I do not know if this is true or not, but I just heard a couple days ago that GM just announced that they are NOT discontinuing the Oldsmobile line. I am not sure if it is true or not like I said, but I wouldn't doubt it.

And since a Porsche 911 is sports car with a midship mounted engine and RWD and light weight, I would consider it an honor to be considered for a race with one.
Really. If you are in a Pontiac and a Porsche wants to race you, GOOD FOR YOU! Hell, we have revved at 911 Turbo'* at lights before and they just laugh. Yes, a 911 Turbo is faster than the GTP, but they would be in for quite a suprize if they raced because they definately wouldn't pull as hard as they would expect, and we really just want to see how much faster a 911 Turbo is.

My bud and I traded cars last weekend.
He has a canary yellow 911 Turbo 6 speed.
He was actually impressed with the luxury with attitude of my SSEi.
Not quite as impressed as I was.
****, that sounds like fun. I am sure he was probably kind of impressed with the SSEi, but I am sure you were more impressed with the 911 Turbo 6 Speed!!! 6 Speed! Damn, I want to drive a 6 Speed 911!!!

I drove the 2003 Aurora and by-gum-it, thats a nice car. Very stylsih. I have not driven a 2K+ SSEi tho, so I guess my comparision is useless.
Maybe we can fix that.

It really was a rush. Damn thing squirts in every gear like a watermellon seed between your fingers.
Love rear wheel drives.
I did feel a little self conscience though in that screaming yellow Pikachu monster. All $185,000 of it !! My buddy owns his own Restaurant / Marina and can afford things I never will. .....but oh to dream.

Man I'd love to drive a Porsche. Maybe my dad will let me drive his 6-speed 03 Vette...but next to that the most expensive car I've driven is a Mercedes Benz CLK.

That'* the thing that i love about a bonnie. If you lose.. so what. There'* no shame in losing to a powerful mustang or camaro. But when you win it'* freakin halious to see the look on those mustangs and camero drivers faces. Oh so much fun.

They can't keep oldsmobile, they cut down to 2 cars this year, the Aurora, and the Bravada, (or whatever the trailblazer/envoy sibling is called). They've cut all aleros, intrigues etc.
