Beware of Cobalt, I can't believe I'm admitting this!

I was running down the lake Saturday, and a new Cobalt pulled up next to me. We both got into the throttles, and he was pulling away from me slightly Fortunately a lake lice cut in front of me and I had to shut down before I got too embarrased It was the only time ever I actually didn't mind being cut off I hear it had 575's in it. He was running a strong 80! YES I just opened the door for the Apache comments!

Yeah, you know how GM will sometimes drape a new model in vinyl when taking out the test mule.

Hey it's all good...
Beware of an Envison at LOTO as well, the guy plays hard and runs over 100mph with an open bow, IMCO extreme hanging off the transom with a 5-blade Hering and for power... well let's just say he has plenty of it...
Regards

And he probably beat you while holding a glass of champagne while his women were sunning on the deck. Cobalt makes excelent boats if you like bowriders.
