To continue my fixation on automobiles, I am happy to announce that I am the proud parent of a 2009 Pontiac Vibe.
The birthing process was very difficult. It all started with me getting screwed. Then, parts of the delivery were painful. But, it all came out okay in the end. Walking is still a bit uncomfortable. But that’s all private.
I’m here to tell you about all the features on the Pontiac Vibe, which I plan to own for at least 10 years, when people will say “Ponti-what?“…
The economic climate is rather tough right now for most of us. So, I don’t want to blather on and on and on too much about my shiny spankin’ new car. This made me decide to consolidate this review from 247 parts originally, down to 69 parts,
Today, I’d like to tell you about the radio antenna.
The car has been sitting dormant in my garage because I still have my old car and I’m too cheap to register and insure two cars at once. So, being as I have only driven it once, back from the dealer, I don’t know if the antenna works very good, or at all, actually.
But it sure does look cool.
The radio antenna on a shiny spankin’ new 2009 Pontiac Vibe has a unique, phallus-like design. Sweeping out the back at an aerodynamic 45 degree angle, it seems to say “Come and get me, electromagnetic radiation!”. After all, shouldn’t a car named “Vibe” pick up “vibes”. Dat’s right, Mofo!
Pay special attention to the “doubly twisty” design where one skinny antenna wire wraps around the thick, long, fat shaft of the main antenna. Yeah.
Not to be too technical, but the antenna is composed of a plastic-ey material. I do think the black color is a bit cliche. I wish it were yellow. That would be totally rad.
What’s the little antenna next to it, you ask? That’s the Onstar antenna. That’s right. The 2009 Vibe is equipped with two antennas, a mama antenna and a baby antenna. Ironically, shorter the baby antenna has to reach all the way to a satellite in outer space, where the big, long antenna only needs to pick up signals that bounce off the troposphere. That shit ain’t fair.
But overall, I think the 2009 Pontiac measures up very well, with a wheel-to-antenna ratio of 3.0, using the standard method, counting the spare wheel and the steering wheel, of course. Most cars weigh in at a lofty 6.0.
Thanks for reading. Coming shortly: part two of the review of the 2009 Pontiac Vibe: The Air Conditioning Knob.
