Sorry to hear! As hard as it is to lose someone, there's always a silver lining in losing someone that was fighting something.

Your car would look amazing on some of the 6th gen ZL1 wheels in black :yes:  I even like the 5th gen wheels that look similar to what you posted but the "spokes" dont come back towards each other at the barrel, they are the same distance apart all the way.

In white to low bid government agencies and rental car companies.

My question was more rhetorical than serious.  ;)  It is my new work car.  They bought 6 of them and upon first look, I thought they were going to be decent cars.  I got mine yesterday and was immediately unimpressed.  The seat is amongst the most uncomfortable that I've ever sat in.  The road noise is almost unbearable.  The little 1.5 turbo (yes, the exhaust driven supercharger) buzzes as well as any underpowered 4 cylinder ever built.  I pulled in the driveway yesterday with 110 miles on the odometer and smoke, not steam, was coming from the grill.  Something was smoldering.  It didn't do it this morning, but it smells like something is burning.  This is the worst brand new car I have ever driven.  I like it better than the 2001 Taurus I drove for 3 years, but that car was a hand-me-down.  I can't imagine anybody pulling into a Chevrolet dealership and taking one of these cars home with them.  The car I had, which is a 2013 Dodge Avenger, with 164,000 miles on it, is 25 times better even with all those miles.  I've had two of those cars and I have no clue why they got such bad press.  They were the most reliable cars we had in our fleet.  I think I will be driving the year old 4 door Silverado a little more often.

I actually like it

They don't look bad.  Try driving one.  Terrible.  At least I ain't paying for it, except when I buy gas for my personal cars.

Driver to be immediately unimpressed.  The seat shall be amongst the most uncomfortable that I've ever sat in.  The road noise shall be almost unbearable.  The little 1.5 turbo (yes, the exhaust driven supercharger) shall buzz as well as any underpowered 4 cylinder ever built.  Must be 90% US made.

 

Your purchasing department probably has the above in the bid spec.

I'm baffled that the guy with a turbo'd K car fetish is not pleasured by another smokey turbo'd 4 banger budget mobile.  Jealous maybe? 

I'd bet that if you leave it's door open and it says "A door is ajar" you'd love it.  :yes:

So, any details about this new life of yours??   How old is your kid?  Weren't you buying some property/house?

BTW, sleep is totally overrated.  And so is logical thought, job performance, and....uh...ummm.....memory.
