Zero to Sixty to change a little…

May 14, 2008

As we, my wife and I, will be going from a 2 Chevy home to a 1 Chevy home the blog will change a bit.  I am gonna keep it on the down low till the paperwork get through…

To go along with the theme of this post, there is a good article for all us gas guzzling truck and SUV owners, over at Yahoo.

Ahhh, the car truck…..

April 28, 2008

I can remember the first time i saw a car/truck….the El Camino. I wondered to myself, what an odd little vehicle. Looks like a car, yet has a bed…..weird. The El Camino is back in the states….well kinda.

Thanks to Jalopnik for posting this vid…it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Follow up on G8…

October 3, 2007

G82

Got some prices…

V6 Base $27,595

V8 GT Base $29,995.  Yep a V8 sedan basically imported from Down Under for under 30K!

And with $2,400 bucks separating the two,  we should see more people ponying up to buy the GT.

Halo 3 and Pontiac?

September 24, 2007

Well if you know me, and look at the other blog I run, you know I am a huge gamer.  And one of the games I hold near and dear to my heart is Halo.  I like the story, the characters, the multi-play, I like Halo.  Today is 9/24/2007, the day before Halo 3 comes out, the day before the end of the trilogy.  So poking around online I came across something…odd.

Halo Pontiac G6 GXP 1

G6 2

G6 3

Hmm….well you can win this vehicle…details here.

The Chevy Volt…SHOCKING!

September 17, 2007

Now I am all for a cleaner environment, plant a tree, save the seals, all that stuff.  So when I saw the Chevy Volt, I thought to myself, now that is cool. 

But the more I think about it, would I miss the rumble I get when I step on the gas and the RPMs rise on my 5.3l? Or the smile I get as I drive by that 40 year old guy in a four door 1998 Accord with a Pep Boys wing ,more stickers than a the latest Dora the Explorer sticker book, and a custom cold air intake made from PVC pipe bought at Home Depot, sorry that is another rant I have yet to make.

So for now the Volt is not for me, as cool as it is its not as cool as the next post I have planned….
