Shout out to the local guys

Wanted to say "Hey" to the Cali members. I hope to be joining the ranks of Cali G8 owners soon.

If everything works my way, I will have a Stryker Blue G8 GT to drive as my occasional commuter (daily driver will be the old 1999 Toyota Avalon until it dies) and weekend cruiser. I am going to try to work a deal on a G8 this weekend, but who knows how that will go.

Thanks. It's sorta coming down to a time issue. We need to get something and there isn't much out there for G8's that I want. The deal near me (Fresno) doesn't look like it's going to work.

I don't have a G8. Didn't make the deal. At this point, it's not looking like I will either. They still have the 2 blue ones at the dealer in Fresno, but last time I called, they were not willing to deal low enough. Now my wife has me looking at Infiniti M's and Lexus GS series.
