2002 SC1
2005 VUE 2.2L
Default Flying Astra

I suppose this is another one of the options GM has decided not to bring over in the Astra during it's introduction.

Why is GM stifling this car in North America?

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

I don't know which cliche to use here

"This looks shopped, I can tell from the pixels."
"But does it get good MPG?"
"I'm not buying an imported Opel."
"I'm not buying a metal Saturn."
"I'm not buying a hatch, make it in a coupe or sedan!"
"Looks like an idiot driving, notice the lack of a blinker while spinning in the air."

But the best cliche I can add is:
"Where we're going, we don't NEED roads!"
[where is Mr. Fusion on that thing, anyway?]

...
still rolling

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
