The Shoutbox
Shelby made a SuperSnake for his buddy, Bill Cosby. Cosby was so scared by the car he gave it back. The next owner of the car proceeded to kill himself in it, by driving it off a cliff.
We talkin' bout the one where Matt Damon was cast as a giant (literal and figurative)?

Now that's a movie I'm totally interested in! I have to wait for it to come to Netflix though.

Ford flourished after that bailout but even they have failed to innovate.
I never was a fan of Pontiac. GM had a bad habit of running too many brands, and they have done a poor job with the few they have left.

I really wish we hadnít bailed them out.

I mean, it was the only American made car in the worldís top 3 oldest car brands, and now we have no claim to such fame. How do you kill a rich history like that?!

Pontiacs were their line of sports cars.. they were the highest priced cars other than Buicks. Original price of a 1968 Firebird in 1968 was $2,887. If you have a "Concours" (mint) one now days,, its worth about $38,000. I wish I had $38,000 now to buy one
Olds was the brand of firsts: the assembly line, the speedometer, the monobloc V8, and the automatic transmission. They even made the first windshield HUD and were the first FWD stock car to win on Pikeís Peak.

Thatís a lot of history in one shout
