what s wrong with this picture inexplicable immigration edition

Can you identify this vehicle? I couldn’t at first…

…but then I’ve never been to the Lights, Motors, Action! stunt show at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The show began at Euro Disney, but was imported to the Florida venue, apparently unchanged. Which means the vehicles used in the stunt show are Opel-branded. Look closely:

Call me crazy, but Florida strikes me as a particularly poor market for Opel product placement. And the cars aren’t even production models… couldn’t they at least have slapped some bowties on those bad boys? Leave it to GM to turn down the single easiest rebadging opportunity ever… the same year the Pontiac G5 came out. Oy!

  • Jeff S No it should be based on the violation and the fine on speeding should be based on how much above the speed limit the violator is going. Anything 5 mph are below should not be ticketed.
  • Lou_BC TTAC is once again light on details. Why let facts interfere with the news? "Wiklöf has a history of having a lead foot. He received a $106,000 (95,000 euros) fine in 2013 and a $68,000 (63,680 euros) citation in 2018, according to the newspaper.""Wiklöf controls 100 percent of the Wiklöf Holding company that runs over 20 businesses in the logistics, construction, helicopter services, real estate, trade, and tourism sectors.  According to its website, the company had a turnover the equivalent of $264 million (247 million euros) in 2020 and an operating profit of $11.7 million (11 million euros)." No sympathy for this dude.
  • Fahrvergnugen Internet says average age of cars in US is 12.5 years old. All of mine are older. Getting rid of emergency broadcasting is about as stupid as outlawing ICE.
  • Wheatridger The AM radio in my 2017 Ford PHEV works just fine, BTW.
  • KOKing This doesn't seem to make much sense, unless the intent is to replace the (ancient) 4Runner, as they're platform mates as it is, and both from a functional and market standpoint, the 4Runner and Prado seem to be the same thing tailored to the US vs ROW.
