Bah...May not get a Camaro.

I've tried to put it off as long as possible, but the wife and I had the "kid" talk the other day....Camaro's not really kid friendly. We'll probably look at the G8 GTs and possibly the HHR SS about November...Maybe a used 08 CTS...It's stupid that we now have to look for a car to haul a kid around. That's what we bought the ****ed 4 door RAM for, just now we can't afford to drive the mofo! Bah.

If you need the car to haul around the family, you'll be much happier with a 4 door. I'd go with the G8 personally.

G8 or the used CTS...The HHR SS would be a distant third.

I think you'd still be able to have a lot of fun with the G8 GT.

No doubt...Of course, we could just keep the Corolla and I could still get a Camaro. I don't see why we have to have something brand new for a kid. Hell, the first car I remember being in as a kid was an early 80s Nissan/Datsun "Sentra."

Hell's yeah...if the Corolla is still a good reliable car, why not keep that? better on gas I'm sure.

34 mpg last week. Aside from that, kids are messy. It makes a little more sense to use the old car. It's a good car.

Try as hard as possible to keep the Corolla and pick up a Camaro. NO reason to buy a new car for a kid, when, by age 3, they'll have spilled 35 drinks and 6 things of honey mustard all over the cloth and or leather.

yes...kids are messy...keep the mess contained to the old car.

Looks like you have some convincing to do. Good luck.

Well, you can get almost a year out of the car before any little ones will be inside. Besides that, the child will mostly stay in the car seat for a bit. Stop thinking rationally.
