What is your favorite car?

“My favorite car would be a 2013 Nissan Altima.

“I love the new look. It’s a new body style car, so I love the new look of the car. And the fuel mileage on the car is a 38-mile-per-gallon car. So with gas prices the way they are, it’s a hot seller here.

“Yeah, love the look of it, and I love the fuel mileage on it.”

“This would have to be my favorite. It’s a Camaro. It’s a ZL1 which is the highest performance Camaro that they make. Super-charged with 575 horsepower. So it’s not something you buy to save gas.”

Why does this one stand out for you?

“Mostly the performance. But it’s got the muscle-car look. The Corvettes are really nice too, but this has kind of got the old ’60s muscle-car look. Kind of reminds me of the Transformers. Looks like it could come to life.

“So it’s got the same performance or even more than a Corvette, but it does have a backseat. So you can put four in there instead of just two.

“I normally like chrome myself a little more in the wheels, but these black wheels with the black stripes gives it a uniue look.

“I see a lot of cars come through here, but this is this one stands out. Nothing like I’ve ever seen. Got a 6-speed manual transmission. But the way the technology is, it’s so much smoother and easier shifting than it used to be back in the ’60s.”
