Seen a few G8s lately saw an SRM turning from New Britain ave in Hartford onto Newington rd. By Batchelder school 2 days ago. Saw an MgM one coming off route 9 in New britain. And just yesterday saw another MGM getting off 84 West onto South Main st. In West Hartford. Seen more now than when I drive mine in the summer.
They've gotten pretty cheap lately. Many are changing hands I would say.

Mini meet this Saturday in Rocky Hill

Wow I couldn't tell you the last time I posted here. I'm heading up to Silas Deane Auto in Rocky Hil, CT for an alignment. Il be there at 9:00. Anyone in the area swing on by so we can do what gear heads do best...check out each other's car and talk.

FYI I'll be there in the G8 as the SS is still in Detroit.

Just a few "Minor" Mods

2.9L Whipple Supercharger (Painted to match the car)
High Lift Cam
Head Work
Twin Disk Clutch
Short throw Shifter
Oil Pump Upgrade
Fuel System Upgrade
Drag Radials
Few other minor supporting mods

I already installed a Roto-Fab Intake, Kooks Headers, High Flow cats and Cat back. Car put down 409 RWHP after i put those mods on it over the summer. I'm shooting for at least 700 RWHP without Methanol, E85 or pulley changes. Should be an interesting BEAST!:driving:

Hey guys, new G8 owner here. I picked up a Grey G8 Gt from Jersey. It used to be Pedders' test car, changed hands a couple times, and the guy I bought it from said the owner before him was in CT. It has a D series procharger, pedders stuff, 1500hp alxes and one piece DS, forged rods and pistons with stock crank, 222/230 cam, stock heads, built trans and camaro wheels. It's a blast to drive, and I look forward to some great drives and track use from it.

RO, sounds like a killer SS, looks like I'll have to up my game!

Not sure if they're here, but I spotted a Black GT on the way home on the Berlin Turnpike today near Bertuccis. Gave a thumbs up as I crossed traffic at the light but not sure you could see me because of the rain.

Yes....that was me. Not many of us around these days. I haven't seen anyone in several months, then I saw you last weekend and then yesterday evening. Hey, do you know a good local shop? I need to get a drivers rear wheel bearing replaced. Let's plan a meet as the weather is getting better.

I know a couple people who have used main street auto and they seemed decent, but I've not had to use them yet, knock on wood.

I'm doing heads and cam swap in June if you want to stop by.
