Ewwwww... at the Toyota dealership, saw a base model new Matrix in gray and a new green Corolla today in my travels. Not an auspicious start, but hey, it can only go up from here I guess.

Has anyone seen anything out of the ordinary yet this month?

Saw my second '08 Malibu on the road today, and it had an Enterprise sticker on it. I saw my first ever Saab 9-7X on the road.

Brand new Impreza STi, all black, very cool, with the wide-spoke wheels as opposed to the multi-spokers, which are ugly, imo. $36,000 MSRP!!! And the guy said it was "the base model". :o

The article in the new Road & Track has one with a price-as-tested at over $39k!! Reading the article, I was surprised how heavy the Sti and Evo have become..they aren't little lightweight AWD toys anymore---the Sti is over 3500lbs, the Evo over 3700...

An old man driving a pristine early 1980's Pontiac Parisienne that was a beautiful jade green color, factory fender skirts; it was gorgeous. I should have chased him down and demanded that he sell it to me!

Surprisingly, I saw an `08 Malibu LT (beige) at work the other day--looks beautiful. I saw also an Enclave (someone apparently bought one--I've seen it in the parking lot for 2 weeks now), and then last night on my way to my date, I saw a red `08 Malibu LT V6--again, absolutely beautiful. Really a stunner.

Saturn saleschick agrees... she set me up with that one, as we were on the test drive, she said "the base model wheel covers look..." she glanced over at me and I put the ball in the basket, "Pep Boys?" I finished. She said "That's good, yes."

Are those wheel covers the ones that appear on the Saturn website? They look :yuck:

GM should have offered the 5-spoke steel wheels some Astras have over here. This is an Astra Enjoy wheels (16 inch 5-spoke steel wheel with covers):

Shoot, Chevy and Pontiac use the "fascia spoke" steel wheel with integral cover as a slightly upscale alternative to a standard full wheel cover, why couldn't Saturn see fit to equip Astra XEs with them? Your photo looks much better than the XE wheel covers we get here.

A pristine 60's Chevy pickup. A very well maintained machine driven by a ol' southern gentleman.

Astra is a stop gap vehicle. They just need it here for 24 months and then they can give us better options with Delta II. I think like Europe they should offer here in two or more bread and butter engine levels.

I was driving home from church and saw a REAL vintage car... unfortunately, I couldn't tell what it was. :(

Oh yeah...and on Friday, a gold Oldsmobile Aurora V8.
