A little sloppy out there, so it took a little while to shine 'er up.
I don't do trailers.

I can't imagine there will be too many of those at the event.
So far no one has had any idea what it is. Most think it is one of the V coupes.
I have a plaque that tells the story of the Saks ELR that I put in the engine bay. It'll have the hood up.

This and the two Merkurs go to a lot of shows.
There has yet to be another of any of them at anything I've attended.

Looks like you're very ready!
It's very shiny... did a good wax job so the dirt came off pretty easily.
Now I just have to get out the chairs and chat away!

One guy thought it was an ATS-V coupe.
I talked to a guy that has a V-Wagon, same color. He should bring THAT to a show.

I live "in the country" and a small Hamlet I drive through has an old warehouse that stores cars and boats. Last fall, there was an Opulent Blue Metallic V-wagon parked out front! I should have done a 180 to check it out!

Beautiful car, one of the best GM designs ever, but that's just my opinion. This, the 2nd gen Corvair, the Fiero GT, the 1st and 2nd gen Buick Riviera and the C2 Corvette...probably my favorite GM designs.

Wow that is super nice inside. Does it drive as nice as it looks?
Yes, being a "mostly EV" it's very quiet and quick rather than fast.
With the pack so low in the car, there's not much body roll.

I run Kumho Ecsta PS91 tires, not any EV-specific tire. IMO, they're a waste of money.
I always have it in "L" (Max Regen) and use the regen paddles all the time.

Thanks for sharing. Volt-tech was killed way too soon. So much better in my view than pure EV.
