It's gonna be a sad day when I come home to my balt stuck in the garage due to snow. Sadly that could be this Saturday.

Me neither, snow tires make a world of difference. I drove my balt last winter. I wanted to keep it out of the snow and salt, and keep off the miles I put on it going to school and work, so I bought a Grand Prix as a DD. I've had the car for 3 weeks and have saved the balt 1000 miles so far. Plus it gives me something to work on/restore.

I want either a Vette, a classic V8 muscle car, or a Twin Turbo Supra next.

That's pretty much the exact situation I'm in. I'll have the balt paid off by the time I finish college, then I'll get a house, then start on the project cars after I finish the probably project house.

you're gonna love it in the snow, my old gtp owned winter. it's heavy enough that it actually keeps traction.

with all the problems I've been having with my ss i'd love to have my gtp back right now. 165k miles and it gave me less problems in the 4 years I owned it than this car does in a week.

First week I had my Cobalt, I broke the flex pipe (common, I know).
Second month the shifter (literally) fell apart.
6th month, replaced clutch.
12th month replaced transmission.
13th month replaced shifter cables.

Good times.
