Default What to do...

Okay my wife is really scaring me she is half serious about the new Pontiac Torrent she saw one asked if it was like the Chevy verson I said yes... But she was like I like the Torrent better I am like as do I. She is like wanna trade the SLE in on a Torrent. I said wait a min. you have to want to trade your favorite car the Impala in on a Torrent not my Bonne was that being mean? I then said my son will need a car within a year and if the Grand Prix dies/ has a part not worth replacing or something instead of getting something used we could get you a Torrent (hoping I can get one with some rebates or long enough that I could get the 3900 in them for 07) and she was like... Well I wanna tow and go camping wtih a small pop-up camper, I am like well if that is what you want better get the forsale sign in the Impala. Was the mean or unfair? Afterall I have wanted a Bonneville since I got my GP 16 years ago and couldn't afford a 90 SSE.

I told her were getting 17inch the non chrome wheels and heated cloth seats lol. She wants the purple color... I am feeling the sliver or white, what is your favorite Torrent color just wondering. I have a bad feeling my GP will go sh*t up sometime real some b/c we have had such good luck with it... LOL Any idea what a good price is on one? Not that I am wishing bad upon my GP, but ummmm something is bound to happen...

Torrent eh? you aint given up your SLE are ya , anyway look for a new '05, I was just at dealers and he said there are noand probably not gonna be rebates for quite awhile but they did do a price adjustment across the whole line....Wondering if Pontiac is going down that same road as Olds myself.

The Chevy Equinox and Pontiac Torrent are pretty nice crossover trucks!

I would buy a Torrent if my Bonnie pukes. I love them in black, I think Torrents look the best in black, sure, it'* a PITA to keep black clean but I strongly recommend chromies and black.

Not a big fan. To each their own.

Yes there are nice... So when my GP goes my wife wants one I think... What will they run (price wise) with 17'* and ummm not leather, moonroof, and uhhh no 6 disc cd changer I want everything eles? I was hoping I could get out for 21-22K. They are nice crossovers if only the had the 3900 VVT in them this year. No gxp rules I doubt Pontiac will go down the same road Olds did. I won't get black to hard to keep clean hey if I think my 49U is wait until I get onyx black! That would be a pain but looks so sweet. I am really considering one, but uhh no way I want the Chevy verison lol, I am a Poncho man! (When the GP goes... Or might want a 98-99 Bonneville SLE/SSE (no supercharger) with low low low low miles! If I got that I would have hard time letting my son drive it lol. Thats the last thing he needs is a motor over 200hp j/k. GXP Rules my SLE is staying trust me after waiting 15 years I think I got what I desevre, but that is what happens when you wait for great things. So glad I didn't get one when I got the Impala cause uhh I wouldn't have gotten my 05 SLE and trust me the SE I would have got wouldn't have the great styling or heated seats or dual climate control nor dual exhuast! THE BONNEVILLE STAYS!
