Motor Trend mentioned this month that the next Holden Commodore, Pontiac GTO and BONNEVILLE will be on the new Zeta platform.

Somebody make a decision already. I'd prefer it to stay, but don't tease me.

It'* called marketing, folks. they ain't gonna give us a straight answer 'til the last minute so we follow the story.

Kinda like on the news "Will you have to shovel tomorrow? Find out tonight at 10...."
NO DAMMIT! I wanna know now! I got plans for 10 that don't involve you, you over dressed punk!!


Sorry.....

The original GTO engine was straight out of a Bonnevile.

Motor Trend is a lot of hype usually. 90% of the mag seems devoted to this sometimes.

I find magazines to be a couple months behind in automotive news, probably due to the internet and their printing deadlines.
