About “My Daughter's Chevy Cobalt”

This is my Daughter's 2006 Chevy Cobalt, After she owned 2 Chrysler's PT Cruisers, she decided it was time for a change. I kept looking locally but just didn't find anything she might like, So I started surfing the Internet for a car just her style and we found this in South Carolina. The 17 inch Rims and wheels and body decaling sold us on this immediately. We called the Dealership and set up an appointment for my Daughter and I to Drive down and have a look and a Test Drive.

About “LT”

I had my eye on this car for quite awhile before I got the chance to buy it. It had been sitting in somebodys yard for ten to fifteen years. When the neighbors started complaining I got the car for $100. I guess he figured he'd be better off getting a little bit of money for the car instead of letting the city tow it off. He thought the motor and tranny were shot, and couldn't find the keys or title. We dragged the car home and found the title inside (it was quite a mess and full of all kinds of junk) and the original paperwork under the back seat. Replaced the ignition, battery, and drained and added gas, oil, and tranny fluid. It started up and drove. I have since had to replace the transmission, but you can't beat it for a hundred bucks!
