2014 Chevy SS Teaser

An article with info and some pics of the 2014 Chevy SS, a muscle car that is an evolution of the Pontiac G8. Looks pretty interesting.

It's made in Australia and sold under the Holden name. The late model GTO was made there, and I believe the G8 was made there.

I think only the G8 GXP was made in Australia.

Why is it easier to be a conservative than a liberal? Because it is easier to give a man the finger than a helping hand.

I never really understood that Australia connection. Does GM own Holden? Is it a GM plant or a Holden plant? Are they GM designs with Holden badges in Australia or are they Holden designs with GM badges in America?

I believe GM own Holden. I know when they owned SAAB they gave SAAB the platform and then SAAB built their car on it. Wasn't supposed to happen that way and that's why they sold SAAB
