Yeah, I was at my BPG dealership, and "my" salesman mentioned the G8 is due in a couple or three weeks. I wanna see this thing.

We may not see one in PA for quite some time yet - I wanna see it too!

I'm curious to see the G8 in person as well. The concept wheels on the car pictured make a huge difference! I'm still not sure about the hood scoops, but otherwise IMO the G8 looks far less "cartoon-y" than the CTS-V. Bring on the GXP with the 6-speed manual!

I can't wait to see one either, I missed it last year at the NYIAS. The one in that pic looks hot. Hopefully the US train delivering them oesn't derail like the one that was delivering one of the first GTO shipments.

Love the bit on the Torana too. That car can't come soon enough for Holden - hopefully noone stops them from going through with it.

I'm looking forward to seeing one..the G8 didn't make it to my local auto show last year, so I have yet to see one.

That picture still stabs me in the heart.

Yeah...why couldn't it have been a train load of Grand Prixs going to Avis?

When and where was that?

Or a boat load of Turds or priuses sinking in the Mariana Trench.

If I remember right, it was an early load of 05s somewhere in the midwest.

And there are even uglier pics of the wreck.

I wasn't near it I swear! I was thousands of miles away, that day. Honest! :rolleyes:

Chalk up another "I want to see it".

Not that I'd be able to afford it, of course, but I'd like to take a closer look at it, anyway.

I am thus far anti-G8....

But Pontiac needs a hit desperately and I hope this is it...

The line up is starting to look pretty decent now. The G8, possible wagon, ST and GXP versions, a refreshed G6 line soon, a new Vibe, facelifted Solstice with a targa or coupe option.

Maybe it'll eek by yet ;)

same here. i really think, for the first time in a long time, that this is the type of car that is perfect for me, at least in terms of driving enjoyment.

I was at one of the BPG dealers last week (not the nearest one to me... I felt like driving a few miles).

He had told me, then, 3-6 weeks. So it lines up to what the OP said.

Either way, I'll be there to look at it up close. ^_^

If GM were smart they would have some G8s present at the Detroit show this year to keep people's interest ongoing about this car.

I'm sure they will, I just hope one makes it to the Philly show.

Speaking on that topic, no special GM media day event like last year Camino? And I haven't taken a sick day all school year yet! :hissyfit:

I'm really anticipating sitting inside one of these and checking out its materials and everything else. I nitpicked the Malibu and couldn't really find much wrong because I was very impressed with the new 'bu over the old one. Comparing the G8 to the GP will be easy, I'm sure, but I'll be critical. I'm already impressed design-wise though.
