What's Wrong With This Picture: The Actual Retail Price of the Showcase Is . . . Edition
August 2nd, 2009 9:21 AM Share
I have the day off today, so I was watching The Price is Right.
This Impala LS appeared at the end of a NASCAR-themed showcase presentation. Preceding the Impala were a Nintendo Wii racing game, a Craftsman tool chest and set, and a trip to the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis.
Not that I wouldn’t have minded winning all of that. But an SS would have made more sense, IHMO.
For reasons I can’t fully explain, I often think of the SS when I watch “The Price Is Right.”
P.S. I’m Jewish so I can say that.

Dave M: "You mean there’s actual history on HC in between ice road trucking, lumbering, testing old military gear, and 23 minutes of commercials every hour? No-friggin’-way!" And the "Learning" Channel - tales of woe about 800-pound people getting bariatric surgery...That'll LEARN ya.
God what a rental fleet queen... I have noticed.. the vehicles that any TV show (The Price Is Right) gets.. is any base / basic model, large / 5 pass domestic automaker's garbage. A lineup of vehicles so poor / generic / genetics that people really don't follow. And.. The SS Impala that got canned, really isn't much different from this queen, at all in its last model year. I think the tires were a bit bigger.. but that was it. I've seen silver / primer color versions of these things.. with their demographic driver.. and its hideous. There really isn't any LOVE for a SS Impala. SO basically.. The car, its color, its trim, the TV show that its on, really caters to its buyer. Which... is actually pretty sad. Then again.. is the whole discussion about Malibu v Impala.
