About “Poncho”

Late last year, it was my Torino that got destroyed. A few months ago, it was my wife Sandi's '02 Malibu. We found this car at an auction of reposessed and off-lease, bank-owned cars. It was the nicest car there that would suit our needs, and we were very nicely surprised when we won the auction! Since we bought it, we haven't been anything but happy with it. Its a lot more fun than I expected- It accelerates and handles like a BMW 3-Series, but with better gas mileage and more interior room! (And I like the styling better, too!)

About “DA GTU”

I got this car as a present on October 3, 2008 for my 19th B-DAY but still have to pay for it. I paid $800 for it and then changed the control module(70 for part,125 for labor) and the power steering pump(40 for part, 60 labor). It had 290,000 miles on the dash and said to have 60,000 on engine and it does feel like it and look too.At first i didnt like it much but now i wont get rid of this car like i did to my 84 300zx turbo. more comin soon..

sold wit 300000 on dash. put in a cornfield, dithched twice and got stuck out side my friends house. had some good times and some bad, thats why i sold it..
