GM has been ridin’ high for decades. But, it also knows how to get low. I test-drove the Saturn Sky Red Line and felt like a speed demon. I also drove the Camaro 2LT Coupe and felt a lot of power under my feet. Both have a “SENSATIONAL!” influence.

THE CAR: SATURN SKY RED LINE

This isn’t your momma’s Saturn. This is a cool car!  With this car it’s all about the power.  Riding seductively low to the ground, this car will turn heads. It looks good. It drives well. Maneuverability is exceptional. It’s not very roomy on the inside, but what you give up in spaciousness, you get back in style and control. Its sleek lines will only make other sports cars envious.  This car is hot – and not just because its black interior is topped off with a Chili Pepper Red exterior. Go ahead – take a ride – I dare you!

THE CAR: CHEVROLET CAMARO 2 LT COUPE

When you first step inside the car, take a minute to catch your breath. Take it all in.  Yes, it feels just that good. Yes, it looks just that good.  The black interior coupled with the silver ice metallic exterior complement each other.  It’s the kind of car that makes it Ok to take the scenic route – just to prolong the ride.  The ride is smooth and effortless. You only live once, you may as well do it with a great car. Stylish! Distinguished! This is uniquely a Camaro.
