Thinking About Trading for an Ss Turbo or Hhr Ss

So the last few months I have been checking out the differences between the cobalt ss turbo and the hhr ss turbo... and seeing as this april (If all goes right) or june I could trade ol' blue in for an ss... problem is I like both... anyone have any ideas or suggestions for me? The reason is I have been thinking about doing some modifications to ol' blue, however it would be easier to start with an already turbo'd motor and would cost the same... I would prefer to buy an ss sedan but those are hard to find... because they didn't make that many of them... I also like the fact that the HHR SS is a hatchback and that is a gigantic plus in my mind, alot more versatile

Thoughts?

My personal opinion is I'd go with the SS turbo'd cobalt. I love the look of those, plus the wheels they come with ;) but at the same time like you said the sedan is hard to find. but me personally, being a snowboarder. all I need is something that i can throw a roofrack in and a few friends, with bags in the back so both work. depending on what you want to carry, you can always get a thule basket for the roof. given if your closer to starting a family, or do road trips with friends, or anything along those lines I'd get the HHR ss and be more unique with mods on that. (personally havent seen 1 modded HHR here where I live.) but the main reason I'd go with the SS turbo'd balt is because Here, we are surrounded by mustang owners and neon owners that beak us, and given that I drive a 2006 LT I can't really do much to shut them out, (except the fact that I have Halos and LED taillights, I look fancier then them in the dark.) We have 2 guys in the community that shut half of them up on the track with their balts. (both turbo'd.)

Thats my opinion. I'd go SS turbo Balt.

Its one or the other. I would go the the SS. I almost bought one but I dont feel like driving like 600 miles to get one so I decided to keep my car and continue modding it. It may not be fast but at least it looks good and has ok power.

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

The lnf still beats out lots of newer cars. And they are easy to make a lot of power. I would say it's more of a preference of which body style you like. The hhr is like a super sleeper.. I just love the look of the balts with the ss kit
