We have an 8 month old baby. My wife drives a Honda Pilot (really awesome family car IMO) and the Camaro. I pick up the kiddo from daycare every day in the Camaro. Throw the car seat in the back with a base no problem and yesterday hit the mall afterwards and fit our full sized Graco stroller in the trunk.

So really I don't NEED to change anything right now. The only considerations really are 1) I've had no real problems or worries in the winter yet, especially with my winter tires. But it becomes a bigger consideration when I'm thinking of driving around my child. and 2) eventually we may have another child and then I just couldn't swing it.

What is out there that looks good, has 300hp, and is in a reasonable price range? Does that even exist?
Infiniti G37 Sedan.
2014 SS Sedan
2014 Impala

this! I really hate the front of the newer models.. thumbs up for everything else...

i'd go impala, ATS or sti.. i'd have to take a hard look at the magnum.. i really don't like station wagon looks, but they do a good job on it..

i wish they had more power in the malibus.. people look at me weird when i say i like the Malibu styling over the impala

When is the "Chevrolet SS" supposed to be here? That's going to fit this bill pretty well I'd imagine. I have heard outrageous pricing on that thing tho. (base starting at $45k)

I had a Charger as my company car..... that thing was awesome. I loved it.

My wife drives an Avalon, nice car.

Next for her will be some kind of cross over thing
(I have a GMC 2500 Crew Cab Duramax/Allison)

We may disagree on sports teams and dairy products, but at least we both knew IOM was the only choice for paint.

PS: post a picture of your dovetail spoiler i see in your sig. i've been eyeing one for awhile. which did you go with?



Back on topic, I'm 100% behind the Hummer H1 idea.
