Few of us in here plan on never ditching our Cobalts. For no more than they are worth they aren't worth selling.

I'd sell mine today but the private party value is like 5k tops so it's worth more to me to just keep it.

Still looks decent I guess:

Mine's a daily driver at this point and nothing more. The only money I put into it are for maintenance and needed repairs.

No point in getting rid of my heavily modified POS. Nobody wants it anyway.

Plan on keeping both of mine as well. The ss will be classic one day and ill pass it down to my kids, the ls is always there as the backup dd for when Merica' has issues. Hoping I can acquire a 05 ss and a tc sedan one day to round out my preferred collection. I have to finish paying the ss first before I dive into buying anymore though, otherwise you will be reading my obituary.

They already are classics IMO.

I was at a restaurant last year and had mine cleaned and freshly detailed. Looked just like the pic I posted.

This guy walking out couldn't believe how good of condition it was in. He didn't know Chevy even made a Supercharged SS version of a Cobalt lol.

These were HOT cars back in 2005-2010. Then the Camaro came out and people either lost interest or stopped caring about the Cobalt SS's.

Now that our cars are more rare (especially ones that are clean and stock) people are starting to take notice again.

I sold both mine in the last year. I had my coupe since day one in 2009. It was a fun 10 years but it was time to move on.

That was a good run, 10 years is a good deal of time to keep a car these days.

I've had mine for 12 years. It's an 06 and I bought it with 15,000 miles on it for $10,500 in 2007.

I'm surprised KBB hasn't shown up at your door with agents yet.
