  • It's a very bad April Fool's Day joke that a car magazine published, and is now retracting because people are losing their minds over it.

  • April Fools joke. The way he has been ordering Companies around I can see how many believed it.

  • Even Obama isn't a big enough rock star to control NASCAR.

  • LOL... mamkirs, it's all good. I just went and looked at the Hyundai Veracruz Crossover last weekend. NICE Car... I have bought GM since I was 18, so looking outside GM was entirely new experience for me :)

    Anyone who read it in any of the newspapers and magazines that picked the story off the wire. The problem was a whole bunch of OTHER outlets printed it and didn't notice the disclaimer. They thought they were picking up a huge breaking scoop and barely read it before they passed it on.
