Default Phish and I went to the dealer

NM the title, forgot to change my settings when i made this album...

2005 SLE and 2005 GXP. Notice how the SLE has the older 00+ spoiler, not the nascar styled one, and WHOOPS the GXP in mileage. GP'* have atleast 3 different tips now, 1 GT and 2 GTP styles. I like the new one.







And the Rally Aztek.... None of this helps rallying... The front suspension is lowered from stock specs (even less clearance), has a chrome tip (weight on nondrive wheels), and has a badge (whoop de do).

The 3 Meg shots are detailed enough to make it out. That GXP is only $4k less then the Caddy. But the caddy is SOOOOO much more.

I agree that the "Rally" Aztec is pointless...but there is no way that the "chrome tip" is going to have a noticible effect on performance by putting "weight on non-drive wheels."

Also aren't some/most Aztec'* AWD? I'm not sure just asking...

I'm betting 05 SLE sales will jump up 10%+ with the cleaner, more agressive look.

Satire, sarcasm, etc. It'* a friggun aztek, and it'* a horible spot for exhaust, let alone a bright and visible one!

Speaking of which. . . Snell Motors called me. They want me to come in tomorrow morning and deal on the Impala. I mentioned Pontiac already gave me an offer and they are ready to meet or exceed any deal Pontiac gives me on either a Bonneville or a Regal. So thats what I'm doing tomorrow. Maybe test drive a GXP if I can convince Marsha to give me the keys

Rally Aztec

vs.

I wanna see those two in a rally race.

Asstech'* claim to fame is Versatrack AWD but I think it is an option on the cheapie model.
