Skyman and SkyLady's New Ride

Hi All, I have been out of the loop for a while, just to let you know I am not gone, and I am still doing good even without a new job yet.
My Wife Sandra has found work and that is helping out. The other day we were driving our Sky and spotted a car for sale, we stopped, looked it over and drove it. We kind of liked it so I made him an offer, I didn't think he would take it without Haggling but he did.. I was supprised, so this is what we have now...Although it is not a new Camaro, I think it will do for now.

it's a 2000 Sunfire GT 2.4 150HP, power everything, White leather interior, it has 108,000 miles on it. It has a few little issues but nothing that keeps it off the road. it runs great. I think I can fix anything that neest attention without any problem. The main reason I got it was because with No more Saturn Skys being built, I want to keep our Sky with as low mileage as possible. So we can still use it for trips to the beach and keep the miles low by driving the Sunfire around here.
What do you all think?

Very nice find man. I am with you on the Saturn Sky issue... my fiance just barely got hers; it being a late 09. I hope they support the platform for a good bit though when stuff does eventually wear out...

Good to see you on here again... I had been out of the loop for some time til recently when I picked up my Camaro at Champion. To tell you how busy I was (and everyone will gasp at this one), my camaro sat up at the dealership for three weeks awaiting for me to pick it up. But in those three weeks I was running around like crazy getting www.decepticonmotormaster.com done. It was basically done for the Abingdon Cinemall Transformers premiere, but there is always stuff to be done. Motormaster WILL be in the Funfest Parade Friday, so I expect to see you there!

Yeah, but, three weeks... dang... just sitting up there... on display...I'm probably going to get rotten veggies and fruit thrown at me by camaro5 members for that one...

Try applying for a position with Volkswagen in Chattanooga - they're building a new assembly plant there and if you could get hired while they're still building it, there's no other experience like it!
