My Camaro transformed into a pickup and a Sonic!

Just got this little Sonic for my wife yesterday. Had to do it because she has a hard time getting into my Silverado pickup.







I like the little thing! Fun to drive and 40 MPG! The front end reminds me of a 70 Z-28.

My pickup is pretty nice, too.



I must be getting old.

No, just the stock engine. Still goes pretty good. The Turbo would be even better, but more expensive.

my girlfriend was looking at them a few months ago - wanted to test drive the turbo 6spd hatchback, but they didn't have any turbos on the lot

Getting back to the Sonic, I like it because of the 5 star safety rating. It has 10 air bags. If that thing ever gets wrecked, it transforms into a marshmellow!

We had a Sonic at our last autocross, placed about 35th out of 55, but it was the first time for the driver as well, so it has potential.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
