Sold the Ranger

Ok everyone else says when they go to another sort of car or whatever so heres my post!

Sold my Ranger and got a 2006 Cobalt SS Supercharged 5-Spd. Black with Black leather interior, premium sound, shaved emblems and black bowtie.

Reasons being I wanted a sporty something, trying to make my truck sporty wasnt enough. Also next to my shop a dealership had this car sitting there.





I wanted one since 04 before they came out but didnt have the money for it. I talked to the sales guy and found out it was a 06 with 11,640 miles on it. I then said meh Ill test drive it. Drove it and WOW I mean wow this car pulls better then the Firebird Formula that I just worked on (though the firebird was auto and had 150k miles on it). I then was about to go on my way when I saw the $23k price tag. The guy said well since your our next door neighbors Ill see what I can do. Next day he calls me and says "well wholesale on the car is 19,700. For you I can do out the door 18,000" So I thought wow good deal. Now I tried to get into an F150 before and as most people know you never get what you want for your trade, most any ford would give me was ~9 for it. I went in and got 13K for my truck. I owed 11 on it.

All in all it has every feature I wanted my truck to have but couldnt get due to being 19 and a first time buyer with little credit built up. However Im still on these forums because you guys rock! Just dont be hating on the bowtie! I know I joke bout the big wing and that I have my tow straps in the back from my truck. Plus every chevy guy has a friend with a ford to save his ***! Its why Im keepin the tow straps in the car!

Awesome car. I really want to trade my truck in, but will never get what I want for it. Was your Ranger a single or supercab 2d or 4d? Power everything? Cruise? Tilt?

Not a real big Chevy fan, but those Cobalts look good. Especially with no emblems...drool.

Truck was 4 door with everything but leather. Trade in value of excellcent condition 12,100 and I got 13000 with owing 11,383.

Rims and tires were sold to a friend for what I payed for them. They went on a 02 Mustang. He is taking the tires off and putting them on his friends truck.

I want to do the black headlights like so many have done on rangers, and I want some black rims for sure too! The wing I dunno about yet, I havent looked into other options. They have some good stage 1-5 options for the cars too!

GM = If they were worth buying, they wouldnt be in the situation they are currently in.

Just my 3 cents

Looks ok I guess. I am not a fan of little cars especially when they wear bowties. Enjoy! You definately need Black headlights and wheels.

I do know that, but it is a truck. It's higher up, it has a bed and I can play with it off-road. I don't really like cars. They are to low(hard for me to get in and out of with my bad knees). Basically I just don't like cars(with a couple of exceptions, but I still probably wouldn't own another one).
