    I ran across a great deal, 2004 Impala, sunroof, red, 68,400, one owner who has records of all that has ever been done to the car while in their posession.
    I only paid 3200. Im jazzed, always wanted an Impala. Hope to own a 59 Impala one day.

    Congrats! I almost bought one a few years ago (not a '59). It was black... dark tinted windows and shiny rims, but it had some mechanical issues so I passed.

    I still hope to own an early 90's model Nissan 300ZX. I just love the looks of them... those and the Dodge Stealth.

    Thats a sweet looking car too.
    I want to get the windows tinted in my Impala, thought of doing it myself, but last time I tried to tint my windows on my Z-28, I ended up with bubbles all in it. Gona have to leave it the professionals this time.

    Too bad you don't live around here. The guy that tinted my windows last time did an awesome job and he's not badly priced. I'd get the windshield tint strip too if you don't have one. They make it nice... usually only about 20 bucks more.

    I thought about getting vent visors/rain guards but I dunno if I would like them or not. I've driven cars with them and they bugged me, but maybe I would get used to it?

    I blew the tread off of a tire racing one of those 300z cars at around 120 scared the hell outa me.

    Anywho check out these new Hyundai's pushing over 300hp w-out a turbo or a supercharger.

    I love old Chevys but refuse to buy new American cars now that my tax payments are subsidizing their stupid unions. I'll have my wifes Aura paid off in two more years I might find a good deal on one of these sexy things.

    2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

    Oh, yeah... I like the Genesis. I forgot about that one. I was eyeballing it when it came out. Very nice looking ride.

    I saw a Mitsubishi Endeavor yesterday that I liked. I like that they still keep that SUV box look and didn't go all huge grill, ugly fender, bubble butted like so many crossovers are now.... um... like the Nissan Murano.

    The interior is cool as well.

    That Genesis is a pretty sporty ride. I'm impressed with Hyundai on that one.

    I need a midsize SUV for my wife that isn't too cost prohibitive. Her Lexus IS250 is too small now (dammit) so she needs somethng else. She likes the Saturn Outlook.

    Hope I can find a cheap one.

    My mommy just got a '10 Equinox. She likes it. I'll have to get used to it... big grill, bubble butt... I don't like the dash layout, but I like the seats and it has a ton of room and the exterior color is nice. Haven't driven it to know what it drives like. Had Pontiac not have been killed, I guess that's what my Torrent would have turned into (though the wikipedia says the GM Terrain replaced it)... probably a prettier version though. The Torrents are better looking and the Equinoxes IMO. Any kind of car that Chevy and Pontiac made the same of, the Pontiac always looked better.

    Holy shit almost 10% more HP and same basic price it is quite impressive. The Asian cars are kicking ass.

    53% front weight to 47% rear and that awesome synchro-rev manual trans means you would be stupid to buy the auto trans. Going into a corner really hard is gonna give ever so slight over steer and with 330+hp you can steer out of that with the accelerator. And downshifting will be a breeze without missing a shift.

    I just thought it was pretty. I am not a fan of speed. It could max out at 80 and I would be fine.

    If I were getting a Dodge, I would get a Challenger. Not to sound cocky, but I think I would look good in that car.

    I wonder what they call it. The old Challenger came in "Plum Crazy Purple" (factory name) if I recall correctly.

    I love this beauty, especially the color is rocking. You can decorate it with vinyl coated bumper stickers to make it more sporty and unique among the other.
