the First86 Long Beach event prelaunch.

I hope all the GM workers from the closing plants ban together and torch the corvette plant.

Seems unlikely. The Corvette plant is in Bowling Green, KY and its about the only industry there. I'm guessing the employees at the plant like their jobs better than they like their union, and having spent a lot of time in KY I can tell you they are most likely well armed.

I'm always well armed when I'm in KY.

No more pics at the moment. I think I paid a fair price for a running, driving 37-year old vehicle. The most serious thing wrong with it is that the gas gauge doesn't work.

I also found a set of vintage louvers for it that hopefully went into a UPS truck today. They have me thinking how good louvers would look on my BRZ.
