Thank you. I'll hang it with pride. I really appreciate the moral boost from you guys on this forum. Time to get back to work.
Since my Bonnie was totaled our family car has been a BMW 530i. It has not been trouble free and my wife is actually worried that it will strand us again (three times in four years) and right now the front passenger door lock actuator has failed locked. Can't get the door open to replace it so I have to totally destroy the inner door panel to remove it while the door is closed, then replace the actuator. So. I set out to find the modern family car of my dreams. Of course it had to be a Pontiac, right?? I found a 56,000 mile 2008 G8 GT down in Tucson. All black, inside, outside, upside down, in great shape and totally stock. The owner is a great young kid in the service training down at the air base in Tucson. He'* an Afghanistan veteran, a really good kid, and is making the service his life'* work, so I feel good that it'* going to him and not some dealer. I get it this weekend so I'm getting pretty antsy to have it in my grubby little hands. I'll get pics up as soon as I get it home. Guess I'll start using a little Aussie accent now in my everyday vocabulary, rawwwt myte??? LOL.
