So GM and Rick Wagoner aren’t “braindead” after all, as we might have suspected after his 60 Minutes appearance.

GM is going to build the new Camaro after all. I’ll give credit to Wagoner for having a sense of humor about it in his announcement:

“As evidence that we’re not completely brain-dead, GM will build the Chevy Camaro.”

But, GM *is* very slow. It took from April to August to make a “Braindead” decision. Not very good cycle time on the decision making. Not very nimble, eh? Sweet car, slow process to get there.

Here is another blog’s take on the slowness.
