General Motors - Olympic Sponsor With 4,600 Vehicles In Vancouver

General Motors supplied 4,600 vehicles for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver and you see them everywhere frequently. The Chevy Traverse along with the Tahoe, Yukon, Suburban and their hybrid and Flex-fuel versions are driving VIPs, Olympians and their families day and night. The above photo was taken at 11pm. on Georgia Street in downtown Vancouver. No hospitality tents just the vehicles for GM's role. The weather is spectacular - clear, sunny and too warm for some venues.

The hockey arena, home of the Vancouver Canucks was known for years as GM Place, not now.
