Took a trip down to the Cleveland Auto Show today. Main highlight was the new Silverado/Sierra. A pre-production model was on display, quite pretty. I mentioned to the guy that I was an enthusiast quite active on a website with 25k devoted GM owners....he ended up letting me climb up on the platform and get into the truck, which was one of the few vehicles Joe Schmo wasn't allowed to crawl into.
Unfortunately, my camera is absolute crap and the photos didn't turn out for sh!t, can't really provide any better images than the press releases have already shown. I will try to get a little detailed review up in the next few days.....
That being said, if you can accept change, you will most likely be a fan of the NNNBS. If you think the 2007.5+ isn't utilitarian enough and has build quality issues, too much plastic, etc. (you know the typical arguments), you will hate the new guy. If I don't get to prepping a review, feel free to hit me up with any questions you have, I spent about 45 minutes evaluating the cosmetics and functionality of the truck so I hope I can answer...
The guy also knew the performance specs on the engines but wouldn't reveal.....they're keeping seriously tight lipped about the new capabilities for a few more months is my guess, trying to sell off the 2013's I gues....

So I was driving home from work today after staying a few hours extra to catch up on the back log....all and all had been a great day. Came to a stop light and was first in line, when the guy behind me floors it to cut to the left and make a green arrow. Smacks the hell out of the rear bumper.
I pull over and he promptly follows in his brand new ride - a 1997ish Buick Skylark with obscured most likely expired temporary tags. Out pops a hood rat and I immediately knew I had trouble. For some reason, the goodness of my heart thought "don't let the bigotry of your upbringing get in the way here, give him the benefit of the doubt"....mistake. He proceeds to say how it's his 'girls' ride and how I could never tell what damage he had actually done. My ride had been perfect, now the taillight was cracked, the bumper was bent, and there was a slight crease in the tailgate.
All I said was "Do you have insurance". He says "Nah man" and I could see panic in his eyes. I don't carry and didn't really feel like testing this guys defenses, so I reached for my phone to call the cops. He immediately took off running towards his car, hopped in, and sped off. Never got a plate #.
Pics will follow, just thanking God I wasn't hurt and the guy did not try anything stupid. Had he, I might have become Cpt. Big Dick (as I'm oft known to do) and decided to do something I myself would regret. Just need to vent.....once again the responsible member of society has been f*cked over by the low-life scum of the city. Shouldn't be too hard to fix, and the insurance will cover...
