So I haven't been a very active member lately, lots of work and a lot of research. Work has been kicking my butt, but I like it thus far and it helps to pay for things... like a new car!
So after months of looking I knew what I could afford with a wedding and such in my near future and went into the car market 95% sure I wanted a car and not another SUV. Don't get me wrong, I love my Jeep, but she is pushing 12 years now and little things bug me, like intermediate wipers not working.
So I decided to look at new cars, the list was huge and I was very picky. The down side of being 6’6” is that narrows a lot of the field. Most foreign cars I looked at from Acura and Nissan were not practical, I wasn’t comfortable. I narrowed the list a lot and ended up buying an import
. So if you have read thus far, congrats, I bought a new 2006 Pontiac GTO.
Got a great deal as the dealerships want to sell them and it was perfect for what I was looking for. Good resale value, sporty, I like the looks, LS2… and I almost got the Brazen Orange, but the Phantom Black I couldn’t pass up.
Here are some of the first pics:
(Oh yeah, It was a nice rainy day here too, sorry bout the poor quality pics
The only thing I plan on doing to it (for those that might ask) is removing the front licence plate, and the dealership sticker from the rear.
