X2 - Thanks for the link!

I'm not sure that I'm sold on the styling yet, but I'll hold my opinion until I see it in person.

Here is a new review. In this one it runs [email protected] and keeps up with a SRT8 Charger.

The G8 GT is better than the 6000 STE, the Bonneville SSEi, the Grand Prix GTP, the G6 GXP and the Aztek UGLY. It even makes the Solstice feel like a half-*** effort. When it hits dealers in early March, the 40,000 examples of the G8 being shipped in from Down Under will reinvent Pontiac along the way.

Thats a powerful *.o.b. Kinda reminds me of the 60'*/70'* ugly muscle cars. Ugly in a good way.

One problem with it....it weighs more than a truck!

I believe I'm now a Pontiac fan. My previous affordable dream car was the GTO... this one is like the GTO in a more economical fashion.
