Another GXP gone

It pains me to see this one. My records show that this car was owned by KDiggityDog76 in Walnut Creek, CA. Not much useful stuff on the car survived this rollover.

!0-4. Crying shame to see 2 more GXP's smashed up.
The first car was slaughtered but hopefully the second one is re-built by someone.
Drive those cars safe people.

It is truly said to see these cars go, even a non-GXP.

It does not take much to total a G8 nowadays. Parts are really high so just a minor front end collision takes them out.

RIP my white G8 GT with less than 65k on the clock.

Are you planning on buying a new G8 or what? I don't think I could drive another car after this puppy. I could definitely get down with buying another GSXR-600 though... but other than that the G8 is my shieetttt.

Yeah I wasn't even planning on buying a G8... I went to the place I bought mine @ to buy a 4 cyl colorado for 13 grand... .. I test drove both the G8 and two different colorados and can you imagine what my decision was??? I've always wanted one... and as fate would have it...

I had actually pretty much completely forgotten about the G8 since I never see them driving.. They had a red one with racing stripes and OOOOO

Thanks, we do have an S5 in the family, so I do have that to drive, but yes, I really do miss the G8, had it since new, first one at my dealer, had ordered her months before they were starting to build in 07.... Not sure what to do, wallowing.


Ls3BeautyBeast - looking good!

This is so sad. Good to see some people are willing to go above and beyond and salvage some of these wrecked cars though.

Yeah I really didnt ment to, was just trying to show that there is still hope on some. Yeah this my second g8 bringing back to the road. First was a GT with 55k miles but 2months later of being back on the road the L76 had a lifter failure and end up doing an LS3 swap from a donor camaro. I wasn't too happy with it because it had the 2nd to 3rd shift flare and always wanted a manual instead so this GXP was perfect for me. I'll start a new thread for the resurrection

Thanks @need4spd
