My thanks to Sheebaweeba for the info on my car (and the compliment!) It's always good to learn something about something you own!

You have got yourself an awesome machine that corners beautifully and is pretty hard to touch in a straight line.

2008 Pontiac G8 GT (Cherry Bomb)

Last updated Jul 21, 2010  

Photo of a 2008 Pontiac G8 GT (Cherry Bomb)


Last month, I got a MAJOR Union greviance settlement at work. My wife and I decided that it was time for me to get a car I really liked since she got a decent one earlier this year. We went looking for something that I would like better than my old Cavalier sedan (Notice that I never bothered to post that car!) and that would be a better fit for our two growing kids. After a series of phone calls to local dealers, we jumped in the old Cavalier and headed on down to the local Pontiac/Buick/GMC store to check out this car. It was the sales manager's demo, so if you combine that with the Labor Day sale, End-Of-Model-Year pricing, and Pontiac being a 'Lame Duck' brand, you can see why we got a great screamin' deal on this car - nearly 1/4 off sticker!


6.0 Liter V-8
6-Speed Automatic Transmission
Limited Slip Differential
4-wheel Independant Suspension
4-wheel Disc Brakes

I'll get back to you with Horsepower and Torque numbers. I don't have any times yet, since I'm not going to beat on my new car that's not even fully broken in yet!

Factory Options

Plenty, but it's all standard on the GT! All the usual stuff- Power steering/brakes/ seats/windows/locks/mirrors, Remote Start, OnStar, Blaupunkt AM/FM/XM/6-Disc CD Player, P245/45R18 Tires


Hey, I just got the car! Only thing I've done is pull the dealer's sticker off the trunk!
