Scorned property or negligent sponsor? You decide.

While perusing GM's 54 cancelled sponsorship and promotions contracts, we came across a couple that seemed curious. We don't know all of the details around #48 (the Chanler Inn at Cliff Walk) so we would never question the deal's merit, but we do know that if you're paying enough to get it waived in bankruptcy court you should presumably go ahead and wrap up "official vehicle of the beach butler" as well. As pointed out by one sharp-eyed reader, that's a Range Rover (Ford) in the driveway.

Key takeaway: never underestimate the beach butler ambush.
