Holy horsepower Batman, today's Detroit Free Press reported a GM Designers toy Corvette based on the existing car was built and shown to the press at Milan Dragway near Detroit. Unfortunately, no performance numbers were given! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

Mark Reuss (executive director of engineering, operations, and special vehicles at GM design) says "I want to take what we're doing here on an enthusiasts basis and link it into the production vehicle plan." He goes on...."The idea is for GM to make all sorts of design and technical possibilities available to its customers so they can create more individualized toys of their own."

WOW, we need to do something to get Mr Reuss promoted to Chairman and CEO of GM!

I would expect an article on this in Autoweek magazine real soon.

Frank, you still planning on coming over on Monday?

Lambinator: How 'bout joining us at my place? What's your beverage of choice? I already know Frank's.

Well shoot, I have a mountain biking club outing on Monday on the west side (I96 and US23), so I can't make it until later 8:30ish. Might have to make it another time. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif
