Whether hand-me-down clothes or communal toys, families do a lot of sharing. The bigger the family the more sharing goes on, and over the years there have been few automotive families bigger than that of General Motors. Today there are some members who have passed away, and others who don’t get cards at the holidays, but there’s still a lot of names at the table. And, while they all have their own personalities and needs, they do frequently share a lot of what goes on under their skirts.
Last week I asked if you thought the Ford’s Fox body represented that company’s greatest serving platform design. This week I’d like you to take a stab at the General, although not literally, after all we’re all friends here. Over the years and decades perhaps no other auto maker has been so generous in sharing among its offspring and certain models are better known by their platform codes – A-bodies, F-cars, etc, than their individual models.
What I want to know is, which of those is the code for greatness? Which multi-brand GM platform do you think is the company’s all-time best?
