It's cheesy, it's tacky, it looks dumb... it's the perfect Pontiac! The people who buy Pontiacs will squeal in delight!

When I saw this I though it was about a conversion pack to make an F5 Camaro look like an F5 Firebird... which would be neat in the aftermarket sorta like how they made a challenger look like a Cuda.

This will be an aftermarket package unlike the original Hawks which were RPO second sticker cars.

I should probably talk with my friends at SLP about this.

I think that the package overall is a good idea, and will make the G8's a lot more fun. Pleaseeeeee don't call it a Firehawk!

Definately NOT. I want the American Firebird to be the only car that gets the Firehawk name and I want it returned. Since the Camaro is comming back, it's only fair that the 'BIRD' returns as well. The G8 in the link will be better to be called 'HOLDEN' G8 SLP, rather than a Firehawk. It's an import for god's sakes, it doesn't DESERVE to be called a legendary name that Firebird once had. Period. God I hate imports.

They've decided the 'bird isn't coming back. Should SLP wither and die because of it? :rolleyes:

No, that would be dumb. Like bringing back the Firehawk name for a G8.

Interesting Idea. remember when Dodge Charger people went Crazy when they saw 4 doors !! Well Hemi Chargers run pretty darn well. Time will tell but remember this will not be a hugh seller

Here is the whole teaser flyer:

On an ST, I think I can accept the name Firehawk.

I know a thing or two about what it is supposed to mean. :AH-HA_wink:

Given what GM's been doing to Pontiac lately, I half expected the Firehawk name to be attached to a G3. When you look at it that way, I'm ecstatic that it's attached to a G8.

Really, I'm fine with it.

OK, maybe not on V6 cars.

But the G8 is a great car and SLP does a fantastic job.

I'll take the supercharged version on my ST please.

V what?

I'm disgusted!

Do you see Dodge calling their 4-door LX car a Charger.... oh, nevermind. :P

This just adds to the stupidity, VW Phaeton, MB "4-door-coupe" & FWD Lincoln Zephyr/MK-Z come to mind. :angry:

This debate is raging on quite a few boards. Interestingly, Firehawk owners tend to be more accepting of the idea than most. Then again, we know what to expect from SLP.

This is my post on the Firehawk board. :

Potentially, this could yield the most perfect ride for me ever built.

Provided that it is available on the upcoming G8 ST as well.

2-doors, a supercharger, and a Firehawk badge on my default bodystyle.

It would be heaven for me.

I dunno if you are implying that the Charger name on a 4-door is stupid or not, but if you think so I strongly disagree.

I've gotten over the 4dr Charger, esp. since Dodge now has a 2dr Challenger.

Show me where I can purchase a Firebird or Trans Am....or GTO?

Okay how about ANY RWD/V8/2-door Pontiac?

Yeah. Exactly.

You see any "Shelby-Cobra-427" emblems on a souped up Crown Vic? (yes-yes, exaggeration for effect)

How about ZL1-COPO emblems on the upcoming Cruize SS sedan?

Some names/monikers should not be effed with!
