    Why did you get your Pontiac?

    Lots of history you have there with Pontiac and a Trans Am! Most definitely, it's a rare sighting to see a a 70s Grand Am.
  4. Well as the title says "Why did you get your Pontiac?" so why did you? Well for me when I was 16, I bought a 1995 Monte Carlo Z34 for round $3000 I think, drove that till I was almost 18 and at that time my parents convinced me it was an old car and figured I'm going to college next year I don't want to have this breakdown on me and be stranded somewhere so I started car shopping. At this point in time I wanted a 2002ish in that range Camaro but my dad being the kind guy he is said if that was to break down, he's still not coming to get me. Well it makes since I guess cause at the time my main school was gonna be Florida State University and it is a 7 hour drive to Tallahassee. My dad being the GM guy he is said to look at other GM vehicles seeing as the Camaro isn't a new vehicle and he wanted me to buy a new car. I was looking at Cobalts, Impalas, Malibus and pretty much the whole Chevy lineup when finally fate hit me and there was an ad for a G6 instantly switched over to the Pontiac website and bam decided that was my first car choice. So went to the dealership and to make a long story short got a great deal on my brand new 2006 Black G6 GT Coupe for less than about $21k! Which it has been worth every penny to me so far!

    Hobbies

    We know everyone here is crazy about cars and that consumes most our lives but got to have some other hobbies, collections, what-have-you... what do you have? @notallthere, streaking is not a hobby... Myself, I like technology, music and gaming. Technology I would say is my first hobby and my daily life depends on it as I am a software engineer. Keeping up with technology is a passion more than anything and what heavily translated into a career. I'll program at work for 8 hours a day and come home to program some more, it's a vicious cycle . Outside of technology, I find myself always around music whether it is myself playing (7 instruments 😛 ) or listening (in the car, at work, whenever), I am always surrounded by music. Classic Rock is my jam, been to some great concerts too: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 6 times, Ringo Starr 5 times, Paul McCartney 5 times, Moody Blues 4 or 5 times, Styx 2 times, Lynyrd Skynyrd 2 times, and a lot of other bands.

    Not very smart of him. Believe I heard something similar to that bullet thing before. That’s just insult to injury lol Guiness and Harp are my favorites of the we’ll known Irish beers. Hophouse is another goodie.

    Oh what fun they must have had... Ireland is absolutely amazing. People are extremely nice and welcoming. Amazing views and amazing beer. I'm half Irish and fully enjoyed myself. I'd like to go back.

    I've been to the 4 corners and very extensively those 4 states when I was younger living in Utah. Had cousins in Colorado and an Aunt in Arizona so we used to do a lot of driving exploring through those states and their surrounding states. Pretty much in New Mexico, other than the Natural Parks, the airport may be the only thing to see there. Well, at least when I visited Been to England and China as well! Also Ireland Wow! That's crazy about China. I assume the government was the ones beating them up? I feel like we may have talked about this but what year was that? The Great Wall was absolutely amazing. There were snow flurries when I was there and that just made it better. I went with my high school band and we actually played our national anthem at the wall. Pretty surprised we didn't get arrested even in 2007. Will keep you informed! Attending a wedding up in Minnesota this year in September, about as close as my plans are getting me to Michigan as of yet.

    Nice, traveling is good. I have "been" to 44 states. I put "been" in quotes because it's either driven through or had a plane connection. Washington state, Oregon and the Dakotas are the remaining ones. That would be pretty dang awesome! Thanks for the invite! I've only been to Park City at Utah. We left Utah when I was 7 so right on the cusp of me learning to do winter sports. Been back a few times but never to ski/snowboard as it was summer. That sounds like a blast of a tour though!
  14. I like me some tasteful chrome as well.

    Dang, Frosty has been everywhere . I still would like to get up to the Big House for a game. Not a Mich fan by any measure but I hear the stadium is something to be a part of. Had 2 really good friends that did grad school at Mich but never got up there for a game. I was actually born in Utah, loved the scenery, the parks, everything. Minus living in the snow.

    Big deal of adding or subtracting from value?

    DropBox was one I looked into on their IPO day. They wanted too much though for a service which likely is decreasing so I didn’t end up buying. Seems they’re still hovering around that price. GM has been good to me so has Brown Forman (parent company of Jack Daniels). I’m really mad I sold my Marriott stock early last year as they’re pretty much gold right now. I’m waiting on a split there to get back in.
