  1. 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!
  2. Funny, this car seems to have more personality than the other Holden import (GTO/Monaro)...but DAMN, it's one of the most hot cars to come from Pontiac in a long time (I think I can safely say that) if not all of GM (save the Solstice/Sky) I WANT ONE !!!
  3. But you realize the Grand Prix will eventually be phased out, right? The idea, I believe, is when the G8 moves to Canada to replace the GP with the G8. Am I correct?
  4. Ah, sorry about that...I'm at work and only looked at the pictures really fast. I'm also glad to see we have literate readers on this site, Jesus Christ that lazy-ass tech/geek/net-lingo is annoying.
  5. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that looks like it's the same thing as the Pontiac G8. How sure are we that this is the Camaro and not possibly the Impala redo?
  6. Yet the import-biased media will spin it so Honda looks better!
  7. The point of the post is that typically, cars designed for the American market are larger than most anywhere else in the world and we have a reputation (rather, stereotype) of only being able to drive big big cars in other countries. BTW: where the hell did you get that Transformers thing? It's absolutely friggin hilarious and I wanna put it on my myspace page!
  8. True, but you gotta let a guy dream (but we'll see where the dust settles when both vehicles are on the road at the same time)
  9. Even though any of these vehicles would be severely out of my price range, I enjoy what GM is hitting the streets with.
  10. Yes, yes you should !!! :AH-HA_wink: Saturn is making this quality push too, I went to one a few months back and it was super nice, granted not as upscale as this Caddy dealership, but nice just the same.
  11. Initially, the G8 is pretty much going to be made in Australia by Holden (it is built by Holden as the Commodore I believe), just like the GTO...
  12. Cue "newsy" music with a Walter Kronkite voice-over.... This just in, GM invests in money pit...that is all Al Gore wins again, yet another blow to Ralph Nader
  13. It seems the answer to this move would be a resounding and unapologetic: NO It would be a stupid and unwise business move if GM were to do this. As noted here , most completely agree with the author.
  14. Yes, rumor has it that it will be the new GTO!
  15. Am i the only one that noticed leather stitching on the dash? Competition, prepare to be by Pontiac!
