What car did you come from prior to getting a 5th Gen?

Just curious as too see what everyone was driving prior to getting their 5th gen. I came from a 2013 Focus ST3 with a couple of mods on it. I have had other LS cars which were: '02 Camaro Z28, '00 Corvette, '03 Corvette Z06.

I got to admit that ST was amazing and wanted a taste of the turbo life but the car I was scared to push the limit on was the Z06. That thing was scary fast, too bad it had title problems so it was best to get rid of it.

Anyone care to share?

Nice, my brother is obsessed with those Integras. They are nice cars though. Solstice have always looked good to me. The Saturn Sky counterpart is a bit sexier IMO. Wish they had a faster variant of that car.

the turbo variants were pretty fast5.5 sec.0-60 back in 2006 was not slow by any means.but its surely nice to be able to put the seat further back than i need to and have a decent size trunk.

'09 Pontiac G8 GT. I loved that car and I have almost bought another one a number of times, but when I do it's going to be a Panther black GXP M6 with red/black interior and bone stock. The great thing about G8's was that they were big time sleepers. Nobody expected a 4-door large Pontiac to have any potential, especially rear wheel drive potential.

I wasn't aware they had turbos on some models. I was taking a look at G8s before deciding on the Camaro. Wifey has caught baby fever so the four doors would be useful but still being a little young I think she can wait lol. Black looks great on those cars though.

Previous to the Camaro, I had a Dodge Durango RT.... I actually kinda liked it but once the divorce was finalized I got rid of it and returned to bowties. Before the durango I had a Nissan Maxima and Chevy Silverado which were mine. Really wish I would've kept the truck but fell into the "what the wife wants" thing....
