Cute Little Cars

The best chocolate GM has to offer

While most in our group appreciated the desserts offered by the Coach Insignia Restaurant last weekend, I appreciated the name, and its position atop the GM World Headquarters. I was kind of surprised at the number of people in our group who commented things like "oh, look at all the cute little cars on the chocolate!"

Cars? Well, the first problem there is that it's not a car - it's a stagecoach. The "Coach" insignia. Get it?

The Coach Insignia is exactly that - the insignia of a coach. The Fisher Body Company began by building stagecoaches and eventually started supplying car bodies (primarily Cadillacs) to GM in the early 1900's. The insignia indicated that these were the very best General Motors offered.

I still remember our 1981 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, with its "Body by Fisher" Coach Insignia on the door sills, indicating it was one of GM's best.

Fisher didn't really make these little chocolate desserts, but if you ask my wife Suz, she'll say the chocolate was the best!

That is some stylish looking food. And here's me thinking a cake with coaches all over it would have whistles and clipboards.

I can't help but laugh at every comment you make. You have an incredible ability to twist things - hopefully you will always twist things for the good of mankind.

RE: RAINY - I doubt that Martini, but it's good to have hopes. It's a great ability for comments, not so great with food preparation. Enough said.

As for the coaches, I'd be lucky if I even LOOK at the box before eating the chocolates. Let's be honest.. I may even have ate the box at the prices they were charging..
