    I have Pontiac G8 ST spy photos and don't know what to do

    Hi guys,
    I am in Melbourne Australia right now on business. As I was on my way back to the hotel, I see a car hauler with 2 camo'ed Utes on the back. I pull over and quickly grab my camera out of my briefcase. I start snapping away as fast as I could. The driver rolled his window down and started yelling at me and drove away. Before he could, I got 4 or 5 reasonable shots of some Holden Utes with Pontiac grilles on them. They had Holden wheels, but clearly Pontiac grilles.

    First of all, does anyone even care? Here is a sample of what I got. I have intentionally shrunk it down. If there is any other interest, where should I go?

    Mike F

    I assume you're looking for money? I don't think you'll get anything for them- the official pics have already been released. GMi can watermark them for you, and if anyone has any interest in them a mod could let you know.

    Post them and see what happens!

    Oh I getcha... you were talking from a 'legal' standpoint... if you send the pics to nsap he can watermark them for you, but GMi doesn't pay for pictures. Still, we'd love to see them!

    The truck driver was probably yelling at you because you were on the wrong side of the road

    Doesn't look like any of those camo'd cars have Pontiac noses on them.

    The picture posted here is the only one that you would be able to tell if it had the Pontiac grille or not. The center post was painted flat black, and can barely be made out in the photo. In person, it was very clear what they were.
