New job in Detroit and wanna know what the scene is like!

Hello all! I just accepted an offer for my dream job and will be working as an Creative Automotive Designer for GM in August!

I'll be bringing my '85 G3 and '57 DKW Hummel with me and wanna know if I have MA friends I can count on in the Motor City! I know nothing/no one there, so I'll for sure need help/suggestions with cool places to go, where to live, etc.

Anyways, thanks guys! I've always been able to count on you!

Theres all these people. A member of the Swoops just left Atlanta a few months ago to go work for Ford actually. You guys can meet in a parking lot and fight I guess.

Re: New job in Detroit and wanna know what the scene is like!

I start Aug 18, so probably a week or two before then!

I'm going to be doing RAGBRAI (Bicycle ride across the state of Iowa) the last week of July with my uncle and will probably move once I get back

That Velodrome looks absolutely crazy and amazing!

Re: New job in Detroit and wanna know what the scene is like!

The Velodrome is pretty awesome. Welcome to Detroit. You'll love it.

Overpriced Parts /

So happy for you and your new job. Please design a car that has rollup windows, no video screens/onstar, no power locks, no computer except for fuel injection, no excessive wiring/bugs, no check engine light and all maintenance able to be done by the owner.

Besides power steering and power brakes only a radio and air-conditioning is needed nothing else no Idrive, no 147 speaker stereo, no keyless entry and no fluff.

Price e'm good and they will sell like hot cakes.

Re: New job in Detroit and wanna know what the scene is like!

^ I agree with Roff except bring back the carburetor. If we have to have fuel injection use a mechanical type like Pontiac used in '58 and Chevy used on the '62 Vette. Also how about a metal dash that doesn't get all warped and cracked. Your motto should be, More metal less plastic.

No they still would need fuel injection for government fuel economy, emissions regulations and mandatory airbags but yeah more metal less plastic and all serviceable by the consumer. fuel economy will go up with no plastic and all that consumer electronic garbage that you don't need in a car.

Video screens, electric seat control motors, electric heaters in every seat and who wants to be tracked by the government with OnStar. Come on who needs all that crap.

I cannot count how many times I've seen a newer Cadillac or luxury car at the drive through window that cannot rolldown their window and the person has to open the car door to pay/get good because all the electrics are fried in the car. Your talking a newer mint car that has multiple electrical problems

Ken Roff You want a car that uses no power accessories, crank windows, cloth seats.... May I introduce you to the 1994 Toyota Corolla, White. OBDII *UN* compliant.

Also, those caddies with busted window regulators/motors, probably ain't new, probably a hoodrat hooptie who's power windows wore out from all that up and down action from all them drive by's in da hood. Ya hurd dawg?

It's kind of like this. (edited)
