I Murdered My Brother

Well, I haven't yet, but probably will....

Anyways... :D I went looking at new cars yet again! Yay!

My first trip was to Brockway. The dealer was meathead Eazer Chevrolet-Pontiac. What did they have, you ask? Well, well, well... a G6 GT coupe. It was black. Looked awesome and again much better than expected. But, I'll let the pics do the talking...

My second trip was over to Dubois. The first dealer was Osbourn Pontiac-Buick-GMC. What did they have, you ask? A few G6 GTP coupes and a few Torrents. Again, I'll let the pics speak...

My third trip was over to Murray's Honda also in Dubois. I saw the new Civic coupe once again. My thoughts: Looks good, but a little frumpy. The interior is growing on me, though. My main complain is now just the double clusters. The pics...

My fourth trip was to Murray's Ford-Lincoln-Mercury located next door. I got a chance to look at each of the new sedans. They sat right next to each other too. And my thoughts: The Zephyr looks better in person. The front is nice, but doesn't match the rest of the car. The body is too similar to the others and the rear is just horrible. The interior... actually it looks good. The difference being that it had much better contrast than ones in the pics I've seen. It was black/tan with dark wood. I must say... it was quite beautiful. The Milan looks good, I guess. The front absolutely rocks, but the rear is weird and doesn't match. The interior didn't look bad, but was the same as the Ford; a turn-off. The stitching in the leather was cool, though. The Fusion looks good as well. It's bold, yet bland. That's all I really have to say about it... Now the pics...

Then my digicam's batteries died, so that's why I don't have front pics of the Milan and Fusion. :D

Loooove the taillights on the Milan! BV, do you think it's disturbing that I've been to every one of those dealerships?

The Fusion has the best-looking rear of the triplets, but the chrome is a little too heavy-handed. I like the LEDs, but the taillights of both the Zephyr and Milan over-emphasize the high rear deck. Pontiac could have done a better job with the rear of the G6 coupe. It's too soft and doesn't match the front of the car.

I like the rear of the Milan the best. The G6 coupe is much better than that of the sedan. The taillamps aren't 90s-cheesy.

Wow, that dealer wrote on the Zephyr's windshield like it was a used Ford Escort or something.

I like the Fusion's taillights the best. The Milan's are placed too high up to the rear for my liking. I have the same gripe with the Mazda3 sedan.

the distinctive part of the Milan's ass end is the big chrome strip at the bottom of the trunk lid. that and high taillights give a real distinctive look on the road. saw one the other day and it really stood out, just like the Fusion does, but in a different way with the same sheet metal. good job ford.

The G6 Coupe does look good for sure. The Fusion is looking better than the rest. Its nice to see how some of the GM dealer signs are updated and some are not. From what I understand the current and correct way to have a GM dealer sign is to have the updated fonts for Pontiac and the new gold logo for Chevorlet, and sadly enough to update the Cadillac Logo and to have the dealer name in BLACK backround..... The dealers here where I live, one is a a Cadillac/Oldsmobile/Hummer/Chevorlet dealer.... Its funny cause they still have Oldsmobile up there and the GM logo is a darker color than their Chevrolet sign that is about 200 yards down the street. Their Chevrolet sign still has a blue outlined bowtie on it and they used a decal overlay to add the Hummer logo below the Oldsmobile logo on the Cadillac/Oldsmobile display sign.... You would think that GM would send out updated signs to these dealers so they didn't look super ghetto compared to the other car dealers in town. Oh yeah, the new honda looks like an Ion which is gross... and I think the Torrent looks nice, so the chances are that if somebody is going to buy one, they will have fallen upon a Pontiac dealer before they reached the Chevrolet dealer..... both are nice looking but they are IDENTIAL :( Edited by CadillacKing3

Whose idea was it to park all three triplets next to each other? Anyway, I'll admit that the Milan looks AWESOME. Saw one near school yesterday and couldn't get over how great it looked...even the rear.

Now this is the correct Cadillac Logo and the correct dealer name sign....

and this is the correct Chevrolet sign without a correct dealer name sign

I'm beginning to like the Milan, too. It's very ritzy, tailored-looking, and almost Italian in its detailing. The front isn't as bold as the Fusion's, but it'll probably be rarer.

Vipes, excellent adjective for the new Civic coupe... "frumpy".

I guess it's only me, but the Ford triplets look somewhat dated... maybe it's the greenhouse. I can't get into them, except for the sharp front ends on all three.

The G6 coupe is very cool. Thanks for the front 3/4 views, Vipes, showing off that nice sharp hip line. I like the reflection in the showroom window of the rear end of the white GTP.

Dealer hopping is fun. I still do it sometimes on Sunday afternoons.

They don't have room for logos on the Canadian dealership signs (with the exception of Chevy SOMETIMES), cause our dealerships are always one of the following combos:

Yeah... the reflection is why I took that pic. Although, my angle isn't quite perfect.

You know your GA looks tiny in that first shot compared to the G6...

Yes it does... It's the same way in person too. My GA is just tiny. I like it small, but I will admit that even I feel a bit cramped in its interior. Especially now that I've had to wear my leather jacket.

This reminds me of something, though. Me and one of the salesman talked a bit about the G6 coupe. Not necessarily because I wanted to, but because he wouldn't go away and kept talking to me while I just wanted to look at it. Not that I didn't mind, though... Anyways, he tried to tell me how me how it's closer to the size of mine than the previous GA coupe. Uh.. not quite. He did say it was a grown up version of mine, which it really is the more I think about it. It's kind of evolved into the G6 coupe. It's a mix of both 4th gens and the 5th gen, but with a little Japanese mixed in. Anyways, we also talked about how it looks much better in person than in pics. He said he wasn't enthusiastic about it until he got one it. He also said that since he was used to having Pontiacs, it was wierd seeing one without a spoiler and how it's somewhat bland. Boy do I ever agree....

I saw an '06 Civic coupe for the first time yesterday in the parking garage at work..surprised how short the nose is...it kind of has that continuous slope from the top of the windshield to the end of the hood like a Prius...

I love the taillights on all the cars on that platform...But the Fusion's are by far, the coolest.

BV--Those GTP coupes are pretty sweet. I saw one of those for the first time at a dealer a while back.
BTW--i spy a little black Cobalt in that first pic. :)

What a waste. Pontiac finally gets a coupe and it looks like that. Almost looks like a stretched version of the new Civic, which is ugly also. I'd rather have the 4 door.

I can see that Aveo plotting it's revenge in the background.
