Front end of that Dodge looks like a Toyota Tacoma to me. And that is not a good thing.

I still remember sitting at the dealer back in 2004 while the Envoy was in for some warranty work. One of the salesmen told me the GTO was coming back and even gave me a poster.

In high school, all I wanted was a G8 GT. Then I wanted an SS.

I still love seeing Caprices on the road, and while on duty I make it a point to stop and talk to every officer I see lucky enough to be issued one.

Thanks for the memories Holden. I wish it didn't have to end this way.

I love my SS more than most other cars that I have owned, and I have owned too many lol. This thing is just too cool. I also wish the end wasnt so soon.

I really wish the G8GT came with a manual option when it was sold here.

I can't remember the G8 GT didn't offer a manual? I know the G8 GXP did

My friend has owned two G8 GXPs, man what a blast to drive. His first was black, bone stock. His second was a Stryker blue GXP, cam'd torque convertor, headers and full exhaust with tune. That one was wicked to drive around, and a beautiful color on a beautiful car. One day I will own an GXP G8.

I want a CTS-V wagon. I can't believe how much they are going for still in 2017.

Its one of those weird things where a car wasn't that popular when it was built, but has a very strong cult following. Those people absolutely love it and they drive up the price.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see them show up at Barrett Jackson and go for high dollar.
Probably a case of “you don’t know what ya got til it’s gone”...

My son just bought a 2017 Chevy Bolt, according to the dealership the first one sold in Wichita, KS.
It is pretty cool, we drove around town using the regerative braking and only lost one mile of range in 15 miles of driving. I can see it easily going farther than the EPA rating of 238 miles.

Looks good. Helped bump the Model X out of the #2 spot for EVs last month.

It is probably going to be a hard sell in Tennessee since they slapped an additional $100 to the registration fee on EV’s.
