Chevy TAR? Looks like a Malibu to me...

I took this picture on the road last week:


What's up with that? Does anyone know?

It reminds me of the Hyundai Tiburon that's sold as a "Tuscani" in other markets and some people rebadge their Tiburon with those badges...


I have to admit, that is a nice looking badge.

Do you see the window covers?
They appear aftermarket.

Also, Chevy would only be releasing new model cars with low displacement engines in today's market. With that assumption, the exhaust pipe/muffler looks way to big for a 4 cylinder engine.

I think you snapped a pick of a car owner with a sense of humor.

The badge on the right, which is difficult to read due to glare in the photo, says "LS V6". The exhaust looks like a stock GM exhaust to me.

That is certainly possible...maybe he's trying to cause people like me to ask questions like this.
