I should have given context:
In Canada we had Chev/Olds/sometimes Cadillac dealers and Pontiac/Buick/GMC. GMC trucks in Canada were usually close in sales to the Chev numbers. The dealerships were often close together in the same small town --now we have Chev/Buick/GMC and how Cadillac lands is anyone's guess.
GMC here were Chev in disguise decades before that happened in USA.
GMC here has long been marketed as the working persons basic work truck... and the super snazzy Denali of recent decades.
Being an old school GMC fan I generally think GMC looks better.
It's why I find it frustrating that for years now the auto media has been dismissing the Chrysler Charger (etc.) platform cars as being an "old platform" as a condemnation.
If the existing platform sells and you aren't going to make actual improvements in a new platform (most platform changes just obsolete parts --the discernable differences to the average consumer are not there) why not take the cost-savings with the benefit to your customers of parts availability?
I hadn't read it and it was a bit of a search. Not all your stuff is flagged the same way here --in fact it was the link you embedded at the front of the early articles yourself that got me to the "Adrian Clarke" list rather than the "Vision Thing" list.
On the bright side I got to read a few Vision Things I hadn't seen.
Here's the thing though, the Challenger article has the Vision thing tag applied to the lead photo. It just isn't sorted there.
So I have two suggestions for Hagerty to do to your stuff:
1. Every Adrian article is a "Vision Thing" and should show up under that tag.
2. Please number each entry... #1 being the oldest (then I would have found the one you sent me to with 2 clicks.
Yeah look at Canada with a federal system designed for two parties that has been a mess for decades. Only two parties have ever actually been elected for generations... but we have these regional fractures and similar parties that overlap platforms. By the time you factor in voter turnout and votes for that candidate we have many, many representatives with a small % of support speaking for us.
If our parliament (congress) was even partially proportionally represented we'd probably get much higher turnout as every vote could matter (depending on the system). But as-is --we'd likely be better off with less choices.
The old computer comment is pertinent to something I read about today:
google chrome flex is a new free operating system designed to make old computers into Chromebooks (functionally speaking). My understanding is it is basically a repackaged and improved version of the cloudready tool.
For those that get Star Trek references... google is the Borg looking to assimilate all.
The part I find interesting is that for ages the computer market has been all about obsolete as soon as possible -this is something else on several levels.
Might help some of the forum users here with older comps that are letting them down? I know my not-very-old laptop here is now unsupported by its maker.
My experience with chromebooks is they are a very streamlined computer experience --so beware if that doesn't suit your usage.
My IBM R400 Thinkpad ( build date 2009-09-09) is my laptop. I don't have any plans to replace it. Nor do I have any plans to "update" its MS windows to Win8, 10, or 11. It is about time to update its Linux side.
