Well, was coming back from visiting son two Sundays ago and I went deer hunting with my 2016 SiIverado 2500 High Country and the deer won(10 pointer Blue Ridge acorn raised, bigger than any I have ever been able to get with a rifle).So I pulled the bumper off the front wheels with a Peavy Hook I had in the bed and limped home, and brought to the body shop next day.I am very happy I didn't drive my Camaro like I had planned. I called the body shop Friday to check on progress of replacing the damage and was informed due to stoke at GM parts were not readily available. I trust these guys, I just wanted to gt the word out there , watch out for deer until the strike is over!

Due to the UAW GM Strike, there is a delay receiving parts for all GM dealers across the United States. Some of GM suppliers have laid off employees and closed shops here in Michigan. Its hurting other oem's as well. Lear Seating for one. All the parts suppliers are "just in time" operation meaning they don't make the parts till GM accepts the order for production, no stock piling and its delivered to the assm plant just in time for the build.

I know a salesman and he says they have not got any vehicles either, the truck drivers (teamsters) are in solidarity.

Sorry for your loss; I can confirm we are having a bumper crop of acorns.

I saw a chipmonk out front yesterday rolling around in them like Scrooge McDuck.

Thanks Keith, my Pop had a place up at Houlton Lake (Tip Up Town) before he passed away. Lots of oak trees and acorns up there. I love your old truck story, I have a 1963 C-10. I'm passing it on to my son when I leave here. I am in the process of a frame off restoration at present. I have all the dealership papers, it cost about 1700 new! I love the new Chevy commercials about all the people who switched, I never had to!

I need a new shift cable for my 04 z71. Not till the strike is over. Rigged it with a hose clamp! Not about to buy a Dorman lookalike.

Good news, the body shop was able to source all the parts from other Chevy dealerships and my truck should be complete by Friday. I hope so, I had to go to Wilmington, NC on the weekend for a wedding and my 2012 Camaro tipped 17K. It was however fun riding with the top down in 85 degree plus weather at the beach! Got back to the Blue Ridge yesterday after noon it was 55

BULLDOG ON STRIKE NOW BUT THE CO I WORK FOR HAS 7 NEW 1'S ALREADY SITTING AT THE DEALERS.

The Mack Truck strike follows the decision by 46,000 General Motors workers to go on strike, a labor dispute that's now in its fourth week and is projected to have longer-term ramifications for the auto industry and organized labor. GM is losing an estimated $450 million a week, and the strike could ripple through the economy.
