Looks like a ford lightning... I guess bugly is in the eye of the beholder, cuz that doesn't look much like a TRUCK to me...
I wonder how many of us that remember what SS, cowl Induction, Malibu, etc. meant are still around?

Yea....even though I'm an old school GM fan I tend to think "WTF" at some of the new GM stuff. Yes that truck from the front sure resembles the ford mentioned above. Anyone notice the but ugly front bumper on the new GM pickups?
GM needs to wake up. I don't think they even look at the completion to see what is selling or what the market is looking for. In my view a truck is a truck....not some half breed Cadillac with a bed on it.
When the imports start with the 1 ton and 3/4 ton work trucks.... GM and Ford may have to go back to the drawing board or get serious one way or the other.
I also think there is to much "copying" one another's design between Ford and GM. Not much of a Dodge / Chrysler fan myself so I don't even consider their products, other than I like their 3/4 pickup...or I should say I like the Cummins diesel and drive train, outside of that Dodge and Chrysler can keep their stuff.
Guess I'll hang on to my old 92K1500 to haul junk around and get off in the mud every now and then.
I think the "big three" are going to get consumed by their labor costs and their retirement benefits. ----------- Elbert snipped-for-privacy@me.com

I have a client with a '69 Camaro SS - original rims.
I know, and I can't imagine an HHR being an SS as much as I can't imagine my AV or a Hummer being an SS.
:P

Me for one. This is where I went to work after I got tired of chasing squeeks and rattles for warranty time:
