I'll post this so Kodiak does not get in trouble with GM ...;)  

Toyota to announce new Camry Today :

Toyota is to introduce the completely redesigned 2012 Camry on Tuesday, August 23, 2011 beginning at 1:00 pm/ET.

This first-of=its-kind web cast reveal for Toyota, live from Hollywood, and a visit to the Camry plant in Georgetown, KY. to view the first vehicle coming off the assembly line.

 In addition, a special NASCAR-related announcement will be made as part of the program. ... ( What TOY is leaving the Sport ;)...

Toyota is engaging the public in this unique event by offering the opportunity to view the program live on Toyota.com and, following the web cast, Bob Carter will be hosting a Tweet Chat via Twitter at 4:00 pm/ET.(Toyota)

Times have changed ;) .... I remember as a kid back in the 60's, ... Showroom having Brown paper or soap windows so you could not see inside them, so you could not see the New Models... Showrooms having the New Models with sheets over them .... till the big day ....

Don't forget all the cars on the car carriers covered so you couldn't see them as they rolled down the highways.

In other PR / BS ... NASCAR going back to the Stone-age ....

The GEICO Caveman will be honored as the Grand Marshal of a NASCAR CUP race, and by chance the race happens to be the GEICO 400 at Chicagoland Speedway on September 18, where the Caveman will officially start the 2011 Chase for the NASCAR Cup. ...

As Grand Marshal, the Caveman will utter the most famous words in motorsports when he instructs the drivers, "Gentlemen, start your engines." ... Track officials are hopeful the special occasion goes off without a hitch, with one representative noting that "it's so easy a Caveman can do it." .... LOL

Truck series driver Shane Sieg has been suspended for violating NASCAR's drug policy. Sieg is the second diver suspended under the policy, the first being of course Jeremy Meth-field.

Don't forget the biggie: Tim Richmond

Granted that was before the "comprehensive" policy we have now. I am just glad NASCAR is so upfront with what drugs are on their banned substance list...

But once the cars came out, you could go around and pick up a model of the car.

I fail to see, anymore, what significance any street model announcement has on the NASCAR Circus except for the decal makers. The common templates for the COT have genericized the cars to the point there is no significance in this announcement.

22GA, you want to go nuts figuring out the meaning of model names? I played a little mental game over the weekend on the interstate. The KIA is by far the most ridiculous names

According to Kia Motors, the name .. KIA ..
derives from the Sino-Korean words ki "to come out" and a which stands for Asia, it is roughly translated as "arise or come up out of Asia" or "rising out of Asia" ...

please do not ask why it is not .... KIK or "rising out of Korea" ...

The name "CAMRY" is an Anglicized phonetic transcription of the Japanese word kanmuri, meaning "CROWN " ....
