Congratulation to mac99d and hos 04 turbo GT on their well-deserved win!

How did you come to own your Vibe?

After my first deployment to Iraq I returned to the states with some money saved to buy a 2004 GTO. When I went to the Pontiac dealership the gas prices were on their way up. After looking at the GTO, and trying to fit a family of 5 in to it I knew that was not going to work for me. The dealer asked if I wanted a grand-am I said no because it was the same car as the Malibu I already had and was trading in. I told him I wanted a manual transmission and something sporty that’s why I wanted the GTO. He asked if I had heard of the vibe Gt. I told him no what is that. So he showed me a white Gt I thought it looked pretty cool so I agreed to take it for a test drive. I remember cruising it down towards the interstate not really pushing it much. Just as I was about to get on the on ramp he told me not to be afraid to rev it out I was not sure what he meant by that, but as I started to accelerate and the lift engaged I was like wow I have never felt that before then it just kept going all the way to 8200 RPM. After that I knew It was going to be a fun car that the whole family can fit in to. The next day I went in to get my car it had 12 miles on it and I have put every mile on it since then.

Factory options?

Everything but a factory SUB.

Does your Vibe have a name?

Yes she does and she is really a ETHOLIC.

What was the first thing you did to your Vibe?

Made my custom diamond plate dead pedal plate. And then a CAI.

What is the favorite thing you’ve done to your Vibe?

Put my turbo on. Been having a blast since then.

If you could do one extreme thing to your Vibe, what would it be?

I guess paint the car inside and out ZR1 blue.

What is your favorite thing to do with/on your Vibe?

Just get out and drive it. Sometimes I go out to buy gum on the other side of town just so I have a reason.

Final words?

Enjoy your life and enjoy your car.

Again, congratulations to mac99d and Etholic!
