Re: RIP GM

Come to Michigan and I'll take you for a ride in my reliable, 19 year old
Ranger. It may be lacking in the "cosmetics arena" but it runs like a
champ! 🙂

Or, if you're REALLY lucky, you might get a ride in my neighbor's restored
1968 Ford Mustang Fastback.

Re: RIP GM

And just think how much those parts manufacturers are going to be making
too! Pontiac prices skyrocketed when it was announced the line was being
dismantled. Oh well, there goes my dream of a 1970 Pontiac GTO
convertible.

Guess I'll have to go pick up that 1961 Ford Falcon I saw for sale with the
little 289 in it.

I don't know that you'll see much of that. The local Saturn dealership
doesn't seem even remotely concerned about their future, and has no plans
of closing. We just had to have the cooling fan replaced and the price
was quite reasonable.

I could see that, Pontiac is a line with much more history behind it.

My first car was a 69 Pontiac LeMans when I was 16. Wish I still had it.

All American cars stink. That's why the Big Three are all in the tank.

I'm aiming for a house at the moment. Some day I will own that Beamer.

Mine was a 1990 four banger two wheel drive standard.

Yabbut people say the same thing about <insert name of any deity here>,
and look at the trouble THAT causes. 😉

Personally, I have to say that every American-branded car I've owned --
and there have been a bunch* -- was unreliable compared to the two
Hondas I've had.


*Disclaimer: I have never owned a Chrysler product

My first car was a '78 Monte Carlo with a 305. Was a runner back in the
day. I don't wish I still had it.

My second car was a 80's something Buick Skylark.

My third ride was a 1990 Ford Ranger. Kind of gutless, but it got from
point A to point B.

My fourth and current car is a 1995 Toyota Celica ST.

That's what they said at the doctors office too. Now I don't have any
arms or legs. 😛
