2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS
2008 Pontiac Grand Prix Base model
Head to Head
In late 2005, I decided that I didn't want to subject my '66 Corvair daily driver to another winter of Pennsylvania road salt. Its floors had virtually no rust, just a little surface rust, and I wanted to keep it that way! GM was having one of its rebate promos, so I checked into how much a Cobalt would cost. The local dealers (I have three within 10 minutes!) all came in too high, but there was one about ten miles away that quoted me a price that was just too good to pass up. They pitched me the SS, with the equipment I wanted, cheaper than one of the other dealers quoted me on am LT!
I call it "Bud" because I'm a big NASCAR fan, especially the Earnhardts. Dale Earnhardt was, is, and always will be THE MAN! Dale, Jr. is currently my driver, because, after all, he is his father's son. Now, at the time, JR. drove a red Chevy SS with "Bud" painted across the hood. What else am I going to call MY red Chevy SS? (I have no plans to repaint it in his current colors!)
And for all you other NASCAR fans out there, I'm open to guesses as to what Bud's license plate "BOOG8Y 3" means.
Well hello all motortopia member. This is my first car that i bought in september of 08. I needed a car for school asap so one day my family and i were getting some stuff to start a bbq on our way there i saw a car lot and told them if we could only take a lool at the cars. After taking the test drive on a mazda i like it but could not afford it. Then the vendor said he had a pontiac pretty much new, i took the test drive and floored it for my first actual car i thought it was fast and very responsive. After 4 or 5 hours of paper work i took home my new 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix and had a delicious BBQ.
