View Full Version : Out with the old...

...and in with Big Blue!!! I don't have pics of the old van but let's put it this way...I had a '95 Ply Voyager. It was marroon and faded...with the clear-coat peeling off the hood and roof. It was in an accident that pushed the right side back about 6" from the front headlight to the back of the side (sliding) door. The accident bent a tie rod, broke the strut support and the shock stud pushed through the mounting plate. The front end hopped when you stepped on the gas from a stopslight and I became creative when I needed to make a new headlight lense...with Plexiglass, cordless drill, decking screws and a heat gun...lol.
Needless to say, it was unsafe to drive when the right rear wheel cylinder blew out. This is what I replaced her with....

Ah a pontiac aztec, not much for the looks but looks like it has a nice system, but a good step up from a voyager

um...ok...and then 'thanks!'......lol

how much did this cost?

$310/Month with an 18% finance fee. Yeah, that's high but not as high as it could have been. My credit score isn't exactly 'stellar'......lol....

Family of 5; 2 of which are almost my size....the G6 wouldn't lug my food from shopping, let alone us and stuff...lol.

Thanks. The oldest daughter's BF is also a mechanic for GM but being that this is covered under their bumper to bumper...if it farts wrong, it's going back to the dealer....lol. Like I said, all I really needs is a trailer hitch which I'm going to have installed by UHaul. Class III is all I need and they sell them for $130+install (I guess) and for $5 extra I get the lifetime waranty for the hitch.

I actually told the lady that if she had a 1970 VW bus with a peace sign painted on it...I'd take it, so long as it was mechanically sound...

I hate Aztecs personally. But as long as you like it, that's all that matters. Nice step up from the minivan. :)

Well, I had my heart set on the 07 Suburban 4x4 but at $480/month, it wasn't destined to be mine -.-

It's not as bad as I thought or even as it seems. The 6 cyl has some good punch, shifts nicely, fully loaded with power everything, cruise, tilt, hatch...
Paint is flawless and it seats all 5 of us with plenty of room. I wish it were the AWD model but beggars can't be choosers. Trailer hitch is next so I can pull my paintball, camping and hunting gear along

IMO its ugly, but if it runs good and its functional thats all that counts when ya got a fam. Btw looks like ya go a stain under that speaker :-p. ummmmm i expected you to live in the middle of no wehre like isolated, from everyone, not somewhere with parking meters. speaking of a VW bus i seen one in the paper for sale calling your name...i bet the daughters would love that haha. Looks like your happy about your new car :-)

A buddy of mine bought one of those brand new when they first came out. He got the camping package that came with a tent and air mattress specially made to fit in the back. We made fun of him at first, but when we went camping it fit all 5 of us comfortably, plus all our gear. And when a storm came up and blew our tent over, he stayed nice and dry on an air mattress in the back of his Aztec.

I think its a sweet ride. Don't expect too much love from the kids around here though. Most of them are still driving their mom's second-hand honda, but show them a picture of anything other than a sports car or a tricked out truck and they crucify you for your "bad" (more like practical) taste.

Much love for GM too. Hope they stay afloat until I'm in the car market again.

Why would GM sink? They are the best company ever!!!!! Every farm truck we have is a gm. nothing else could float the boat.
