LA, I saw some more GAs. :D One that was almost exactly like mine drived by a really hot chic. A few 96-98s too... A beautiful red coupe and a just as beautiful black coupe. I also saw a 3rd gen. It was red. Come to think about it, I saw a slightly older 3rd gen in white, too. Also, guess what else I saw... My 4th G6 in Brookville!!!!! Wow!!!!

You're at your 4th one? I see them in dozens everyday! I'm starting to treat them like any other cars on the road, i.e. not surprised seeing them. My (previous) boss told me he rented a Pontiac Grand Am and ended up in a G6. He owns a Saab 9-3 and he says the G6 drives really well. Edited by ToniCipriani

Shit my boss OWNS one. But I don't like that guy. And his is ugly.

Not 4th overall, but 4th in Brookville that isn't on the dealer's lot. They just aren't catching on here. I really think the name is why... As well as the fact that GAs are still being sold along side it. Confuses people. You here that GM? Yeah, you fucked up, you bastards.

Our goofy secretary (the one that flirts with me bigtime, has a blue Cobalt sedan) ruined a young man's life yesterday, and she didn't even realize it. His yellow Cobalt coupe had been hit from behind. We had to replace the rear bumper cover and absorber and repair the rear body panel.

Anyhoo...

When he and his mom came in to pick it up last evening, she blurts out:

"I almost parked my blue Cobalt where yours is and told you that we decided to change color schemes for you because BLUE IS A BETTER COLOR FOR A BOY..."

The poor kid gets a funny look on his face and says "Yeah, we looked for a blue one, but every time we found one it was sold..."

This one statement will prolly make this kid hate his car forever now because this ditzy broad made a stupid comment. Doesn't she realize that guys, especially college freshmen, are very sensitive to having their manhood called into question with regards to their vehicle? And the kid's mom was standing there... she helped him buy the car. The mom prolly wanted to have a catfight with her right there in the waiting room.

I just wanted to smack my fellow employee right then and there and defend the kid, but I waited until they left, then I told her what's UP.

Um, oh yeah. I spotted a yellow '05 Cobalt LS 5 speed coupe that's prolly going to be for sale soon.

Our GA stock is long gone. Haven't seen them for a while. Most of them went to rental fleets I think.

Forgot to mention last night, saw an S2000 on a used car dealer in Waterloo. So close to going inside and taking it for a swing just for the sake of it. But I guess the guy knows I'm not going to buy it. Who wants an S2000 when there's a Solstice coming anyways?

I saw my first Solstice on the highway on the way home from work yesterday, and a BMW Z8 was about 15 cars behind it. I'm starting to see more and more '06 Impalas on the road. Two more yesterday alone. -RBB

i wonder how many redbulls one has to drink to start thinking of ideas such as mounting a 4 foot tall can of red bull on a VW Beattle?

Well, today I saw my first G6 coupe. Didn't come from my dealer, though, as they haven't gotten any yet. I saw it and instantly knew what it was, so I tried to chase it down. I got so close, but traffic slowed me and it got away. Damn. It made me forget why I was in town though... :P

Looked over a '40 Plymouth coupe, a '40 Dodge coupe and a phasmagoric '41 Cadillac coupe with a 390 underhood today. Caddy had a freakin' manual trans in it! Everytime I get close to these classics, new cars just look worse & worse and worse to me. There was a lexus GS parked near the '41: looked like dried vomit in comparison.

Saw an XLR today right as I was leaving my house to go to school. Today I was like 3 minutes later than usual (usually I barely get to school on time and have to speed a lot to get there). Maybe I should be extra late more often, they maybe I'd see the XLR more. :lol:

Spotted a car I haven't noticed in quite a while: The first-gen LH Chrysler New Yorker. I was thinking yesterday how I should post about cars that we all haven't seen in a loing time, inspired by that car, then on the afternoon drive, lo and behold....

See, I see random cars like that all the time, like a late-80s Mazda 626 and early-90s Chevy Corsica, both 5-door hatchbacks. Also, the worst '92 Toronado EVER. Weatherbeaten red with a misaligned decklid and hood and the CRT screen inside busted out for some reason.

Looked over a '40 Plymouth coupe....

That's it in my sig. Love this car; it's lines are simple yet fantastic. Wish I had more time & less projects so I could buy it.
