Stopping by the local Chevrolet Dealership as a teenager in the late 90's was always a lot of fun. I distinctly remember strolling through the models on display, dreaming and drooling over the Corvette Grand Sport and S-10 ZR2. As I climbed through the display vehicles I also was quite guilty of grabbing the dealer model information books by the armload to obsessively read over later at home.

Today, these dealership model information books seem like relics of the past. I haven't looked at one in years but imagine my surprise to find out they still get printed to help consumers make buying decisions on the show room floor. Chevrolet also, naturally, publishes them online in digital format.

As you "flip" through the book and read the details, it seems like all of the information is standard fare and widely known. But it turns out we can find a nice little new nugget of information about the all new ZR2 buried in the details.

The footnote for the colors page reads "Deepwood Green Metallic ...ZR2 Only". And that's how today we learned that the ZR2's unique shade of green has a name and you'll be able to buy it for yourself. Ahh, brings back old memories.

I have the dealer catalog for every car I ever owned (including a 1969 Fury) except one ('79 Supra). I still look at them sometimes.

It needs at least a 4.3 in it. It would be at another level if a turbo 4.3 could be had.

Would LOVE to see one with a 5.3 like they put in the previous Colorado. With that combo, you'd have a real sport truck!!

Unfortunately for me....The last couple vehicles have been sold with, "sorry don't have and literature on that" Another example of GM's Struggle, Dealer etc...Communication really the customer should not have to do any of that.

 

On this last 2016 GMC Sierra I had to call the Dealer the next day and Inquire where is the Owners manual? They couldn't believe it or could I.......

You and me both buddy. I still have a couple crates of those hand outs. Such cars as the great Chevy Corsica, etc.
