  1. got a cool $35K in your pocket?

    This is wonderful! I am so glad a few lucky owners will be able to drive one! Why GM won't release these to the public is beyond me, it would make 10,000 maybe 20,000 happy customers a year! I am sure this will end all chances of a consumer like me being able to get my hands on one new in the future. It will have to be pre-owned, but pre-owned could mean 10 miles on the clock too. I figured there would be a loop hole in all of this and a smart dealer has found it!
  2. What Would You Do Differently If Gas Hit $5 A Gallon In 2012?

    Exactly. I am not going to stop driving what I like to drive because of five dollar a gallon gas. I will cut down on trips and make minor changes. Overall nothing for me is going to change a huge amount. Hell someone in my house might even upsize to a full size RWD Zeta if it ever comes or a truck.
  3. Design Competition #4 - K5 Design Contest

    I have something brewing Camino but might not get to it for a while. I have been rather busy as of late.
  4. 2012 Buick Verano details and pricing leaked in dealer letter?

    I agree 100 percent. A Cruze with a 2.4L would make it a car that could even appeal to me. I will not consider one with the piss poor under powered engines they have in it currently. Although that makes the Verano interest me because of the 2.4L if it looks decent and isn't a porker it could be an appealing option even for someone like me.
  5. Could you please get a few more photos of the interior and exterior of the truck Oldsmoboi? I just love looking at this beast! Anyways just look at the window sticker... It is certainly pricey but you get a TON of truck!
  6. I do have a few questions... How is riding/driving it? How did it perform in tight areas (parking lot) and on the back roads? Did it feel as feel like a big truck? Also if you get a chance how did the bed handle a load? I am already enjoying the photos, and might like one of these for myself but with a 6.0L.
  7. Granite LUV truck

    Better looking than the first five door concept. I like this thing. If it would sell and they can build a business case for it, I would love to see them on the road. A 2.0L Turbo would make it nice to drive as well.
  8. G8 redux? Chevy comeback rumored for Holden Commodore

    I gotcha. Can't I just be happy they issued an IPO and this thing has worked out pretty well? Because I am. Now back to this new Zeta Chevrolet...
  9. G8 redux? Chevy comeback rumored for Holden Commodore

    You are exactly correct. Simply it comes back to supply and demand.
  10. G8 redux? Chevy comeback rumored for Holden Commodore

    I don't recall saying I wanted a G8 GXP if I could get it deeply discounted. I feel no need to justify myself and my GM vehicles but I will... I got a 1977 Pontiac Bonneville Sedan in 1982 for dealer trade price from my dad when he got his first Olds 88. Then in 1990 I got my first (almost new) GM car. A 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix LE Sedan with a 3.1L and styled steel wheels. I have no clue what sticker was but I paid about 14K for it with around 10,000 miles on it and it was a GM program car. In 1994 I got a used Olds Delta 88 for an aunt. Paid her what dealer trade on it was. In 2001 I got a 2001 Chevrolet Impala Sedan (still have it) sticker was 20,XXX paid 18,500 for it basically $250 ABOVE invoice with a 1,000 rebate on it. (Yes I actually didn't get 10,000 off on a car!) Flash foward to June 2005, I got a 2005 Pontiac Bonneville SLE (many of you have seen this one) with 3,800 miles on it that was driven by a exec at the dealer. Sticker was $32,965.00 paid $21,500.00 with $1,500 trade in from my '92 Cadillac which I got when my mother passed away. So yes I got a great deal on that car, but why should I have overpaid. I went in and paid what the dealer had it listed for (23K) and the took 1.5K off for the trade. I just paid the going rate. As for my Torrent it was a 2007 Purple Haze FWD Torrent that I got in January of 2008 for 16K and the sticker was a hair over 24K. Once again I paid the dealers price (with rebate), minus my trade ('90 GP) and minus my 2K in GM card earning to get it. So I don't really feel bad for getting a few good deals, and a few that weren't as good. Unlike some people on the forum who make such a fuss out of me hurting GM beceause I try to get the best price, I do actually drive GM cars and practice what I preach. I believe they have a great product and when I go to buy I try to support them. Also when someone I know needs a car I speak highly of GM cars and offer any help I can. I hope that helps clear things up.
  11. G8 redux? Chevy comeback rumored for Holden Commodore

    I really don't think so. But having said that I am glad an IPO was issued and the tax payers are getting money back. I am just glad it worked out well.
  12. G8 redux? Chevy comeback rumored for Holden Commodore

    I am not the masses per say. I do not hide it, I LOVE a good deal. Case in point my Torrent 24K sticker, picked it up for 16K (without tax). Then again that was with the massive rebate, invoice price, and my 2K off my GM card. I did bitch about Government Motors because the government should not own a car company, now that the IPO is issued, I am happy again. Practices the pushed them into bankruptcy wasn't cutting a deal on a few odd ball model year old clearance vehicles, trust me.
  13. Pontiac GT-37

    Your sig... It tells me something good is about to happen... Whatever good that might be I can't wait to see it.
  14. G8 redux? Chevy comeback rumored for Holden Commodore

    After getting 10k off which one the truck or "SS"? What exactly, are you getting at? I make no bones about it, when I go car shopping I get a good deal.
