    Ringing in the New GM: Now with pictures

    Well, after much toing and froing I finally bit the bullet, blamed "midlife crisis" and bought a new set of wheels to ring in the New GM. And I chose a very auspicious day: Bankruptcy Day.

    No pics yet for those out there that are curious, but I should have pictures soon.

    For those that can't wait, here's what I bought:

    Pontiac G8 GT


    Fully loaded, in Liquid Red. Ultimately, I just couldn't pass up the deal of more than $10,000 off. When am I ever going to get that kind of a deal on a NEW car? Especially one this good?

    Here are pictures of the beast.

    Congrats! I see them more and more often here in Orange County. I saw a nice white GT with a Magna Charger on it last weekend that made me consider a life of crime to be able to afford another vehicle. Drive it somewhere nice and get some good photos of it! Driveway shots don't count! ;-)

    Thanks to all.

    And it's a great car. It wasn't hard to fall in love with it once I drove it. It felt just like my friend's last gen M5. Wonderful to drive, very precise.

    This is something I'm going to keep for a very very long time.

    And I agree with Slideways. I keep seeing more and more of them on the road. I think a bunch of us old Pontiac fans simply wanted to buy what is the best Pontiac ever before Pontiac is simply no more.

    As long as it's not that wretched colour that Hitman1970 chose!



    Though I think that red is G-d awful too.

    Did all of you want to be firemen when you were little?

    Don't listen to me. I'm so beyond partial to white...

    In fact I did want to be a fireman. But then wised up to the risks when I got older.

    I'm afraid I'd lose a white one in the winter up here.

    Very nice!

    And $10k worth of incentives? Excellent deal. In southern Ontario I'm starting to see more and more of these.

    I doubt we'll see many more. I bought the last GT in Ottawa. Supposedly there are but a handful left in Ontario, and a quick check online shows about 7 or 8. They won't last long.

    In the end, it was an unbelievable deal. It's what nagged at me since February. Could I pass it up. Could I pass it up. And, no, I couldn't.
