So I've got this car, a 1994 Sunbird. Nothing special but it's got a great V-6 and standard transmission...I like it. I've done some work to it lately; put a new clutch in along with hydraulic clutch cylinders, new gaskets on the bottom end. I also had a new ignition module put in (because it didn't start for a year while I was doing that other stuff). Body is OK...but getting rusty along the bottom...so it won't be long before it all goes to pot. Anyway, I had to take it in for a diagnosis and the list of things wrong with it was shocking. The worst thing is the front wheel bearings...the guy didn't think I would even make it home before the left side seized up. It certainly hasn't sounded good for a while. The quote to make it safe was $1300 and it was $3500 to fix all the problems they found. We had already been thinking of getting a vehicle for my wife....so this jump started the process. Anyway, my exciting news...we are getting a 2001 Chevy Blazer LT. It may not be a new vehicle but for us, this is a huge step up. It's fully loaded...heated 8-way power leather seats...trip computer....push button 4WD with a fancy Auto mode that only engages when needed. I just got the call that our financing was approved and I'm going to pick it up after work. Sorry for the long winded blabbing...but I'm excited.
