GM is looking for your help to write the history of its often brilliant, occasionally abysmal, and always fascinating 100-year history of auto manufacturing.

Proving that it is very to-the-minute on the complexities and nuances of 21st century information flow, it is imploring anybody with a cool GM-related story to hop on the World Wide Interweb and register their e-mail at

By clicking into the Wiki tab at the top of the gmnext page, users will then be able to post pictures, share stories, and read what the millions of people affected or inspired by General Motors and its products have to say about the automotive giant and its (shrinking) portfolio of auto divisions.

From the folks who brought you the starter motor (Cadillac), one of the first viable, mass-produced front wheel drive cars ('66 Olds Toronado), arguably institutionalized the small-block OHV V-8, and also brought to market the warped-head Chevy Vega and disastrous Olds 350 diesel, this site should be a fascinatingly bipolar romp through decades of delight and disaster.
