Welcome to One Car Garage, in which I choose a manufacturer or class of vehicle, and you decide choose single vehicle (no matter how old, no matter how exclusive) to live with for the rest of your life. This is your only vehicle, and all expenses are paid for, including price of entry, insurance, gas, etc.
I'm sorry Oppo. Sorry that I've practically abandoned you. After I decided to slow down the OCG posts I got busy with work, then took a trip out to Denver to visit my dad, but more that, I got lazy. I've decided to get back at it though. We're going to pick things up with Pontiac.
It's kind of funny; I've been pushing this one farther and farther back, because I'm so freaking torn on what to choose. The two choices I'm torn between are the 2004 to 2006 GTO and...yes...the Aztek. As this is Oppo I'm sure some of you will understand my reasoning. For both. On one end of the spectrum is a car with a wonderful powerplant bolted to a RWD chassis all stuffed into a beautiful sleep. On the other end is a practical AWD SUV of sorts that is no doubt gaining a reputation as a cult classic (with the help of a certain hit television series). Unfortunately I have to throw one of these vehicles to the wind. My Pontiac of choice is going to be the GTO. If I could get a 6.0 with a manual transmission in Cosmos Purple, I'd definitely be satisfied. Oh, but I'd want to do away with the garish hood that GM thought would help sell these things to ostentatious Americans. I'll take the flat hood from 2004.
