another LT1? weird. I sure did like the 5.7 liter LT1 from the 1990s vettes & z28s... I suppose that will be the "old LT1" now that we have a nice new LT1.

Time to update the brand?
"General Motors will explore freshening Buick's famous tri-shield logo, a top executive said.
Redesigning a brand logo is an extremely sensitive process that can send enthusiasts and longtime customers into a frenzy. But Buick has been repositioning itself as an attractive choice for younger affluent consumers."

This will be interesting.
Is there anything actually wrong with the trishield now used? It has evolved to an all chrome insignia now. Would a different insignia keep me from buying a car? I was behind a Mercedes today with no insignia, no model marque on the trunk. The trunk was held down by two straps symetrically spaced from the top edge down under the rollunder of the bumper. It was odd to see NOTHING on the vehicle trunk. Maybe that's what Buick needs--an extreme minimum.
