Owner Spotlight-Meet STAGEUP
Oct 28, 2014 - 11:01 PM - by The Yeti
The Yeti's Avatar fk by NikonFly, on Flickr

Well hello there my fellow G8'ers! First of all, I'd like to say that it's an honor to be in the spotlight! My name is Rhett and I'm from Gilbert Arizona. I am proud to say that I've been a loyal GM fan since I was 5 years old. I saw my first Corvette in Los Angeles back in 1986 and that was all I needed to become a hardcore GM fan! Now, don't get me wrong, I do recognize a great automobile when I see one, even when it isn't GM. GM just creates that "spark" for me though.
So, needless to say, I have never owned anything, but GM. My first vehicle was a 1982 Chevy S10 that I drove during the late 90s. Next was a 1989 Buick Lesabre T-Type. After that I got my hands on a 1998 Grand Prix GTP coupe. I then felt the need for RWD. So, in 2005 I bought a new LS2 GTO M6. In 2007, I ended trading my GTO in for a LS6 CTS-V. During that time, I had also gotten ahold of my Awesome Syclone from the original owner in California. A couple months after that, I told my fiance it was time for her to "move up". So we went to the Chevy dealer and pick up her brand new 2007 TBSS. Fast forward to 2011. I was on a business trip one night and decided to type "G8 GXP" in my cars.com search. Thats when I saw "The next big thing"! lol. I scrolled down to the description, crossing my fingers that I'd see "Manual trans" in that description. YES! She was a manual!
So I rushed back home from my business trip and told the wife about it. The wife immediately said "we need that car!" Whooo Hooo! Most awesomest wife ever! So, I ended up trading the CTS-V in for the GXP! Great trade in my opinion. I haven't looked back!

At Wildhorse Pass Motorplex in Chandler AZ....

The GXP is kept fairly simple in hopes of keeping it as desirable as possible. So, simple bolt ons is all she has right now.

Here is a great view of the "Man pedal". This is were the magic happens.

Here she is running a 12.0@115 mph agaianst a poor 5th Gen Camaro. I know, I know. It may be a little difficult to see the Camaro during the race.

And here I am doing some testing on the street while granny shifting...

My G8 GXP has been my best car yet. What I love most about it is how rare she really is. I also love that the kids and the wife all have a blast in it while being comfortable. The G8 may not be all "GM", but it's got the most important part of GM sitting under that steel hood.

Here are the other two currently sharing the stable with the GXP...

The Official SEMA Show After Party, And Everyone's Invited.
Oct 17, 2014 - 11:43 AM - by AutoGuide.com

There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of the week to watch the cars exiting. Additionally, the "best of show" awards will be given out during a televised presentation as part of the Ignited event. A proud sponsor of SEMA Ignited, AutoGuide will be on hand to capture all the action.
