Default A different Lumina, looks familiar...

Check this out. GM really needs to think about bringing its foreign cars to the U.*. more often.

That'* what I was aluding to. GM has this whole plethora of vehicles that will never see US soil, and most of us will never know exist. Some are actually pretty cool.

GM didn't build that. Holden did. They just slap the Chevy bowtie on it down there.

GM owns Holden, right? Does GM actually build anything? Chevy does not make Luminas anymore. I think they were replaced with the Impala. If they managed to make that Lumina SS look different than the GTO, I think it would be a good idea to bring it in as the Monte Carlo. I don't particularly like the current one.

I believe GM and Holden have a 'strategic partnership'. GM does not own Holden. This is a budding relationship. I expect the success or failure of the new GTO will determine any future cooperation.

HSV or Holden Special Vehicles are an aftermarket company which is joinly owned by Tom Walkinshaw Racing Group (TWR) (75%) and General Motors - Holden Australia (25%). They have a close affinity with both these organisations.
