Well, been quite some time since I've visited the Fiero forums, but it still feels like home.

Thought I'd poke my head in and say hi, as well as posting a picture of my new toy.



2009 G8 GXP. Traded a gentleman my previous GT (plus paper money) for this unit.

Being 1of 9 of its build, I'm planning to baby it and keep it safe for a Barret-Jackson auction in 20-30 years.

Apologies! Been travelling for the past week or so and haven't had much time to post things.

A couple more shots:









And one of the one I traded off (which I actually kind of miss):

Thanks davy!

It's quite the car. Though, as I kinda mentioned before, I do miss the old G8 GT I had. Though the move from 6.0L auto to 6.2L manual is making the feelings subside pretty quickly. ;P

And a shot of the Fiero project for what it's worth.

I'm quite disappointed they didn't keep them around for a bit longer. But at least it's reinCARnated (ha!) as the SS.

Personally, I think your new G8 is loads better than the one you had.

I didn't know they made those manual, or is that the "1 of 9" part of things?
Either way, that thing is beautiful, and the Fiero looks like it will be quite the car.

Only the GXP was available in the manual, and they made 1829 GXPs, probably about half were manuals (though I don't remember what the exact number there was). Breaks down more as you get into colors and sunroof/solid roof.


Nice ride and congrats on the purchase! Took me about 3 months after I totaled my GT last summer to find my GXP....definitely more fun to drive with the stick

I believe there were few sunroofless cars, which would probably account for most of the 1 of 9 part. Though I'm not really up on my production numbers.

Let's see some shots of your GT and GXP, if you've got, naskie.

@DKcustoms: I agree, the GXP is awesome. But I'm a sucker for gun metal grey, and I had purchased the GT with very low KM, so it felt like my baby. Though, oddly enough, the two cars had pretty well the same mileage when trading up. My GT was about 29,900 while the GXP was about 33,000km or so. It's always tough to say goodbye to a nice car, and it's kinda weird when you're going to a slightly nicer version of pretty well the same car.

Nice!

I lusted after those for a while. Ended up buying a Challenger R/T. Oh well... you learn.
(Keep in mind... This is when both GM and Chrysler were both going through bankruptcy. Nobody had a clue what was going to happen.)

I'm rather fond of the new Chargers as well. Never driven one, though I've heard good things. How do you like yours?
