Thanks guys! I have to also give big thanks to the GM Holden Import Crew for their continued support in the Vegas valley! Best bunch of G8/GTO guys in the free world!

If you guys want to submit your car to LSXTV, they would love to see some more G8 submitted to them. Cliff who wrote my article thinks more G8s would be a great thing. Just to show how much support this car and the G8 community received, I had over 2,000 likes on 2 facebook posts over 1 week and if you are not familiar with facebook, that is some of the highest likes numbers I have seen on LSXTV facebook and they have amazing articles run through there.

Aliante Station roof top in North LV. Had to "manuever" the car around some pesky cones to get up there. In the process of getting the cam installed and plan on getting some good automotive shots in the near future

it's good to finally see badass cars winning GOTM rather than scenery photos with a g8 in them.

2009.1 SBM/Onyx GT Premium/no sport/no roof, Kooks LTH, catted mids, Dynomax axlebacks, custom cam, Precision triple disk 2800, camaro deep trans pan kit, Cadillac STS/CTS 7-spoke rim, Speedhut Can Bus gauges, series II IQ NAV, Fore fuel system, built trans, BMR goodies. D1 Procharger, forged OE block. So much more stuff I could probably live in a mansion if i didn't own this car!

I tend to agree with you. It's frustrating to see a G8 with rims and a DSLR photo shoot win G8 of the Month. For me, the car has to perform before all else. Secondly, the car has to look appeasing. Photoshopped work is a big turn off for me because you can change too much about the car and make it look like a cartoon.

Congrats Buford. Way to represent GMHIC and Vegas! I would enter mine again, but I don't have any good scenery or rolling shots of my car. Plus my G8 is pretty riced out and never wins anything except for personal awards I create myself or when I ride VegasNate's coat tails!!!

Yes, I did name drop VegasNate. I actually got to meet him in person! One of the best days of my life. He was like a G8 God that magically appeared from thin air. I'll never wash my cheek again!!
