One more wagon, my breadwagon

This is my 2008 HHR SS. Somehow I had found myself in a 1.8 T Jetta that had a whole host of electronic gremlins, and a transmission that was starting to get iffy. I had been looking around for another car and had been on a few test drives, but nothing was seeming like it would be much better than the Jetta for one reason or another.

Since I first saw a pic of an orange one in a magazine, I thought they looked pretty sweet. After reading http://jalopnik.com/334563/chevrol… I saw a turbo breadwagon for sale a town or so away, I knew I had to go check it out. I had been keeping my eye on it, and over the course of several months, it had been dropping in price. A test drive, some hemming, hawing, and some negotiation I ended up taking it home. It has been a great car. Lots of space, solid power (260 hp and tq), three pedals, and under the radar.

My favorite question I get about it: "what kind of PT Cruiser is that?"

Some people love it when they see it, others not so much. Either way, it puts a smile on my face every time the boost builds.
