Describe Yourself: Auto Enthusiast

So what if it’s made in Austrailia? It’s an American company and they’re finally back to making a great rear-drive sedan. Besides, enough demand will change that and put a U.S. factory or two back to work. The balance and refinement of this car are every bit a match for BMW’s 5 series for tens of thousands less. The LS3/six-speed manual GXP version next year will be an excellent alternative to the snobbish M5 with its ridiculous I-drive and late un-lamented sequential shifter. The 2009 El Camino-style G8 sport truck and potential sport wagon will round out and re-establish Pontiac as the General’s performance division. If folks can adjust to $4 gas without knee-jerking their way into another 70’s-style deification of 50 horsepower crackerboxes, they can live large without paying German prices.
