CC Outtake: 1996 Pontiac Grand Am – Busted

There comes a time when something of yours breaks and you’re faced with the decision to either pay a lot to fix it or let it go.  This poor Grand Am had its major malfunction not too far from my house, and not knowing much about mechanics or cost or ease of repair, a voice in my head told me this G/A was probably a goner.  I know the feeling.  My computer died last week.  Fried.  Toasted.  Buh-bye.

Without going into too much detail about my cyber situation, suffice it to say I had the vast majority of my photos backed up, and it could have been much worse.  I’ll be back with more contributions once I get everything all sorted out.  I love writing for this site and sharing my finds, reading others’ perspectives, and also the highly entertaining and informative dialogue that often ensues here at CC.

This isn’t a veiled request for technical support (or pity), and I’ve got the situation under control.  In the meantime, enjoy this slightly depressing photo of what could have been considered, in the not-too-distant past, the “State Car” of my native Michigan – the once-ubiquitous, red Pontiac Grand Am.  I’ll wrap this post by saying that like this car, I’m not going anywhere.
