  • *** April COTM winner... Strykerg8GT ***

    Congratulations to Strykerg8GT on the April COTM win!!

    Hello, my name is Shaun and I’m addicted to cars. My addiction began the day I was born. You see, my father, Guy, is an automotive technician and in our household cars ruled. If you were to ask us what our favorite team is, the answer would have to be General Motors. I learned at an early age to appreciate automobiles and to see them as works of art rather than simple means of transportation.

    I acquired the car in the summer of 2009 as a replacement for my 2003 Chevrolet Blazer ZR2 that was totaled in an unfortunate accident. When deciding upon a replacement vehicle I knew I had a few criteria that needed to be met. It needed to be a rear wheel drive V8 sedan and it needed to be a GM. Needless to say, that narrowed my search down significantly. I saw buying this car new as a way of supporting GM in its time of crisis and as a way to own a piece of automotive history, the last great Pontiac.

    I’ve built this car to date with the modifications that I feel compliment not only the vehicle itself but also each other nicely. I have received numerous compliments wherever I drive and have taken home numerous awards from various car shows. However, none of this would be possible if it weren’t for the help and support of my father. He ignited my passion for cars and has helped me every step of the way to create the vehicle pictured before you.

    Current Appearance Modifications:

    Gloss black “Firehawk” style hood, GXP diffuser and SLP spoiler
    Gloss black powdercoated stock 19 inch sport wheels
    Gloss yellow powdercoated stock calipers
    Candy blue powdercoated Roto-Fab coiler covers and radiator cover
    Stryker blue strut tower covers and a custom fuse box cover
    Custom blue and black leather cover made for the center armrest
    GM accessories floor mats, G8 door sills and a GM Performance Division badge
    Clear side markers
    Third Shift Studios “Last of the Brand” badge on the trunk lid

    Current Performance Modifications:

    BMR trailing arms
    DBA 4000 series slotted rotors with Hawk ceramic pads
    Roto-Fab cold air intake
    Solo catback exhaust system
    Kooks mid-length headers
    Custom tune by East Coast Supercharging

    Finally, thank you to everyone who voted for me. There were a number of great vehicles in this month's poll and its a privelage to be able to represent LS1.com for the month of April. It's always nice to know that the hard work put into a vehicle is appreciated by your peers.

    Horse power with headers

    what Jeff said. Great 1st time mod foundation to get your hands dirty. Every other engine mod will benefit from a good set of headers.

    Hard water spots

    So easy to dry it takes a couple of minutes. Steal one of the car wife's expensive bath towels (large) and dry the car for two minutes. Done!
