    I spend a Saturday a couple weeks ago walking all around town with a buddy of mine playing it. It was fun, but I haven't felt motivated to play it on my own. I kind of hated Pokémon when I was a kid, so the nostalgia factor doesn't really affect me. My buddy tried getting me to play Ingress too and I didn't follow through much with that either. I am happy that it's popular though, and getting people out and active and social and having fun.
  2. New Car Decision

    Indeed, scarlet red, and new body style. Here it is: I have to say, even though this is the first car I've payed for with my own money, the fact that I'm leasing it makes it feel like it's still not really "my car." It's still a great car and I am very happy to have it, but I don't feel the same affection for it that I did towards the Sunfire. Maybe it will come with time. It may also be the fact that it was more something I *needed*, not just wanted. And it's something I needed because of my own carelessness. I was hoping to drive the Sunfire until it fell apart, and was hoping it would not do that until the Elio was produced (though it was already starting to.)
  3. July Car Observation Thread

    Saw this handsome Eagle last night: This is from February, but I still must share with you this glorious beast: Yes, it is a Cimarron chopped into a 2-seat convertible with a continental kit. Actually, I just found some info and nicer pictures of it here: http://www.j-body.org/forums/read.php?f=28&i=17715&t=17715
  4. Announcement

    Congratulations Cory! I hope it leads to even greater opportunities for you.
  5. New Car Decision

    So I forgot I had made this thread. Didn't realize it had been over two months ago. But I ended up leasing a red Cruze LT Automatic. I'm pretty satisfied with it. I was very tempted by the Sonic 6-speed manual, but there were none readily available and I needed a car as quickly as possible. No regrets about my choice. It looks great, gets 40+ mpg, smooth ride, and I can play whatever music I want in it. Thanks for y'alls advice!
  6. How do you pronounce Impala?

    I have only ever said and heard im-PAL-uh. Im-PAH-luh sounds like saying it with a weird affected snobby accent.
  7. New Car Decision

    Hi folks, long time. I had a crash with my Sunfire a couple weeks ago. it still drives, but the passenger door and front fender got effed up. My dad has taken it back and I'm borrowing my sister's S-10 in the interim. So I've been shopping for my first new car. I've narrowed it down to either a Sonic hatch or a Cruze. Probably a 2 year, 17k mi/yr lease. Hopefully I'll have an Elio by the end of that. So what are your thoughts about the two choices? They both seem like good cars, and it's hard to say I have a preference between them. I'd like to keep overall cost to a minimum, including payments, gas, and insurance.

    Ah-ha. I hadn't seen the '17 LaCross before, but you're right, that's what it looks like.

    My dad saw this camo'd car a couple weeks ago. Any ideas about what it is?

    #3 is a Pininfarina-bodied C2 Corvette #2... can't remember the name but I'm sure it's German
  12. March Car Spotters Thread.

    A couple weeks ago I saw a flatbed trailer carrying three rusted out Subaru 360s.
  13. The improperly modified GM vehicle thread...

    Something about that stripped Fiero appeals to me... reminds me of the Warthog from Halo.
