Agreed, the orange is hideous...I don't know why alot of us Americans have been down on the Holden styling, it's been highly successful in Australia for a number of years hasn't it? Now the GTO I could understand about, because that was an awesome muscle car back in the late 60s and early 70s, it had a reputation to live up to. This G8, on the otherhand, it's a brand new model (for the US) so it's got an opportunity to develop a rep of its own. I would imagine once it gets to N.A. manufacturing that it would be more cost-effective for GM and hopefully they'd pass a little bit of those savings down to the consumer or at least its employees (GMS). Hell, GM is apparently GIVING away cars for perfect attendance to their auto workers!
