Speculation on the first Foreign Make and Model to have a section on GMFORUM.com - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

Default Speculation on the first Foreign Make and Model to have a section on GMFORUM.com

I am going to speculate on the first Foreign Make and Model to have it'* own section at GMFORUM.COM.

Answer below

Hint- they make somewhat ugly cars, they drive real sweet


They were first an aircraft company



Their home country is famous for loganberries and buxom blondes


It is the Saab 9-7X. Made by GM in the USA.

Technically, the Vibe is a Toyota.

The Vibe would never get enough members to earn a Section. Toyota was fist an aircraft company also, weren't they? Seems ironic we have Kamikaze pilots in both Japanese planes AND in vehicles with sticky gas pedals and quirky drive by wire throttle position switches. hehehe

The correct answer IS ..... OVER MY DEAD BODY!!!.

In reality it will take both, enough members to have interest and enough members who can credibly help with mods/tech issues. We dont have it, and I don't want to encourage it. Primarily this will remain a 3800 Forum showing some love to other American made GM Models. In 20+years as the last ones hit the JY'* and I am sucking my Scotch flavored "Ensure", somebody else can take on where this place goes.

Guess the Fiero is not coming anytime soon? The Saab is actually the Olds Bravada after it was discontinued....

Never know, might find a Fiero section. I know of 1 or 2 members who may be putting a 3800 in one.

Doesn't make for a Section though. One of the things I worried about when changing BF to GMF was something thats kills many companies and organizations (including Forums) They try to be something for all. If anything I would look for pruning, not growth. Here a question that isnt speculation. Guess what brand Section I am killing when I get time to get into that area of the basement?
