after seeing what happened to syp's car, it got me thinkin what if after my warranty is up and i blew my motor what would i get next?
dont get me wrong, i LOVE my GP but dont plan on keeping it forever.
when my warranty is up i may wanna get something else. . i still have a little over a year with my GMPP extended warranty, and was kicking around the idea of something else other than a GP (blasphemy!) since the winters around here royally SUCK! i was thinking along the lines of an EVO or WRX AWD. .
the Subaru's with exhaust and blow off valve sound great in my opinion. .
i love the newer GP's but im not a fan of four door cars. . i have no use for four doors.
i was driving past max madsen mitsubishi the other day and saw a screaming yellow EVO calling my name. . dealership prices suck!
i really really like the 350Z's(especially the burnt orange color), but they gotta be a b***h to drive around in the snow. .thats open for argument, but i sure as hell wouldnt wanna drive one around when its snowing hard out. i dont have a garage either so having TOO nice of a car is inviting a whole other set of problems. ie; thieves,vandals..etc.
GTO's are awesome, but are still too costly for me and just like the 350Z's RWD. so it would be no fun in the snow. .and im not at all a fan of trucks. Lightnings are cool and all, but its still a big a** truck IMO.
the way i see it, SRT-4's, EVO's and WRX's are an all around good auto for Chicagoland driving. (putting flame suit on) and im not a fan of any ricer type auto either..i dont consider Subaru's a ricer, EVO's maybe..
food for thought.

considering Monte Carlo's are two doors and are s/c , that may be a plausable next one also. you can get into a used one for a very reasonable price too . .
i LOVE the idea of having a sleeper though. like a turbo'd GT GP or Monte.

you can get GTOs with under 10k miles for under 20 FYI, i dont know what your definition of expensive is- but thats pretty damn cheap.

and the traction control system works like a charm, i cant get the thing to even begin going sideways with it on.

I've wanted a Avalanche for some time now. Rented a TrailBlazer not a bad ride either. But right now nothing thrills me enough to sell the GP and start makeing payments. Can't see it being a toyota or honda though. Also I'm about 2 to 2 1/2 years from getting a demo if I can keep my current pace up. So stop looking at dealers and start looking at Carmax.com and letting me know what yoy want.....lol

Does this statement not make sense to anyone else either? I didn't know they made evo's and wrx's in a coupe version.

Keeping the GTP as long as possible.........new trans/susp/exhaust/etc.....

Car is still in great shape but if it goes im thinking a small truck like a Frontier extended cab or something.

Then I can do some side jobs and earn a little more money here and there.

After the TA, id like to upgrade to a Z06.........but thats at least 5 years away.

The 2-door Impreza 2.5RS must be new for this year, because since 2002 there have only been sedans available. Personally, I plan on keeping my GTP for quite a while (I just bought it!) but after that I might buy a GXP or a Charger R/T. I love sport sedans.

i wonder if the reason behind wrx's that you guys claim isnt all that good in the snow is cause they're running perofrmance radials?
