    Mar 28, 2008, 1:07 PM - Wizardís New Ride! #1

    Hello,

    Sorry I havenít been around lately I have been swamped so if I have forgotten anyone please send me a PM to remind me.

    Now to the subject of the thread I just put in the order for my new ride. It is a Saturn Sky, 2.4L 16V, 177 Hp, midnight blue as pictured with black & red leather. I nearly got a ticket during the test drive so I figured I better stay away from the Turbo, it has 260 Hp.

    Now I have to wait 8 very long weeks!

    Alan

    What a set of wheel! That car is worthy of being driven by someone with 00 status.

    I sat in one of those at the dealer last year. Pretty nice inside, lots of external styling cues from the C6 Corvette. I hear they're loads of fun to drive. Congrats, I'm sure you'll enjoy it a lot, especially with summer coming up.

    I am really looking forward to it! For the past 10 years I have been driving an SUV, but before that I had a Ferio that I loved to drive, great car for LA, wish I had a convertible then. Seattle isn't noted for its nice weather, but I'll manage. Driving will be fun again!!

    No hard top, yet. The Pontiac Solstice will have a hard top for 2009, can't say that I care for it. Looks too much like the old 280Z but in a bad way.

    As for cost, before taxes and tags $28410.00 for the 2.4L with leather I had to pay a bit more for the black/red interior. Saturn is great to buy a car from walked in told them what I wanted and we were done. No "Well I need to talk to the manager first..." messing around, totally hate that. I was there for an hour and that was with 2 test drives thrown in.

    Hey, they can't give you a ticket if they can't catch you!

    Seriously though, very nice! Put some pictures up when you get it! That's going to be one heck of a UPS package!

    it's only a 177hp 4 cylinder saturn, the cops can catch that. but you'd look pretty cool during the chase, and then like a damn fool when they have your face buried in the concrete with the cuffs on.

    Well today is the day. I get to pick up my new ride this afternoon!! Of course it arrived while I was in Atlanta, which made that trip seem all that much longer. I'll post pics once I get it home.

    The first thing that I am buying is a radar detector, as long as I see them first they won't know I'm being a bit agressive on the gas pedal.

    Have a great day All!

    even though the Saturn sky and Pontiac solstice are basically the same car, the sky is so much sexxxier!!

    Beautiful car Alan! Would love to trade my Nissan Armada in for a more sportier and fuel efficient Sky. Got to haul the kids though. Can't put two kids in a two-seater.

    Have fun and remember that all radar detectors do is tell you when you are getting a ticket.
