Yeah I've been seeing them more and more as well. I live a couple of miles from the GM tech center in Warren MI. The usually let the higher ups therethe new cars out and drive them for a month or so. They all have manufacturer plates. Been snowing to much up here to get a comparison on how they handle againt a redline though. But I'll keep trying.
Yeah this was a young guy driving it. If the girl and I weren't off to somewhere I would have mad a U turn and went and talked to him. He was checking out the redline jsut as much as me checking out the SS.
i saw a lumina SS and a cobalt ss in warren (where i am from) my mom just retired from the Tech center, and when i was young and it was take your son/daughter to work day, we got to see some cool shit. It's wierd around here, we see cars months if not a full year before they are released. Me and my buddy talked to a few guys who were engineers for GM and they were test driving a new 7 speed yes 7speed corvette with a turbo. Its also sort of neat to see the mules on the highway and Car and Driver is based about a mile from my apartment, so we get the good shit early! I'll carry my digi cam to see if i can get any pics of the cobalt SS.
