Pontiac is dead

I don’t think my dad has owned a non-Pontiac in my lifetime. Not anymore.

Speaking automotively, I’m loving this new Ford. Looks like a big Mini:

    It’s called the Ford Flex.

    Fucking blows. My first car was an ’88 Pontiac Grand AM. And that shit was the fucking truth. I would buy it again if I could. Also, now I can actually afford to get things fixed when they inevitably break…

    York, the two door or the four?

    We had an 89 Grand Am that ran forever.

    Four door.

    It was fucking majestic. Solid steel. I bought it for $800 in 2002 and it lasted until 2006 before the engine broke down. But we donated it to charity and they fixed it up and someone is STILL driving it.

    I spent about $1200 on parts and fixing it in the 4 years. It was awesome.

    Unfortunately, I found the car I want today on Craigslist:

    The Flex looks like a lunch box on wheels
