The clearance sale on the 2013 model will be welcomed by all that want new, this is great for GM and marketing and exciting time for shoppers !

Did we invent the folding bed because we were always on the move, chased by the white man?? You just fold it and put on your head when it comes to finding a new place to sleep.

Just kidding !

after the lousy underhanded way the federal government, the GM mismanagement team, and unions screwed over long standing stock, bond holders in GM stealing their holdings, equity in the GM bankruptcy case I don't purchase GM products.

there are so many great automotive products in the market place I don't need to deal with thieves.

I thoroughly echo your sentiment about the bankruptcy handling of equity owners. It was theft. I don't see how they pulled it off. Still, I have to go with what's best for me.

I bought a Hyundai sonata. V6 more standard equipment at no additional cost than GM ever offered.

10 year 100,000 warrantee on power train convinced me.

does GM have anything close to that???

One thing we all know is it isn't the "name" on the car that sells it. It is the money that the buyer has to spend that sells it.

Have you checked new car prices lately? A new pickup truck can cost over $50,000.

If I had been asked to guess, I would have guessed the price of a Vette at well over $100,000.

I would agree Farmer. $100,000 will probably be around the price for the Vette.

The escalation in car/truck prices in relation to the buying power of the great majority of working class Americans spells disaster for the auto industry and, on a larger scale, the whole U.S. economy.

Thirty years ago I bought a new pickup and a new car every 4 years. We could pay for them, plus pay everything else, on the income from 10 acres of tobacco, 200 acres of grain, and 100 cows and my wife's part time job that paid barely more than minimum wage. The average factory worker earned enough to do that as well. There is no way that anyone could do that today.

No it doesn't. America is now only the 2nd largest car market in the world, and is falling fast. We aren't the only game in town anymore.

That's especially true for the car in your avatar.

Someone could get a real sports car for the MSRP of one of those.

I would not buy a Corvette for $12,000. I would not drive one if it were a gift. I would sell it ASAP. It's just too impractical and eye catching for me. I enjoy watching others do these things though.
