Yep I can agree with some of what you have to say IRM. But you just contridicted yourself. Yes it will be platform sharing.
By stating that there would be a shared platform I didn't contridict myself. I just stated that it wouldn't be the Holden platform.
Every car manufacturer wants a platform that they can share numerous body styles with to save money. Like Neon and the PT Cruiser, the Montana and the Aztek, (ok, bad example) etc.
|You have been calling other people misinformed. Where are you getting your information besides from boards where people claim to be in the know, and claim to be GM people. Where in GM though? Development? Or just workers?|
Ok, misinformed may have been too strong of word. Granted, I don't even know the whole story. I don't claim to be an expert but being an f-body owner for over 10 years and reading almost every posting or press release I can find in regards to the f-bodies demise I would like to think that I have most of my information correct. All be it, I have been known to be wrong on an occassion or two.
As far as who these people are from GM on other boards I couldn't say who they are or what they do since I have never met these people. So I understand your point, in that, there may not be validity in what they have typed.
I guess my passion for the f-body took over when I typed my previous post. The car will definately be missed by many. Even those that are happy to see it go will eventually miss the only rear-wheel drive muscle car that Pontiac produced for 35 years.
Unlike most f-body owners, I never dreamt of owning a Trans Am or Camaro while in highschool, matter of fact ever since my Mom bought her Fiero in 1984 that's all I really wanted. But, once I bought my first Trans Am I was hooked. And then they go and re-introduce the convertible and then I became addicted.
So, even though the last f-body to roll off the assembly line is slated for mid 2002, I will always have one in my garage keeping my Fieros company.
