The good news is that the ambulance didn’t have to take him off the mountain. He tumbled his car all the way down into the valley.
Are we sure that the Blackwing engine isn’t carrying on the legacy of the Northstar, but GM recognized the idiosyncrasy earlier and decided to pause further vehicle applications until/ they figure things out?
