OK, so if you're a car guy like I am, you've probably heard about the Pontiac Solstice and its platform-mate, the Saturn Sky. These two cars interest me quite a bit. GM hasn't built a car like this in...well..I don't think they've ever built cars quite like this. OK, maybe the Fiero, but that doesn't really count. as it's not a convertible. Seriously though, these are pretty sweet looking little roadsters. High-output engines, solid suspension, sexy looks and a bargain pricetag. Seriously, what's not to like?
Oh yeah, I forgot. GM's building them.
If you listened to the press you'd think General Motors invented Satan with all the bad press they've gotten recently. Now I'm not saying they don't deserve a few rotten apples for some of the rotten apples they've dumped on the unwitting American buying public, but sometimes I really wish they'd stuff their bias down their pieholes and take an honest look at what GM's offering these days. They keep getting better and better, and while they may not yet be the best, if they continue to improve it'll only be a matter of time.
I just wanted to say that.
