Sounds like a great car.

But now I know I'm over the hill. Everything coming looks like rice to me. I think it'* called arrested development. Just can't get my eyes around it.

Don't knock it till you see it personally and drive it.

I'm not saying it'* bad, it'* just that GM is getting so lazy with their vehicles! You can't just bring cars over from another country and slap a badge on it and call it a new vehicle. It'* not. GM AMERICA needs to come up with their own vehicles.

This is exactly what GM North America needs, to be shown how to make a car. Global divisions have used parts and engines available, or even created in this market, but made into a SIGNIFICANTLY better product, for less money then the US counterparts.

The GTO was one such example. Those were the best seats i've ever sat in, in a GM product bar-none. The dash was good, the fit and finish of interior trim was good, and it has a sound chassis. If this is priced to start low 20'*, it should really do well.

i think it was in motor trend a few months ago they talked about this car and that if it comes to north america it will be patterned after the holden "ss"......therefore the reason for the g "8" designation! yeah pontiac!
