A bit of trivia: In a rather rare set of circumstances, a certain GM
junior exec who (shall not be named by me) succeeded in developing this project to fulfill some sort of personal ego trip just prior to retirement. It's amazing that the non-approved project was actually completed skunkworks style. After press leakage and other manipulations to make the car public, it was quite late for GM
to make the car "disappear".
The side view shown above doesn't do the Blackhawk justice, however, that's not to say it's really successful, especially when critiqued from a design point of view. Nonetheless, the public reception (and that of some mag-rag 'experts') was positive in general and the company sent the vehicle on the show circuit, even emblazoning a custom enclosed transporter with zoomy Blackhawk graphics.
I wasn't aware that the car still exsisted, but then again, I'm not up on the genre of movies mentioned. Suffice it to say, it will probably be a cold day in hell before the next time an individual is able to sneak through the dollars for such a 'private' effort @ GM
without 'generally accepted accounting methods' being in place. Regards..Jack
