LocoPuyo's new car

Dear Knights,

A few days ago I bought a new car, a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT.  I like it a lot.  Here are a few pictures, click to enlarge.

I got the premium package (leather seats, etc.) and the 18"all-season tires.  A lot of them come with 19" summer only tires which would not be a very logical purchase on the eve of winter in Minnesota.   It has a 362 HP 6 Liter V8 engine which gets 15/24 mpg city/highway. The interior is very nice and can seat 4 very comftorably, it can seat 5.  I'm fairly tall and can fit in the back seat behind the driver's seat adjusted to how I sit with plenty of head and leg room.  The sound system is excellent and has plenty of power.  It has a 6 cd changer, which can also play mp3 cds, AM/FM/XM radio, and an auxillary jack for mp3 players.  It has a nice LCD display in the center that controls everything and is very comftorable.  All the audio can also be controlled on the steering wheel, which is very nice and a reason I burned a few mp3 cds instead of using my mp3 player.  It doesn't have bluetooth to connect to my phone or a navigation system which would have been nice but aren't available.  I can make calls and get turn by turn directions with Onstar though.  

Sincerely,

LocoPuyo

Sweet car. I watched part of an episode of the new Knight Rider yesterday, you should have tried to get those options as well.

Daymonster said...

locopuyo said...

I know it's annoying, I need a new server.

Pablito Neal said...

nice car, if the site is down, maybe it's because you were getting too many visitors?

locopuyo said...

Thanks. The server goes down all the time, it isn't from a heavy traffic load, the hardware is just bad.

Squatting Bear said...

locopuyo said...

White Sox clearly paid off Tigers' relievers.

Sweet car. It's weird hearing you having to think about cold weather for the tires.

Dammer said...

Odds of Twins winning on the road in a VERY hostile environment with Blackburn starting the game and Morneau slumping? Slim.

Rear wheel drive + Dodge Dakota + parking outside of apartment building + going to work at 5:45 AM + Minnesota + winter + even odd parking - good city snow removal - remote start - plow on front of truck = GUTROT!!!!
