Cool news!

By ChevroletBuick1

Hey everyone! Have some news for you all! I was accepted into my college of choice which is a community college in my area. I am going for automotive service-GM. I went to an informational meeting and I have to do a paid internship at a dealership in the area. I also have to travel daily to a seperate location for the actual automotive classes. My parents decided that because I will have a lot of money in tools and such it would be best not to take a bus everywhere. So they said I will take my dad's '06 Saturn Vue and he will get a new car! I'd like to think this is my first car. I have done the majority of the work on it and really have gotten to know it. It is a 5-speed manual 4 cylinder! I am very excited.

Now, he did get a new car faster than I thought he would...we picked it up 3 days after he told me this. He ended up buying a 2010 Honda CR-V AWD. It is either a 2.0 or 2.4 4 cylinder. I haven't had time to look! It is automatic. It's very stylish and I'm not a Honda guy but I sure do like this car. It runs quiet, shifts perfectly and looks brand new. Pictures will come up when I get around to getting them! I took it for a short drive and for a 4 cylinder it felt pretty powerful!

All in all we are all very excited. We now have the 2006 Vue, 2010 CR-V and a 2010 Odyssey. Let me know if you guys are interested about my school. I would love to tell you what the facilities are like (lets just say amazing). I have a few model cars to put up as well. That should happen soon! Hope to hear from you all soon! Take care!

-Chris

Sounds great Chris! Take care of that Vue and it should last a long time. Learn all you can at school and apply it in your internship and life should be good to you! Best of luck to you and your dreams!

Good for you Chris. Nice to see young kids that are interested in cars and pursuing what they want to do in life. Good luck to you and don't thrash that VUE too much
