Please vote! + Parkcrastination? + 1985 SS!?

Thrilled to announce that Tommy (Lil Red) made it to the finalist round of the Search For A Champion Sparks Plug Amateur Group Contest!  Getting into this round means a $1,000 award with other perks for this racing season; a win now would mean a $10,000 grand prize.  So, will you please vote for him once a day until 03/23/2016?

Probably a good idea to proofread, otherwise you might condone sinning at a hymn sing:

Which of these 2 would you save: Corsica or Vega?

Speaking of the Vega, when is the last time you have seen its cousin, the Pontiac Astre?

Anyone suffer from parkcrastination!?

Bet you thought the 2003 SS Concept Car & the 2013-2016 SS sedan were the 1st 2 SSs ever available.  Wrong!  This is the 1985 Shoebox Special SS, which I made:

I love 2-tones & this is a cool Colonnade Pontiac Grand Prix!

BTW, for those in Illinois: why are people complaining about paying a late fee for the license renewal sticker?  I know the state is not sending out reminders anymore, but it is your responsibility to pay on time!  What happened to personal responsibility & NOT depending on the government!?  Where is my reward for getting mine on time!?

I knew a guy circa '87 with a 350 Vega. Fastest car I've ever seen. He would tape a $100 bill to the dash. If you could get it before he hit third gear, you could keep it. I never knew of anyone that got it.

I hate Chevy Corsicas. If I never saw another I wouldnt care. The 2 tone Grand Prix is sharp. Thats an anniversary edition of some sort.

It certainly ain't nothing to look at, but I had a 90 Corsica with a 3.1L in it. It was reliable as hell, and the most surprised looks I ever got was when I would light up the front tires. Nobody expects that from a lowly Corsica. That said, I wouldn't go through the effort of restoring one.

My parents had a 1990 Corsica LT Hatchback, malachite metallic in color.  It was very reliable, too, & Dad wasn't so sure they should get rid of it when they did.  A single Mom bought it for her teenage son as his 1st car ... it didn't last long after that.  SMH.

Yes, I think it is....  Really would love to see it in person!

LOL!  That'd be a fun challenge to accept. Wink
