Its been a fun ride but its time to move on. I realize the price is more than most G8's you will see for sale but being G8 lovers you should see the amount of time/money that went into this build.

2009 Pontiac G8, 15k original miles, 1 owner. The car was converted to the Australian version, Hsv Gts. I did this by having the parts shipped over by boat. Only selling because the car doesn't get driven and I'm limited on garage space.

I bought this car new and drove it 8k the first year and since have driven it well under 1k miles a year. I have over 25k in extras in this car through this Hsv Gts conversion. The car only gets taken to car shows. I did make two runs at the strip and couldn't get traction on either pass. It made passes of [email protected] with a 60 foot well over 2.0. The car should easily get well into the 11's with traction.

I will try and get better pictures in the next couple of weeks, unfortunately all my photos are trapped on photobucket.

The only negatives on the car; I need to install a new headliner. Current one has a hole from where a tv was located. I have a new one sitting in my basement. Shows tpms light since I couldn't get anyone to install sensors without snapping them off. Yes I lost 3 sensors before telling them to stop trying. It is showing an airbag light which is from a recall. Dealership wanted to reflash the computer and I told them to leave the light alone.

Asking $28,900

Can't fathom the complexity around attaching a tire pressure sensor to the valve stem. Left-loosey. Righty-tighty. Am almost certain it's a torx bit. Had to install a few myself since a tophat at a tire shop was trying to separate them with a mallet and metal rod. At any rate, best of fortune with the sale.
