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!

About “wildanimal”

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.
