Check Out The Seat IBZ Concept!

Seat IBZ Concept

When you think about concept cars – they usually look incredible, feel great and then when they come out … they look like crap and no one really wants to buy them.  That is not the case with the Seat IBZ Concept.  This car is absolutely perfect in every way and it actually just showed itself at the Frankfurt Motor Show! 

The Seat IBZ Concept actually adds a bit of Alfa-worthy beauty to it and while to some people, the clean and crisp lines do not make a difference … to me, they do.  I want my car to be clean and crisp – fresh and awesome and that is exactly what the Seat IBZ Concept.

This car definitely does not look like the station wagons that I remember way back in the day – that’s for sure!

The Ford Wixom Plant Gets A Makeover!

wixom_7429Finally, finally, Ford is going to do something with their abandon plant in Wixom, Michigan and they are going to lease it out.  The factory actually opened way back in ’57 during the glory years of Ford and the American automotive industry and it actually encompasses about 4.7 million square-feet … about 320 acres.  However, it has been abandon for years and now – finally, the lease is renewed and Ford has come up with a plan.

Two companies are actually going to invest in the former Ford plant and they are going to turn it into a renewable energy park.  The plant is going to go through a $725 million dollar renovation and it is actually going to belong to Clairvoyant Energy of Santa Barbara, CA.  Basically – they are relocating their headquarter to Michigan and they are going to produce solar panels.

This is fantastic news for my home state, Michigan and I think that this is going to be fantastic for the environment!

2011 Chevrolet Cruze: GM Needs To Get Used To Selling Them!

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

You know – you know that GM is known for their trucks.  You probably have owned one of their trucks in the past right?  I know that I have, however – the face of GM has changed and they are switching gears and their thinking and they certainly do not want to be known as the truck-maker any longer.  Instead, they want to be known as a company that can produce and actually sell some of the most compact and beautiful cars in the world.

At least that was the message that was sent to the dealerships – not specifically, but in so many words.  They should get used to selling the smaller-scale cars and they should like it.  Things like the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze are going to be popping up everywhere in the GM world and they are just going to have to get used to it.

To me?  The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze is a fantastic car and I certainly hope that GM switches their gears!
