Another year, another Thanksgiving is upon us. That means it’s time to round up what the GM Authority staff is thankful for after many happenings across the industry.
This year, we opened it up to be a little more broad as to what our staff could be thankful for, rather than just one particular vehicle. So, below, you will find our thoughts on this Thanksgiving. Feel free to talk to us in the comment section below but, most importantly, have a happy Thanksgiving from us, to you.
I’m thankful for GM’s investment into Cadillac, the future products, and associated expansion this will bring. By association, I’m also thankful that Cadillac has chosen RWD as its strategy (XT5 notwithstanding). The world needs more RWD cars!
I’m thankful for the cheap speed that comes from the 2.0-liter turbocharged Ecotec engines. But, more importantly, I’m thankful for my Saab.
Last year, I was thankful for my Pontiac G8 but, since then, I’ve swapped everything over to Holden VE Commodore. The questions, the intrigued looks and the comments make me incredibly thankful for the enthusiast community, because I have no problem explaining the car’s roots at nearly every fuel pump I find myself at. Furthermore, I’m also thankful some bright minds are scooping up VF Commodores in the form of Chevrolet SS.
I’m thankful for the small-block V8 and everything that encompasses it. More importantly, I’m thankful that jobs like this actually exist, that allow me to do what I love for a living. Finally, I’m thankful for the car enthusiast culture as a whole, and the influence they continue to bring to the table every year.
