    Perhaps they should start building Buick Avistas

    We literally had a customer come to our dealership and say he wanted the new Avista. He was very disappointed when we told him GM had no plans on making that car.

    GM continues to be run by idiot beancounters.

    I still see no reason why they shouldn't. I suspect the Avista would attract a whole different demographic than the ATS and Camaro, so why not?

    About the fourth one like it since the numbers came out.

    GM's YTD results and position has made many unhappy about the range of possibles for Year End Totals and Net Results.

    Overall, they look great - and far better than expected compared to the rest most relevant.


    You have to laugh about tryin' to gnaw @ GM Inventory Levels End of November 2016, given the history of all that from January thru end of October - and in comparison to their main Competitors - especially Ford.

    I guess this story is supported by how many they've built this model year vs. how many have actually sold. At least the UAW and assembly line is happy.

    I think this is another troubling sign for the economy. Typically sports cars are the first to have sales slow downs.

    Your right. It is the bankster lead conspiracy that is making the Camaro numbers look bad. We need to forget about Camaro inventory and sales numbers, and instead concentrate on Colorado inventory and sales numbers, when discussing the Camaro. After all, the success of the Colorado / Canyon, and large SUV's raises the fortunes of the Camaro by association. Only blue tinted glasses fans could see anything bad in Camaro / ATS / CTS numbers and plant utilization. Those of us in the real know, know the truth. The free bonus being, when we accept the truth, we are then able to respond with page long posts that include pretty colors and bolds. That is the "secret handshake" that proves our inside knowledge.

    Of course, I could be wrong.

    Hey Ed, is GM still cranking out Camaro's in large quantities?? When do they cut the shift??

    GM, listen to me. Redesign this car, QUICKLY!
