: My last adventure in my V (lots of high res pics)...

Well, GM finally bought back my 06 V as a lemon. I am really going to miss that car. But after 21 visits to the shop in 2 years I could not justify keeping it.

But I have to say a few things...

I LOVE the CTSV. As a matter of fact, I tried the competition and I could NOT see myself in ANY of them so I ended up going in a COMPLETELY different direction (http://www.flickr.com/photos/28191109@N05/2632636197/sizes/l/)

Here are some pics (http://www.flickr.com/photos/28191109@N05/sets/72157605939614862/) of my last Adventure with my 06 V. I ended up going to the Bristlecone Pines in the white mountains in my V. Anyone who saw me must have thought I was CRAZY. I got my V up to about 11,300 feet. I had to drive pretty slow to be sure I didn't screw her up. But I made it.

I also had a chance to stop at Manzanar (http://www.flickr.com/photos/28191109@N05/sets/72157605939614802/) on my way up. Very emotional stop I have to say.

I am really going to miss my V but I am sure I will get another on in a few years. So I will be back.

Thanks for the great times and info to all of you,
