Thumbs up Dream Cruiser: Pontiac G8 GT

Remember, Camaro and G8 are siblings...





By Scott Burgess / The Detroit News

Dream cruiser: 2008 Pontiac G8 is a new muscle car for Woodward

Look out Woodward, a new dream cruiser has arrived: The 2008 Pontiac G8.

But this is not a car relegated to hitting the asphalt one week a year with a couple of guys sitting near it in beach chairs reminiscing about days gone by. This is a daily drive that can teach a young cruiser what muscle cars can do when superior handling is mated to a powerful V-8.

Brawny and downright mean-looking, the G8 offers rubber-burning fun whether sprinting from stop light to stop light in Woodward tradition or speeding through twisty country roads. Dollar for dollar, this is the best Pontiac on the road today.



Now, before every other person with venom in their veins for Detroit muscle sits down to type me a stern e-mail to tell me this car represents the past and has no place on the modern globe -- that may or may not be warming -- just stop. You are wrong.

The G8 is the best of Detroit, or at least Australia, where the G8 is built. General Motors Corp., using its new global rear-wheel drive platform that also will host the new Camaro, has bestowed its Outback subsidiary, Holden, as the rightful caretaker of rear-wheel fun.

The G8 is fast and fun and affordable. I would take this car every day of the week over any fuel-frugal tin can.

We must wait for Camaro It's getting closer.

Now the 2009 G8's are going to start tagging any day now. They say June or July delivery, with standard XM and Bluetooth added.

As great as it is, it's not a Camaro and I don't need two cars Give me strength
