Visited the Bowling Green KY plant a few months ago and the Cadillac XLR was ready to go. No one had ANY INFO AT ALL on the C6. I drove all around the plant and did not see a single C6 prototype (just a black XLR cruising around).

Since the XLR is reportedly using roughly the same gear as the C6 it sounds like the changes will be along the lines of re-fitted body panels, updated interior and a tweaked 5.7 V8. You can't expect a chassis redesign form a car that came out in 1997, can you??

Still praying that the C6 is made bigger inside for taller drivers (I am definately buying a 2005 if it is). Also, I'm on my 2nd vette and really like the look of some of the new imports that use more wood and aluminum (like the Mercedes SLR concept). I am 100% Ok with Corvette assuming a high performance image for 2005 as they have been doing but I also want possibly wood and some carbon fiber with aluminum.

I also hope the 2005 Cadillac STS is competitive in size with the current Mercedes S Class.

no reservations needed for the tour

What was wild was the Jack Daniels distillery tour that I visited on the way back to ATL (where I drove from). Overall I'd recommend the tour to anyone.

Let's get a factory Lingenfelter 600HP supercharged vette (with the GM 3/36 warranty), what do you think of that idea for 2005???
