    All HHR's for 09 have the window switches moved to the door, so that is an old photo. Upper 30's in mileage? I think that's a type.

    18" Polished Cobalt SS/SC wheels, LED tails, Recon 48 LED running board lights/signals, Turbo Tech rear 1" sway bar 35w 5K HID's. Upgraded to larger SS front brakes.

    OMFG Trailblazer is so old school. The dash looks like it is made out of Dark Knight body armour. I want one.



    HHR SS is kinda cool, which is ironic since I usually have a natural aversion to retro thanks to Chryslers abhorrent PT Cruiser and the poorly executed Prowler (ie drive train et al.).
    Evil begets evil Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger.

    The trailblazer needs to go now, why even bother with an 09. There is now way this will sell well at all this year expecially once the traverse is out.

    I see the Silverado still has those ugly blobs on the ends of the front bumper ugly.

    The Trailblazer can out-tow the Traverse by a good margin and I believe it also has a higher ground clearance.

    But with the economy tanking and gas prices rising, I don't know that enough Trailblazer fans are around to justify keeping it. Buy an old pickup to tow your boat and a Traverse for everything else.

    Only thing I've ever had to tow with the Envoy is the Sonoma when I got it stuck in the mud in our front lawn...

    Already considering a Traverse in a few years to replace the Envoy if gas doesn't let up. I may have to extend the garage though.

    The Colorado is getting the V8? I thought that was pushed back.

    Damn, that traverse is a good looking vehicle.

    Yeah, it was pushed back a year ago.

    Are we going to be able to get the traverse with body color trim at the bottom instead of that ugly plasticy looking stuffz? Otherwise, its pretty sharp.
