    Dodge Viper was just sad, it had Ford GT level quality for a much cheaper price but it was going up against the Corvette which was the car most people bought, probably bad marketing killed it......McLaren was super aggressive and now they're successful even though they started selling cars in 2010....

    I never even heard about the Chevy SS until I went looking for my current car (CTS-V). Had I known earlier I likely would have bought one.
    Speaking of buying without a test drive: When the new Supra came out I went to a Toyota dealership to maybe drive one. I walked in and asked the guy if they had one to drive. They were out of stock so I asked when they might have one to look at. He replied "Why, would you need to test drive a Ferrari?" Seriously. To which i replied "probably not but this is a Toyota" and walked out.🤣

    Chev made a huge mistake to close Holden and stop production of a fantastic vehicle lineup. Although, if it came to 🇨🇦 I would buy one. However, only as a Holden. Living in Australia, I remember the Holden commodore had alot of pep. The styling got better and better from early nineties. I owned a Ford Falcon Ghia and it had cues from the mustang although 4 door. Weird. The Holden ute was a devil machine. The power, sound, and presence was a 100% cool!

    GM executives really aren't smart at all. They killed off Pontiac and Holden and left Buick and Cadillac, two old people brands. They didn't market the G8 or the SS. Why the hell would you introduce new products if you aren't going to market them?? Hell, even their own sales team barely knew anything about these cars. Back in 2009 my dad was looking to buy a new G8 GT so one day I stopped by our local Buick/GMC/Pontiac dealer and asked the first salesman I saw if I can take a look at the new G8's they have on their lot. His reply was "What is a G8? You mean a G6? We have plenty of those I can show you!" I mean how many bankruptcies would it need to go through before GM can get someone in there who actually has a functioning brain?

    The Contour SVT was the single biggest POS vehicle I have ever owned.....by miles. The following all happened over the course of 18 months of ownership. 3 dashboards. Yup.....3. All replaced under recall. 9......NINE total alternators....all under warranty. Headliner collapsed after 6 months. Various interior trim pieces would fall off. Power steering failed and had to be replaced after 9 months. Firestone tires delaminated (right rear and front left). Paint on passenger front fender was peeling off and the roof was fading BAAAAAAD. I never drove the car hard at all as I never felt confident in it once. 10k miles is all I put on it in 18 months. Ford finally took it off my hands through a buy back and I got into an Acura Integra that I absolutely LOVED and experienced zero problems with. The Contour platform was an absolute nightmare for Ford. I've never owned another Ford product since and most likely never will again.
