Don't you hate it when...

I always park out on the far end of the parking lot so no one will park next to me. But someone always does:




Must be something about this parking lot at Best Buy. Last time I was there someone parked their 2010 SS Camaro next to me. I didn't know that the G8 came in this maroon color.

Pure awesome.

I do the same thing whenever I spot an Evo X or G8 in a parking lot, depending on what I'm driving of course.

And if there is actually room next to them or not. There is this girl I always tend to visit, and occasionally we make Jewel Runs for food and stuff. There ALWAYS is a red Camaro SS parked in the very pack of the parking lot, clearly visible from the road and away from any cars. Once I get my G8 I might start parking next to it... though it is a really far walk.

I even have a little club at work now. A friend of mine has a new Genesis and she is more protective of her car than I am so I always park next to her. One of the VPs in his 2008 Audi S5 parks with us now also. And some guy in a Subraru Forester, havn't figured that one out yet.

That is too cool Maruader, nice Pic.

The maroon (Slate Red Metalic) was my second choice of colors for the G8 -- Grand had one on the showroom floor -- We thought about it, but I held out & waited for the Stryker Blue to arrive! Still happy with the choice.

You're right -- I had the Slate blue one on my mind -- was one on e-bay...OOPs... Still, SRM is a great color. Thanks for correcting my error!

I forgot about the sport red metallic. I was focused on the brighter red when I was shopping. Till the wife and kid talked me into the SBM. I love my Stryker. I get a lot of compliments.

Wyome - I do park on base, but you don't work weekends. And I am on the wrong side. But then again you couldn't park farther from your work than the bomb dump.
