Assuming I've got $10k equity (which in this market I don't) Even if I'm looking at low mileage used or including incentives on a new one, it would be insane to go $40-55k in debt when our country is at a standstill.Negative WTI. Uhh, how about you move up the Raptor purchase?
Is it a GTO or G8? I'm not aware of either coming in a dark green color. The SS definitely had a dark green, though. Nonetheless, the LS2 or LS3 in the GTO, G8, and SS have the best exhaust systems - even better than the Camaro or Corvette. Menacing is a great word for it even in stock form. With headers, high flow cats, and X-pipe, it sounds ridiculous even into stock mufflers. It's not raspy and annoying, but deep and growly.My next door neighbor has a dark green Pontiac GTO G8, and it sounds pretty menacing when he takes it out (sunny days only ). He also recently bought a black Buick Regal TourX wagon. Very sleek, and hard to believe it's a Buick. He replaced the Buick emblem on the rear with the Opel ornament. Told him it was sharp and he said "they were practically giving them away; couldn't believe it".
It's intrigued me since I first saw the concept five-ish years ago, too. I'm concerned that it would be too small, though. Sometimes the 5' bed of my RL doesn't suffice with certain loads and one that would be even smaller would be hard to accept. The extending feature of the concept was enticing, though. I'm hoping they keep that and make other unique features to make it sell just like the original RL. I don't think I'll be able to even look at the Santa Cruz, though, because the cab space in my RL is getting smaller by the day as my child gets bigger by the day - and possibly one more on the way soon (God willing).The Hyundai Santa Cruz intrigues me. Today my '09 RL rolled over 100,000 miles so I may just wait 15 more years.
I'm not familiar with the Pontiac lexicon, but I'm pretty sure it's a GTO. His vanity license is "GOAT". It doesn't come out often, but pretty sure it's dark green, unless it's a black that gets a greenish cast in sunlight. Will pay attention next time.Is it a GTO or G8?

The Regal, Opel Insignia, and Holden VZ Commodore (not really a Holden as it's not built in Australia) are all basically the same vehicles. The Tour X is a very unique and capable vehicle for sure. Americans just simply don't want wagons en masse anymore. Hard to believe the discounts on those things. For $25k, you get A LOT of vehicle. Even if it is still a Buick.
I just went from a odyssey to a ridgeline I loved my odyssey till my little sister stole it and crashed it but bought it 2nf owner never any issues good choice for familysas family grows, I believe, in about 2 year I might trade-in mine for an Odyssey... it would be sad, but necessary.
I had a '76 Triumph Magenta TR6 with a removable hardtop. My son totaled it while street racing some old guy (me) in a CRX Si. It all turned out better than it should have.A classic triumph tr6, that way I can be assured of oil leaks and issues to keep me busy, cause right now I’m bored and have already done all the hacks.
In my late teens I had a "dream job" - valet parking at an airport parking lot located a mile away from the airport. Got to drive many cool cars of the day (1974-75), and man did I love the couple of TR6's I got to drive!I had a '76 Triumph Magenta TR6 with a removable hardtop.

you can get one here...sort of.Just bought my Ridgeline a few days ago, so I wouldn't trade it. I wanted a vehicle to do truck things, but I didn't want a "truck". I didn't want hideous fuel mileage, truck handling, truck ride, truck expense, or not being able to park in my garage because a truck is too big and tall. If I had my way, I'd have bought a Holden Ute with the 6.2L Corvette engine in it....but sadly...they don't sell them in the US. Boo!!
So I guess...if it were sold here....I'd trade my RL for a Ute (yes...this picture was taken as the Ute did a track day).

For the last two years, Left Hand Utes have been importing Utes into the U.S. and converting them to LEFTHAND DRIVE! Our Left Hand Utes are converted by stripping the Ute to bare body. We replace the firewall and rebuild the car from components using all AMERICAN standard parts from the Pontiac...www.lefthandutes.com
This company pieces them together from imported Utes and domestic Chevys and Pontiacs.
