Re: New Chevy Billboard Ads

said by pat_lc2000:

restored...the Volvos are original.

I admit I like the stingray. But the fact is they have done nothing to the Vette in almost 40 years. It needs a redesign and a face lift badly.
I dont care for the corvette, and it still looks like the same vette year after year over the last 40 years. but you have to admit under the skin there's been a lot of go fast development.

Athough its a quality ride Volvo is still as boring as it ever was.

as for the ads they are nostalgic and all, will appeal mostly to the elders who can relate but wont sell a lot of their present line up. Those ads are just the roots of the mentality at GM of how they got so screwed up as they are today.

don't get me wrong, i love Volvo's...the S60R is nice looking, and the new XC60 is pretty sweet too...i have a few friends who have older Volvo Wagons...they are great cars, but to say Vette's haven't changed in 40 years is rather silly.

I like the old Volvo 544's from the 1960's... I think they would make an excellent candidate for a very unique streetrod project...

I'm really a streetrodder at heart.... All they need is a small block Chevy stuffed under the hood... a slammed stance with some American Racing Torque Thrust mags....!!!!!

Hot damn...that maybe my next photoshop project for photoshopchop.com and renderosity.com

I stayed home tonight so that was probably my friend Pat in his 59 Corvette. A 59 & 60 are identical. Mine's candy apple red with white coves. Pat's is wine with white coves... I was there last week but was too tired today...

I have mag wheels and BFG TA tires. He has the period correct wide whitewall tires and Corvette correct hub caps...

this was around 5 - 530 pm, so it wasn't that late, and it's hard for me to distinguish colours in a hurry during the day.

Did you make it to Exhibition Park on Sunday? If you are ever at a car show and I'm there... Please introduce yourself... That goes for any other Canchatters...

Cheers & take care...
