    Is there anything going on with the Granite? Is it still in the works, or the rumored cancelled from last year?

    I think someone found an old press release for the award and wrote a piece thinking it was for this year.

    That was my guess, some poor journalism going on. The article has today's date on it. That's some sloppy work "Eric Lacy".
    I was through the GMC section twice and saw no Granite's! lol

    I saw a story on the COPO convertible yesterday that stated it had a "4.0L supercharged V8".

    Close at least, it's a 4L Supercharger on a 5.3L LSX
