Default Probably another memorable day in my life

Alright so heres the story. I was walking home from the neighborhood bus stop and i looked up the hill and said "Is that a GXP?" I have never seen a GXP IRL yet so i wasn't sure. walking up that hill, i saw that it was a GXP! ohh shoot was i excited...so excited, i asked the guy (he was in the neighbors garage) to ask if it was his bonneville. I also told him i loved bonnevilles. He said "what engine does the GXP have?" That was simple...so i said "4.6L Northstar V8". He was shocked. He laughed it off and said he would start it for me and open the hood. I said thank you and asked him if i could film. here it is

Now i understand that a few of you have GXPs (Venom'* GXP is the best) But keep in mind this is the first time i've seen a GXP. I hope you enjoyed my post
