We are hoping to be in a new house by this time next year, so we chose to downsize our garage by selling our 2012 Malibu LTZ (3.6) and my toy, a 2002 Camaro SS, which went to its new owner this past Saturday. My concession to the sale of my Camaro was that I was to get something sorta fun. Thus, a search for a G8 GT commenced. While I would have loved the GXP, it simply wasn't within my budget. After getting burned by two private sellers on craigslist that completely misrepresented their G8's (after I drove 4.5 hours!), I found this one an 1.5 hours away. 83k miles, one owner, meticulously maintained, stock except for a K&N filter $16,500. The interior is absolutely flawless; the exterior just has a small dent on the driver front fender with some paint damage that I am getting an estimate to repair on Wednesday. I might just slap touchup paint on it and call it a day since this car isn't going to get any cleaner since it'll be a four-season driver. I'd like to do some stuff like headers, intake, and tune, but that's all a dream until we get our new house
First "mod" was getting rid of the silly engine cover!
It's a nice car to drive around. It reminds me of a more grown up version of my GTO.... which, of course, makes sense! It's certainly not a replacement for my Camaro, but it'll do until I'm allowed play money again by my CPA... er... wife
