Unfortunately, the Vibe isn't even Pontiac-styled. It'* a Toyota Voltz, through and through, save the badges.

That Charger is a Magnum with the hatch cut off. Looks like a Stratus, with the front end of Magnum. I don't like it. The new Mustang sucks, it looks like a 21st rendering of the '60s.. wait, that'* what it is. Just made of plastic.. not my cup of soup. However, the GTO... it may not look like an old GTO, but I love it. I'd totally hit one.

Actually, the Vibe is styled by Pontiac, whereas the Matrix is styled by Toyota. The two share a platform and mechanicals, but do not share a single body panel.

The Vibe is assembled at NUMMI in CA, and the Matrix is assembled somewhere in Canada.

I am not sure what a Voltz looks like, but I have heard of it on the Vibe forum that I frequent, but I do know that the Vibe exterior was designed by Pontiac.

HERE is a Dodge Charger, and a little something extra...




Me likes the DVD set of "The Dukes of Hazzard" (season 1) that I got for Christmas.

I don't care what any of you say; it'* awesome, it'* got a Hemi, and one of 'em is going to be mine someday! :P

And swartlkk... Thanks SO much for the second batch of pics!

"Falling in love, falling in love again..."



And guys, remember: It'* just marketing on the name. It'* got a Hemi, it looks muscular, and it'* most likely going to be just as bad *** (maybe more so, if that'* even possible; I sure hope it is! ) as the Chrysler 300, which was Car & Driver AND Motor Trend Car of the Year! So what, it'* got two extra doors? It looks like it will do the hard-charging... Charger (sorry) of old proud, what with the Hemi and the aggressive looks. Even the tail end, the least inspiring part of the car, is decent. HelI, I like this thing even more than the Magnum, and I like the Magnum a BUNCH The King (the old Charger) is dead. Long live the new King!
