Son of a gun. You're right. And all these years I thought it was just GM being stupid...
Well, I still think "gage" _looks_ goofy that way, and the dictionary does call it an "alternate" spelling. There are also three other primary definitions of "gage" in the first place; "gage" as an alternate of "gauge" ranks fourth in order of importance.
Bonus question: What is the common name for the car part that GM used to call a "Delcotron"?
Bonus II: How about an "energizer"? (not to be confused with the Eveready bunny brand, but it'* close...)
