Ford, GM Open Project Proposals for Fiesta, Camaro, Pontiac G8


The Pontiac G8 is one the vehicles offered in GM's 2009 SEMA Show project-vehicle lineup.

Ford and General Motors encourage manufacturers, designers and restylers to participate in two new unique project-vehicle programs.

GM is now accepting proposals for 2009 project vehicles, including those for display consideration at the 2009 SEMA Show. GM's 2009 SEMA Show strategy will focus on passenger-car performance accessories and some pickups with full accessory programs from the accessories market.

Key vehicles for consideration include the Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac G8 and GMC Sierra. Other GM product lines will be available in limited quantities within the scope of this program. Act quickly, as early proposals will be given preferential consideration. Proposals are due no later than May 1, and approved projects must be completed by October 16.

The Fiesta is Ford's best-selling car in Europe. Also on sale in China, Australia and South Africa, the Fiesta is bound for North America early next year.

In another unique project-vehicle opportunity, Ford is offering a first crack at its re-introduced 2010 Fiesta. Long popular in Europe, the Fiesta makes its return to North America. Ford is encouraging project-car builders to take a pre-production Fiesta for one year to create and promote demand for accessories and specialty equipment.
