Edmunds reports: Bob Lutz, the man with the Midas touch. What's up with Edmunds pouring the love on GM VP Bob Lutz? It's not like he's Alison*. Or Claire. We absolutely, positively, without-a-doubtly will not ever, no never, not once pour any love towards Mr. Lutz until he uses his "Madas touch" on the most hideous, foul, bloated car that GM makes.
Yes, the Monte Carlo. It's ugly.
If it's true that Mr. Lutz was the sole person behind the design of the Solstice and Sky, then he can open a can of whoop-ass on the Monte Carlo. The Monte Carlo is ugly, you see. It doesn't even have a single redeeming quality. None. Because it's so ugly.
Huh, from that one angle, the Monte Carlo doesn't look totally like a pig. How's this for annoying? In our defense, GM had only three snaps of the '07 Monte Carlo SS and none of the plain ol' Monte Carlo. Also in our defense, we have no taste.
*Plaid and overalls! How are we supposed to control ourselves?
