I settled for the Camaro's Cousin...

I was originally intending on ordering a 2LT RS Camaro...
Things never really panned out that way, so I cancelled my order and that was that.

With all the incentives out there on vehicles at GM right now, I decided to take it upon myself and "settle" for our beloved Camaro's cousin from Australia. Thats right.. The G8.

Just picked up a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT. And my god, am I ever excited.
6.0L V8 with 361hp, and 385 lb trq.. and rear wheel drive!
Where do I sign myself up?

With over $12,000 of stackable credits towards the purchase of my car, I knew I had to get this bad boy!

Just another satisfied General Motors buyer!

Delivery is next wednesday!

12 grand off msrp? I'd have to jump all over that deal too..

I'm assuming you're paying around 20 or 22 grand for that L76 four door sports sedan..

You can't beat that deal with a stick.

Congrats again..

JB

Congrats on a great deal!

And actually, the OP is Canadian, so our GT is $43 000 - $12 000 = $ 31 000, or right around there. Which is a really sweet deal! The only bad thing about getting G8 GT's in Canada, is we don't get Blue Stryker Metallic!
