Lucky. I wanted the SC more than anything, but my parents wouldnt allow anything they considered "fast". As soon as they heard the word supercharger they said hell no. The SS/NA was the best i could do.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

yea, my dad was scared that i would mess up his credit due to missing payments. i had no credit at the time and didn't want to pay huge interest rates, so having him cosign was the only way to get a good interest rate with decently low payments. not to mention i've had a steady job for 2 years now. been promoted once and up for a raise this month. now i only have 29 months to go until i own my balt.

anyway, congrats on the new SS.

The only reason I even have a Cobalt is I wanted to get a car in my name (1st car I've ever bought from a dealer). My credit was crappy, so I had the choice between very few cars. I'm building my credit while having fun with this 2.2. When I hit 25 (May of 2009), my insurance will go down on any car. That's when I'm trading in my Cobalt for something else. I don't know what yet.

Thats actually a pretty good question to raise. Who thinks the SS/SC is going to be a classic in 20-30 years? I wouldnt be surprised, considering it was an instantly popular car.
