Thanks to Jalopnik and the dealership finding a small and now patched "loophole in the wording on the contract" ... these 13 cars are probably unicorns that may be plagued with registration and/or insurance problems, if they ever made it for final paperwork in the first place.
With Jalopnik picking up the story, no doubt it went viral, which got GM to notice. I wonder if intermixed within that dealerships many many many phone calls that day, they got one from someone high up the food chain in GM that maybe threatned legal action or whatnot.
Those cars are totally gone from the online website now.
We'll have to see if we see ~ 13 new threads in the upcoming weeks, "hey everyone, I don't have a g8 but I have it's FUGLY brother that I bought from this dealership......" LOL
The car has potential, but not in it's current "looks" department. I'm kinda glad that this first round will NOT be really available to the general public.
And after these cars get to auction, after being beat on 20+ hours per day through normal LEP duties (no offense to LEP intended!) ... it would be interesting to see what's still working and/or what issues and history these "blues brothers police auction cars" really had over their Service Lifetime.
