I figured that since we were on the Black Widow theme. I didn't want to answer it right because I don't have any "snappy comebacks" for a question...

Actually, as a side attraction, anyone know where that phrase, "don't have a snappy comeback" came from ??? Not at all car related. Hint; comedian...

The phrase " don't have a snappy comeback" was first credited to a Neanderthal named Trog (who had just invented languages three days before), in response to fellow cavemate Ugg's, (who had invented fire that morning), little joke of setting fire to Trog's Saber Toothed Tiger skin underpants. Extinguishing the flaming underwear by sitting in a puddle ( which Trog had discovered just hours before) Trog uttered that famous retort. Being the funnyman Ugg was , he later went to HollyRock and became a headliner.

Well then the only other Lion emblem I can think of is a Holden. You got one in your shop? Is there paddle in the back seat?

You're going to have to work harder than that, Holden what? I don't have a Holden in the shop, but I had something that a Holden bumper and grille fits on there.

Not even close to the answer I was looking for, but I'll give you credit for a VERY active imagination...

Gimmie a break! I was doing pretty good remembering Holden!
It's either a Holden Kangaroo or a UTE.

Holden has been in the news last month. GM is dropping them.

That'll leave GM in a silly position - they went to a new "Chevrolet SS" which is nothing more than a re-badged Holden (just as the "GTO" was), and the new Police Special is also just a disguised Holden.

If they drop the Holden, then what?

The only Police cars available in the US will be the Charger and the profit from every sale of THOSE goes to the gov't of Italy - the major shareholder in Fix It Again Tony

I'm going to give this one to you, it's the GTO.

It's your floor.
