About “Da 'Clipse”

I got this car my second semester of my senior year back in 2004. I love this car and anyone who owns an eclipse of any generation will know wat im talking about. Its not the fastest car on the road but it manages.

About “The Balt”

I can say that I'm very pleased with my purchase. The powertrain is superb and interior space provides comfort that's completely devoid of tacky gimics common to the Japanese competition. Handling is very good for a FWD car, but the ride is stiff. The gearbox has an "American" feel to it. Longish throw but having solid, positive engagements. It's really nice actually .
