Yesterday night, General Motors made sure to keep everybody as excited about the new Corvette Stingray as the people involved in the project were. The countdown on Youtube looked like we were about to send somebody to Mars, but it worked: even I stayed up here in Budapest (what's 7:00 pm for you is 1:00 am for me) to watch the car being unveiled.

(Warning: it gets NSFW Below)

What I saw was a few blokes standing next to a rather attractive red car:

What I would expect from the premier of a V8 powered plastic car looks more like this:

It was in October 1971 when TVR decided (again) to shake things up a bit. They arrived at the British Motor Show with a V8 Tuscan, a Tasmin 280i powered by a Cologne V6 (which you might get as it was the last TVR that made it to the States), and a good old Vixen with its Kent four banger. They also brought two naked glamour models.

Helen Jones (36-24-36) made it to the cover of Parade Magazine after this performance, while Susan Shaw (35-24-35) reportedly was a bit terrified by all those people surrounding them while posing at Earls Court. Later on, she forgot about her shyness to become the cover girl of Penthouse and Girl Illustrated under the fake name of Karen McCook. She also met F1 Champion James Hunt for a brief advertising (and who knows what else) session.

BoxerFanatic, troublesome iconoclast.

Stooping pretty low. I don't need this in my automotive news and opinion.

Comments that are NSFW are one thing, and reflect on the commenter, rather than the site, management, and staff.

Headline NSFW pictures as official produced articles to get click counts is another, and does reflect badly.

If this continues, I, and likely others will have to discontinue our intermittent viewing of this website during work hours, while we wait for work tasks to complete.

If I choose another site during the day, I am more likely to frequent the same site in the evening. I don't think my family members would approve of seeing this either. It isn't necessary.

And frankly it isn't professional for this site or family of sites. Low class.
