I can't believe that you posted this one, may I ask where you got this picture? I know the car and where it came from but I haven't been in that building for months and don't know if it's there or did it get moved?
Anyway, that is the Retro Vette that Gohard was talking about and he doesn't believe that it will ever be made for the public....

Hey Buddy, How are you?
I've been working real hard at trying not to work.
Retiring this week, but I get a retirement pass to go back to work any time that I want too. I'll be able to keep in touch once in awhile, what about you, what have you been doing? How did Gohard do on the horsepower figures, He was 3HP off, not to shabby, it quieted down some of his detractors I think. If not, doesn't matter, there is only a select few that 'he' talks to now. He hasn't done that in quite a while though, been real busy. You?...............bob.

Current crash testing wouldn't allow that front end to make it into a production car. It will be nice in the movie, never on the dealer lot, though.

Default By the way........

Chip Foose didn't paint the Retro Vette, GM did. Same car that was there over a year ago, and same exact color.

So Chip Foose built the movie cars? I have to believe GM Styling did the concept in house.

For those of you who use AOL there is a video today of a GM engineer taking you around the concept Stringray and discussing its lines. There is no implication that this will become a production car.
