About “Cherry Bomb”

Last month, I got a MAJOR Union greviance settlement at work. My wife and I decided that it was time for me to get a car I really liked since she got a decent one earlier this year. We went looking for something that I would like better than my old Cavalier sedan (Notice that I never bothered to post that car!) and that would be a better fit for our two growing kids. After a series of phone calls to local dealers, we jumped in the old Cavalier and headed on down to the local Pontiac/Buick/GMC store to check out this car. It was the sales manager's demo, so if you combine that with the Labor Day sale, End-Of-Model-Year pricing, and Pontiac being a 'Lame Duck' brand, you can see why we got a great screamin' deal on this car - nearly 1/4 off sticker!
