Default GXP Sightings

Kind of a random, inconsequential topic but at any rate here it is. I was driving with my wife to my father'* house (about a 12 mile drive across town) and in that time saw 2 other GXP'*, one a black with the red emblem overlays and tinted windows (looked sinister). The other was the Graystone Metallic, also with tinted windows and looked great as well. I've also seen over the past week a Red Metallic, and another White Diamond in town. Evansville is a city of about 150,000 people so it would seem to me to be a high ratio of GXP'* to people since our cars are a bit rare. Does anyone see our cars in this number where they live are am I just special?

On another note it was nice to see some kind of comradary between myself and the other two drivers I saw today, we all exchanged waives. Try that in most other cars.

i guess you see many more in the states than here, i barely see any here even in edmonton and other places in the province.
with 4800 being made, and not many into canada. could be the reason why i never see it

The only other GXP I have ever seen was the other one on the dealer'* lot when I bought mine in April of '05.

Does anyone know what is the source for the figure of only about 4800 being manufactured?

I rarely see GXP'* here in St. Louis, but I do see one here and there from time to time, I got so excited when I saw one exactly like mine ( Platnium Silver ) and it was racing down the highway against a grand prix GXP and camaro

white and or silver looks so good on the Bonnie GXP, I have always loved them in that color
