I thought he was going to say that the G8 is the worst Pontiac because it is not a Pontiac at all. It is a Holden.

But, I tend to think well of people until they suggest otherwise...

Your memory must be turning to **** because that's a '73 GTO. They didn't make a 75 GTO.

I read somewhere that G8 meant Grand Prix 8th Gen and G6 was Grand Am 6th Gen. The rest was to line up with the new names with the exception of the Solstice, Vibe and cannot remember the others.

Yes. They are a few mm off from the bolt pattern but it is like fractions of a mm.

i had a guy come up to me at a gas station a few weeks back asking about my G8, talking about how you don't see many of them around anymore. i always enjoy those convos because there are maybe a handful of G8s in my area, it's nice when people actually recognize your car.

i agreed with him and gave the whole schpiel about Pontiac shutting down, they only built these for two years, etc. and then he said "that's a grand prix, right?"
