I'm almost ten years old and I always talk to my dad, (coolcaddy), about what car I should get. I like Pontiacs, but I also really like the Saturn VUE. The deal is that if I go to college, he'll get me a GM car around $15,000.

I voted for the Pontiac Vibe. My dad says he won't buy me a GTO because I can't have a sports car. :plasma:

LOL :lol: you are very young but what about a Chevy Cobalt? Or a Pontiac Pursuit? You can maybe get the Sport version ;)

These cars might be history in 6 years.
Lots of new stuff coming out these days.
Hard to know what really is available at
the moment, let alone in a year or two.

My dad got me a Saturn SL2 as my first car. I learned to drive in it, and took it over as my main car when I got my license.
Drove the car will 2000 when i got my 9-5 Aero. :lol:

Yup. Just to be clear, the conversations we have about which car he'll actually get are pretty much just for fun, precisely because of what you point out here; but the offer is legit--that is, I'll buy him a new GM car and pay for his gas, insurance, lodging, etc. if he goes to college. That's what my dad did for me... B)

BTW, I picked the Vibe. Looks like good, reliable transportation with some decent room and plenty of "hipness" for a college kid. :woot2:

What about a used CTS?
I was actually thinking of adding that to the poll but I thought I was already pushing it with the GTO. :bounce:

GTO,

I doubt you'd have much trouble talking him into getting you a mint-condition Chrysler Imperial. Heck, he might even have a spare one to give you,

:D

Hey, you might got something there, Ghranky. When he's old enough to get his new car, I can say, "here ya' go, son--a beautiful 1983 Frank Sinatra Edition Imperial in perfect shape. They don't make 'em like this anymore!"...

...to which he'll reply, "Aw gee whiz, dad, I wanted a GTO!"

...to which I will say, "Right. And doesn't 'GTO' stand for 'Get The Ontario-built car'? Imperials were made in Canada, you know".

...to which he will say, "No dad. The GTO is a Pontiac. 'Guess I'll just take your old Saturn to college".

...to which I will say, "Bummer, kid. Can I have the Imperial?" B)

Not really on topic but I recently met a guy that was DIEING to get his hands on an Imperial of that generation. Weird.

Vibe, then some day he could add the GMPP supercharger! :D But still get reasonable mileage.
