I think the Press, be it print, Radio, TV, web, whatever, still has a "Show me!" attitude when it comes to General Motors Corporation of Flint, Michigan. While I partly blame GM and partly blame a media bias, there is no doubt in my mind that had Honda announced Volt for 2010, Click and Clack would have taken that as carved in stone, from what I have heard from them on Public Radio.
So I as a GM supporter, am now happy (well, somewhat) that they at least gave Volt some onscreen time, and interviewed the Wall St. Weenie GM hater reporter. Oh, and then Beth Lowery showed up again. I just like how she chooses words, by the way.
So since I am used to seeing GM get dissed in the media, I automatically accepted the not so implied insult that Volt would never see the inside of a dealership. I guess that is sad, truth be told.
But people, no matter HOW much they say they want that 40 mile range Volt, absolutely salivate over a 550 hp Shelby Mustang...or a gorgeous drop top Camaro. As much as we SAY we want fuel mileage, most of us will go for "drop dead gorgeous and go like hell" every time.
I like Volt better, because I see it as the future. But oh yes, I do love that pretty, pretty Camaro.
