WTB: G8 GT In Canada.

Im in the market in Manitoba for a G8 GT. Lower the km the better. Suggestions or any for sale? Working up north for a while but going to keep it in storage til I get back down in a few years. Order mods and set them aside to do when im there.


What do you think fair Canadian price is? Not asking but bottom line? Any advice, known issues?


In the past ive owned a G6 gt, then a G6 gtp. Both sporty coups that I modded. Currently just drive a dakota up in the snow. But want a car for then im back in the city on vacation and ultimately to go back home to

That sounds awesome! I would love more info! Is this an 09? What options?


Also, sorry as I do not know all the G8 terms but you mentioned SRM - what does that stand for? I have also seen other people mention another 3 letter abbreviation when mentioning a g8? Are these sub models like sport or something indicating sun roof and other options? Cant seem to find a clear answer anywhere on google or anything.

SRM stands for the color code sport red metallic. PBM is Panther Black, SBM is Stryker Blue, IOM is Ignition Orange, and PSM is Pacific Slate. Theres a few others but I can't remember the codes. In Manitoba you could expect to pay around 22 to 26 k for a fairly low mileage GT. I got my PBM GT from Alberta and brought it to Sask a couple months ago, and it ended up costing about 26 by the time I payed PST and got it inspected. It did include a few nice mods already, and there was only one G8 for sale in Sask at the time so I didn't have many other options. Keep an eye on kijiji, thats where i found mine, and I see theres a few nice ones in Manitoba!

Golden, thanks a bunch everyone for the info.

I would prefer a local car for many reasons, a main one being the salt and what not the eastern provinces use ( not sure about toronto but quebec and so on ) and of course availability / convenience.

Rich,
LOL... Ya we're pretty close! I've thought about entering just to see... It'd be nice to see a Canadian win it. Ahh well maybe someday. She's stored away now so no new pics coming for a while.

Cheers man!

I was in the same boat as you a few years ago. Retired in 2012 from up north in Mb.
I bagged a Canadian GT with 61,000 Km on it. Sport Premium package w sunroof and I stored it until the northern time ended. The guy was older and he was in a small accident with it. It was a garaged DD that he brought up from Round Rock Texas. I think that his wife made him sell it and he picked up a new Infiniti.

Very nice, where in? Ive been in Churchill MB for the past 3 years. Unsure how much longer ill stay... but I for sure want a car in the city at the very least for when im down on vacation / work, and to get back to when I do move back down. Buy some mods to line up and what not

I dearly miss having a ride I have pride and joy in, and that I truly enjoy driving.

I might be interested in selling this year, PM me when you are ready to buy, I should be more certain at that time. Mine has 42K km and has lots of extras added.

We decided to move down east. When I turned key on the GT for the first time and let it run I already felt like I knew the car. I had a stupid grin on my face all day man. Leave the suspension stock or go to FE3's if you intend to stay in Wpg. Roads out here are a lot better. Went to the Pony Corral on Grant to see where to park for the Sunday car meet and the guy waved me into the show.

And SRM is Sport Red Metallic.

As someone else who's had sporty fwd Pontiacs (3 GP GTPs), you will love V8 RWD.
