Was your GXP manual? That would be the only reason why I would trade an unique car with a car that everyone even grandma has. Don't get me wrong that camaro looks very clean, But I personally like cars that nobody has, How often do you see a g8? I would put a nice Procharger and cam and made that GXP 780hp to the wheels an unique machine.

That is done right, Bo! Power/Stance/Wheels/Paint are all perfect!
The only thing I would change is removing the stickers on the windshield.

Agreed. Similar to the Corvette, the only problem with the new Camaro is that there is a ton of them driving around. But as a vehicle, they are superior in performance to the G8.

My GXP was a manual. I didn't feel comfortable building the car up the way I wanted because of the rareness of the car. I know there are some out there but I didn't want to do it to one.
Stickers.....lol, I don't think the previous owner was on the interstate leaving before the wife and I had razerblades out.

Yep. 22" ice skates. That's what they are like when the boost guage moves out of vacuum.
Got the OBX cat back on now: sounds good with ear buds in.

Nice rims.. Dig the forge stars... I have to say 22's are f-ing too big, but they sure do make the stance on the car.
