I would like for you to explain what the public has to do with a bunch of cars that the police would drive? The public will have very little to do with this car.Originally posted by laserwizard@Jun 25 2004, 02:07 PM
Good decision by GM. American didn't like the Caterra which is essentially the same product (with different engines) and American isn't going goat wild with the GTO either. GM needs to be serious with its platforms and have something that isn't just a warmed up, tired European/Aussie model with some new headlamps, grill, and tail lights. It is obvious that in these transplants GM is unwilling to spend a dime on different sheet metal to make them look substantively different, so GM, had it introduced the Caprice, would have looked stupid peddling a five year old Cadillac with a different grill which was really then a tired five year old Eurocentric piece of garbage.
I also think this is good, but for totaly different reasons that Lazer has blurted out.
Why does GM NEED to make a cop car? Im sure cops would love it, but to be just a fleet factory? Why not wait for Zeta to come out.
and its not the Omgea chassis Lazer. Its very different from Omega. Yeah, its based off Omega, but the chassis has been morphed and evolved into the VX chassis. There is very little that will trasfer from one to the other. The GTO has very little to do with this car.
And this Eurocentric piece of garbage is 100000x better then anything Ford has to offer. A Ford fan like yourself should never talk about old chassis as Ford is the KING of the old mothball platforms.
