Default New Wheels

Been watching my gxp climb in mileage (46,000) and have looking over what I could get in the $20k range for a new daily driver to keep the GXP in great shape, and decided to finally go import. Yep, let the stones be thrown my way. I ordered a new Prius yesterday, should be ready the beginning of the week. 51 MPG (I got 55 on my varied road test drive), And quite peppy with the Corolla engine in it this year along side the electric motor. I am liking my new toy with a ton of stuff to play with while I drive. Rest assured I wont be getting rid of my Pontiac till it'* given in my Will.











OK. let the "flames" begin.......Hah!

Nothing like going to the other end of the extreme.

LOL! I'll be happy to race you Bonne to Bonne Todd. Bring the title or cash. I dont spray for free.

This ones for getting from point a to b, cheaply and comfortably. My knees dont rub the dash in it, unlike the GXP. Not that it isnt a comfy car, but I get tired of reshifting my body constantly to avoid this on m y frequent trips to Michigan.

Do you really want me to dress you in pink, forget your post count, ridicule you for a 90 day period, and remove all but minimal permissions?........

Those cars are pretty fast on the highway. I've been past by many of them driving my work van.

Sounds like a sensible move John.
