      they must have confused a HELL of a lot of GM employees then. because its not just the general public...
      also, how did they ever get the car over to the Nurburg Ring?(sp is way off) because i remember seeing numerous photos from there as well. it wasnt just in detroit.
      and this is what gets you killed.

      Hell, they probably just used photochop or a bluescreen. Photographically, you can be wherever you want to be, whenever you want to be there. I trust nothing of what I see on the internet, and about 1/5 of what I read.
      Do you enjoy old cars and long-winded stories about them? If your answer is "yes", then you might enjoy my blogpage. Try it here: http://vwlarry.blogspot.com . Leave a comment, too; I love feedback! Thanx for reading.

      What are you talking about?
      This has nothing to do with all those spy shots we've seen of the real Blue Devil - this is a bunch of enthusiasts making their own fake and seeing what the public's reaction would be.
      An interesting social experiment, if you will.

      they make it seem like they made the ONLY SR, which thusly makes the entire production of it false.
      this seems like an Ego experiment...
      hmm... wonder if i could make a Tahoe SS out of my dads Tahoe, and drive it around detroit...

      I am pretty sure those photos we saw were local to the Detroit metro area. We do have terrain around here, provided you are willing to leave the city.

      Those photos don't have Manufacturer tags, which if it's not a production model is a big no-no. Should have noticed that the first time through...

      What I love are all the dipwads like Brenda Priddy that would have paid money for these spy shots.

      Damn.......well I guess that explains why the hood scoop was so out of wack.
      I have to admit the thought of it being a complete fake never crossed my mind.
