Official NC G8 Sightings Thread

Time to start reporting G8 sightings, outside of seeing them on dealer lots of course.

I'll start. Saw a PBM, Black GT with tinted windows this past weekend at the Charlotte Auto Fair driving through the infield.

Hot White, heading west out of Smithfield with a very happy driver. Me, of course. Ink was still wet on the contract.

On Tuesday afternoon I saw a White Hot G8 on Gallimore Dairy Rd in Greensboro.

Actually prompted me to go over to the local Pontiac dealership yesterday afternoon to check out what they had in stock.

I saw a red G8GT with the sport and premium packages with the red seat inserts. It was on the lot in Jacksonville, NC on Wednesday. It was still there on Thursday afternoon. A few hours after that, I'm pretty sure I saw the same exact car in my garage.

Yay!!! Finally got my G8!!! And there was much rejoicing.

Y'all keep your eyes peeled on I-95 and around Smithfield/Goldsboro Monday evening through Wednesday early morning. There'll be a White Hot G8 GT flying in low from the north.

Had a menage-a-trois today in the Target parking lot in Wilson with a Midnight Blue GTO and a Black G8. I also saw, probably the same G8, in the Merrell Lynch parking lot on Airport Rd.

I saw a Liquid Red on Highway 52 and a Panther Black exactly like mine on Peter's Creek Parkway (all Winston-Salem, NC). Two weeks ago and haven't seen them since.

Looked like it had a Delaware 30day tag on it. Followed on 264 to I440 in Raleigh.

I saw a Red GT going north on 52 in the Winston-Salem area, and a Black GT on highway 150 - also in the Winston-Salem area. And, finally, I saw a Black GT in my garage in the - yep - Winston-Salem area. I have not seen either of the other folk's cars since, so I assume they don't live around here.

RyaNCSU1:
OK, I stink at directions and such...I took the kids out one day in early spring tooling around the Pilot Mtn. area. I got off 52 near the state park and followed some road that went between the hills. Curves and hairpins - awesome road. Trouble is, I was in our Yukon XL - not exactly a car you want on curvy mountain roads! I was VERY frustratedly waiting for my G8 to arrive!!!
Now I got the car and don't remember exactly where that road is and haven't had a chance to get back up there to find it...
I'll head up there tomorrow (Saturday) and see if I can't find that road...My son loves the car and my wife loves to get us out of the house!

I saw a PBM GT at Coastal Plains Dragway in Jacksonville, NC. Still had paper tags. I don't remember the times it put down, but nobody was running good. A heads and cam GTO was only ETing 13.5s...

Spotted a Red one in Clayton this morning. Made a left in front of me at Boj. Don't think she saw me though. Looked like 18's for wheels. Maybe a sedan.

Keep your eyes open for a red one with 19's. It might be me. I'm from New Bern and go to Jacksonville all the time to visit family and what not.
