LOL, good point and I think lemko, made a great counter punch in his last point !!!!
Good Job, lemko !!!!
$500K to burn in not any order as of December 31, 2007
#1 Cadillac STS AWD 2008' loaded V8 performance $65K minus GM employee discount
#2 2009' Cadillac CTS-V loaded $60K ???? minus GM employee discount
#3 Saab 9-3 Black Turbo XWD w/ e-LSD loaded $45K ???? minus GM discount
#4 2009' Lincoln MKS AWD loaded $50K
#5 2009' Corvette ZR-1 $100K
#6 2008' Cadillac Escalade Platinum SUV $74K minus GM discount
#7 2008' GMC Sierra Denali loaded $48K minus GM discount
#8 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 HD 3/4 Ton Pick-Up $53K minus GM discount
Add that up if my math is correct it would total to $495,000 not including around $40-50K in GM employee discounts and any incentives which would be used for gas and insurance, and maybe some rear tires !!!!

How come you don't get a discount on the ZR-1?

We only get discounts on certain Corvettes. When the CTS-V first came out we couldn't get the GM, discount for like 3 or 4 months because I was thinking about buying one.
The XLR is excluded also.

If you're buying half a million dollars of GM cars, I think the finance goons can give you some fan service.

One thing is for sure, if you think GM makes better looking cars than the German or Japanese manufacturers, we never would have gotten into a fight over the same girl in my single days.
Guess I never went for the Anna Nicole Smith look, with those big chrome ta-ta's.
