Richmond, Virginia

Post by MrPontiac » Sat Mar 07, 2020 4:13 am

Just picking up my 09 Vibe GT in Cincinnati and driving back to Richmond today. Bought it new in 08, loved it, gave it to daughter as grad gift and just bought it back. Tires and clean up first, then some performance upgrades I hope!

Driving was the only choice as "Quantas doesn't fly to Cincinnati"

Congrats on getting it back. Cincinnati to Richmond should be a good drive, there's some truly beautiful country between those two.

Nice to hear it's still on the road after giving it to one of your kids :o Hopefully she took good care of it and you have very little to do to it. Update us soon when you get it fixed up to your specs & post some pics! Nine years ago almost to the day, I drove down to Cincinnati to pick up the exact same car for my son and drove it up to Toledo for him at that time. We still have it also :D Beechmont Mitsubishi is the dealership it was at.

I agree. WV is a nice drive, when you're not running from banjos.

Remember, Deliverance took place in Georgia
