USATODAY: General Motors: 'We make vehichles other than the Solstice'

Link to USATODAY article


WILMINGTON, De. (AP) — In a shocking announcement made earlier this morning by Chairman and CEO of GM North America, G. Richard Wagoner Jr., General Motors claims to make vehicles other than the highly aclaimed Pontiac Solstice.

"You aren't serious," Wagoner said in regards to the public's seemingly unaware attitude towards 'other' phantom GM models. "General Motors was founded in 1897. What the hell do you think we've been doing up until now?"

GM's president added that he was appalled that anyone could fail to remember such trend-setting vehichles as the Chevorlet Corvette, Hummer, Pontiac GTO, or Pontiac Aztek. "We at GM have never claimed responsibility of said 'Aztek,'" he added.

Authorities in and around General Motors have also agreed to these claims that GM produces other models, and some have even gone as far to say GM has being at it for "some time now."

Further third-party research actually appears to confirm these claims. When accessing the Kelly Blue Book online (www.kbb.com) and GM is chosen from a drop-down, there are indeed other models listed beyond "Solstice."

Bob Lutz, GM Vice President and catalyst to the creation of the Pontiac Solstice, refused to comment on these remarks.

Over at www.solsticeforum.com the thoughts are mixed. One user, Solitud, said "What? GM makes other cars? Not just the Solstice???" while another user, Gizmo2004, said "Yhaeeh we gone and done alls gooder on the marisol 'cause the hotdog hamster done and gone it malgoodun!" The Associated Press declined interpretation. The comment is believed to have been made for the sole purpose of raising post count.

Oh no, Giz ... you've done it now! I forsee a plethora of these threads popping up now as your nominees start campaigning. Might need to be a new joke forum to accomodate them down the road.

Eh, that wasn't the reason I did it. But of course, I think this is a mighty tasteful joke.

I can vouch for GM's claim. They in fact DO build other cars.

Their Cadillac Division builds the CTS-V.

Their Chevy Division builds the Corvette.

Their Pontiac Division builds the Soltice and RUMOR has it, a TGO or something like that.

So in fact, GM builds 3 cars other than the Solstice. With another rumored car coming from yet another new Division called Saturn. ;)
