    2009.5 G8 GT: Washed, Photo Shoot

    Alright, I know it looks like I totally copied my fellow staff member and pal ChevyRules as he just did the same. However I hand-wash this car about every 3 days (if I have the time) so maybe he copied me? Our power went out earlier (again), so I thought it was the prime time to get some shots of the G8. I used my DSLR, but I am, by EVERY STRETCH, an amateur photographer so don't be too harsh.

    ************************************************* YOU! STUPID COPY CAT! Couldn't be stood up by my awesome Aura shots. This makes me one step closer to posting a certain thing I am sure you don't want seen!







    Good pics I guess.

    Nice photos and the car looks awesome! I drove a G8 GT the other day and I loved the hell out of it.

    Good good.

    By the way, if it doesn't rain tomorrow, I'm washing our cars...and maybe copying both you AND ChevyRules and doing a photoshoot.

    I dunno. Seems you washed it so well you took the red right out of the car. I mean, c'mon, it was Liquid Red, right?



    Nice shots.

    Man, I don't think my car has ever been that clean. Really nice shots, though a few of them have a distracting lens flare. Otherwise good Work

    Cool car. Is it really designated as a 2009.5?

    Wow! Excellent shots! One small critique is the telephone pole reflection on the hood in the 5th picture. There might have been a way to frame that pic so that the pole doesn't reflect in the hood. My favorite shot is the 7th one down, simply perfect.
