  1. Happy Birthday 2005 EquinoxLS!

  2. I almost fainted too when I read Consumer Reports review on this car. I have sat in one and it seems like a big step up from mine. Though my 2008 will have to do for now this could be a good replacement for it when that time comes. I do find it funny though that it weighs about 3800 pounds. That's as much as my 1985 Caprice and 1981 Bonneville. No longer can people say that those 2 cars are big heavy beasts since the new one is just as heavy.
  3. I got to drive a Sonic while Moms Aveo was getting some work done. Not really something for my taste but I couldn't fault somebody for wanting one. I think the 1.8 liter engine is great plenty for most people. I don't really like the idea of the 1.4 liter turbo. More to go wrong later. It was quiet, ride fairly well despite the large 17 inch tires. My biggest complaint with it is that the seats are a little narrow for somebody larger and the map pocket on the door and the other storage compartment in the transmission tunnel make leg space a little narrow. I also found that when you slowed down
  4. I had a 1981 2-door coupe with the light tan-brown two tone. Nice color combo. Yeah, the 229 V6 wasn't much for acceleration but it did get fair mileage. Only thing was I'm told they didn't run more than 70-80,000 miles before a rebuild was needed. Mine with 116,000 miles on it was on its 3rd engine. The rust preventative measures worked well except for the bottoms of the doors. There wasn't a lot left of those by the time I got the car. But it served me well until I got a 1979 Impala that was in way better shape.
  5. I've had the carburetor rebuilt on my 1981 Bonneville. Mine started well but if you tried to drive too soon it would stall. The car tended to idle roughly also. Once the rebuild was done and some kinks were worked out it works much better. Surprisingly mine still has the original starter. The transmission was rebuilt 20,000 miles ago(It now has 123,000 on it). Other than maybe some new coolant hoses and antifreeze it wouldnt be afraid to take it on a road trip.
  6. I have had mine rebuilt on my Bonneville. I guess where the throttle shaft is was worn enough to cause a little vacuum leak. So keep that in mind. Good luck my friend.
  7. I am so sorry to hear that you had to sell your cars. But if you can try to keep the 1979 then do it. Maybe in the future things will change that you can buy again. Until then get better. And you'll still get to see the 1981 from time to time. Again, the best of luck to you.
  8. Glad to see someone else liking a car of this era. I love it!!!!
  9. 2008 Chevrolet Impala LS. I leased the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox brand new of course.
  10. Luckily it didnt snow in Northeast Wisconsin. Still got a few things to get inside and I need to change the oil in my big snowblower.
  11. My Co-corkers didnt tell me they were ordering pizza. So I did without while they were enjoying theirs.
  12. Dont know if I trust Fiat.
  13. Glad to see you are alive and well. I still got my 2 b-bodies and they are doing well.
