    I have alwais thought that GMC stood for General Motors Corporation.

    I was talking to a friend yesterday and he thinks it stand for General Motors Canada.

    It would be great if somebody could tell me what is right.

    Haha, interesting replies but no one knows the real answer so far...

    At first I was thinking Grabowsky Motor Vehicle Company but I guess the GMC logo wasnt used until GM owned it.

    GMC History

    [ QUOTE ]
    During 1908, General Motors founder William C. Durant began buying up Rapid's stock and the company soon found itself being represented by GM's sales force. Durant's corporation was growing quickly and brought Rapid fully under the corporate umbrella in 1909--the year that a Rapid truck made headlines by climbing to the top of Pikes Peak. The GMC logo--which stands for General Motors Truck Co.--was first seen on trucks in 1911.

    I heard lately that instead of running seperate GMC plants, now GM badges every 10th or so Chevy as GMC on the line... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif But if ya buy a GMC the Chevy dealer will not do warranty work on it /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
