    Engine sizes/ post count

    at 10k posts, do we get to decide what engine/powertrain we are? I always wanted to be the Saturn 70 mpg two mode hybrid though I guess I've rather be a 3800 Series IV 3V VVT AFM S/C

    ...maybe they'll just switch from metric sizes over to cid's, like 265, 327, 350, 396, 409, 427, 454, 455, etc.?

    This always comes up. Nope, you don't get to choose. I think if that's implemented, people will start free posting and lowering their posting quality once they're in sight of the 10,000 post mark just to cross the boundary sooner.

    When I hit 1,000,000 posts I am going to legally change my name to Buick 61 GMInsideNews.

    I had better get posting!

    Am I at 1,000,000 yet?

    It was a nice try. Put me on the list for a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-8W...

    Did you just copypasta this question from your exact same post from three years ago?

    Proposed Cadillac Tag Lines...

    Cadillac is Truck.
    Cadillac is Cadence!
    Cadillac, you have to crawl before you walk,
    Cadillac V8? Whats a V8?
    Cadillac, the potential of mixed feelings!
    The New Cadillac Flagship: The Chevy Corvette.
    Proposed Volt Tag Line..
    People who don't like the Volt haven't driven one, and
    People who hate the Volt listen to too much talk radio.
