Should I Buy an SS?

Pretty much since day 7 of owning my LS... I have hated it and wanted an SS ever since. I didn't care much about cars until I started browsing cobalt forums and then I was hooked!

Anyways... Current stage in life is
2007 LS cobalt Paid off 100% 34k Miles on it little paint damage from eggs -.- and scratches!
About to finish my Associates degree in Science (general degree at a 2 yr school)
22 Years old, Still living at home but ready to move out after this year at school whether its off to tech school, tech training or going full time job.

I want to live on my own right now, which is pretty expensive.. But I REALLY want to own a Cobalt SS... Its pretty much my dream car and everytime I browse these forums it just makes me want one more and more..

Id prefer a turbo around 07-08.... I would probably trade mine in on it as much as it would pain me to do... Or sell mine and then buy it.

So any advice?

I kinda want to just get my "childhood dream" out of the way when I can afford it and not be swamped with bills etc.

lol, I know the feeling. See new car in sig.!! lol

If you just want to buy the car then get the 08+, if you want to mod and build a monster get a 06 and build the piss out of it and turbo. You will be bigger, faster, stronger than all 08+ SS's.

Who cares if it's unmolested, you are about to rip the thing to the ground and build it back up!

What's your budget, if you get a turbo ss you can have 300whp for around $800.If you get a supercharged balt you will have a weaker suspension and spend maybe $1,500 to get 280whp.

I recommend getting a turbo balt, cause if ya wanted throw a big turbo and clutch and have 400whp for a lot let than modding a sc to achieve that.

Do waste time building a turbo balt, chances are it's gonna fail or never run right!
