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 “The Spaceship”

Bought the car about a year ago and instantly fell in love with it, got it for dirt cheap with a blown motor. threw another 420a in and its been running like a champ ever since ;]
