    Default Florida Car!

    During my holiday in Florida, I had a Chevvy Impala LTZ. Initially had a Pontiac Grand Prix, but this fell to bits in 50 miles so changed it.

    3.9l V6 auto. Lots of torque, thirsty with a pretty low rent interior. (Note the nice 'plastic' wood.) It's redeeming feature was an excellent HD Bose stereo. Despite it's poor handling and brakes, it was very nice to waft along, enjoying the relaxed driving that seems to happen in the US. Very little excessive speeding or tailgating.

    They are definitely downsizing over there, lots more small cars about. Still incredibly cheap to buy a car. They were advertising the Astra VXR heavily..as a economical 'compact'.

    I think ur right, they're definitely downsizing.
    I remember when I was in Cali 10 years ago, a 3L V6 was seen as a small second car!!

    Don't come back Paul, make roots to stay, my mate is in Canada now, swapped his truncheon for a gun, and very happy about it as well he is, I've heard some troubling stats tonight that have convinced me I have to leave here some time soon before it becomes even more of a nightmare.

    Amazing isn't it, it just proves how blinkered they really can be, there's all sorts of good reasons to leave right now, but they won't leave their mum's and just cannot see that this place is finished as we knew it, I only hope other countries are watching what's happening here and prepare themselves to repel the locust's when they move on from here once they've gleaned the cream off of 300 yrs hard work to make the UK what it was 30 yrs ago, time window is about 15 yrs if my sums are correct.

    Didn't bother in the end. It's so easy to find your way around. Got a free map off the car hire company and it's all I ever needed.
