    i saw on motor trend the stats on the g8 gxp and with an ls3 at 415hp it only does 13 sec in the 1/4. i guess it just goes to show how a far a little weight reduction and aerodynamic can go. especially for 38k loaded.

    All that money and it only pulls a 12.6? Can you imagine buying a super clean LS1 F-body for around $14,000 and spending another $36,000 in modifications..? Wow..

    yeah it does, i just don't like to see it from the same family. I was thinking about the same thing about the mods. My fiance was thinking about getting one until i told her the 1/4 time...then we talked about both have fourth gens and modding with the extra money we saved!

    There are conflicting reports tough guy. Try saying "I've heard they're just scaling back." You're a top executive at GM I gather...??

    Ha Ha... alright, alright. All I'm saying is I've heard both scenarios. The major news networks reported last week that GM was "cutting" SAAB, Saturn, And only offering Pontiac via special order. The main point to my statement was and still is, I don't understand why GM has cut Olds and now, let's just say, majorly overhauling Pontiac instead of just cutting their losses with Buick. That's all man.
