New Daily Driver
#1
tach 
Thought I would share my new daily driver. Picked her up off the showroom floor last Wed. It's a 2014 Chevy Angel SS sports sedan with a 415hp LS3 under the hood. I can't express to you how much fun this car is to drive! Of course it's not really a Chevy but a Holden Commodore. In fact I have the Holden emblems and center caps on order already. Besides the front Brembo's and throaty exhaust this thing is a sleeper all the way. Most people have no clue what it is.

-Like a 4 door Camaro with the base level Vette engine. They are supposed to limit the production to about 4000 per year.
And it is supposed to be phased out by '17. Interesting. Try and take it to an open track event near you. I bet you'd have a blast. The real wheel drive and the torque/power would be fun with the 6 speed trans.

Stay aware of those specialty speed rated, summer tread Bridgestone tires in the winter snow and ice...
Still sounds like a fun family car/driver.

Thanks! Yep, this one is #2694 of 3502. Need to look into Virginia International Raceway or Virginia Motorsports Park for drag. After watching some vids of other guys taking it out I've got that itch. Big Grin

I actually got the dealership to throw in a set of Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S tires since winter is coming. Would say I wouldn't have to worry about too much snow around here but if this winter is like last winter I may have her sitting in the garage some.

It'll be interesting to see what they do past 2016. The 2015 is going to have the MAG ride and a six speed manual. But they haven't even announced a price for the 2015's yet. GM isn't trying to sell a lot of them for some reason. IMO it's the best car in their lineup.

Looking for a low mileage Pontiac g8 gt for the same reason. They hold value really well. an 09 still goes for about 20K. I will have one soon. I like it.

Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

How about one with 7,685 miles?
Not sure if it's sold or not but I could check for you.

That is certainly low and a GXP is usually even more pricey depending on how proud the owner is. Do you know what kind of price range it was in? I just turned my Regal turbo lease in today and my Mustang is supposed to be my daily driver. Hope it is finished Monday.
