Congrats to VegasNate and incon3037R!


First and foremost I would like to thank Boomer for taking such a great photo of Nate and my rides. Thanks to Nate for posting the photo and giving me the honors of writing something. Lastly I would also like to thank every member who voted for us Vegas boys.

Before purchasing my G8 I my daily driver was a 1997 front wheel drive turbo charged Nissan 200sx that put 421 whp and 375 ft lb. YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, I know incon037r is a ricer!!!

The reason I chose to get rid of the Nissan is because I was turning the big 30 at the time and thought I needed to move into something a little more befitting my age.

After test driving several other imports IE; G37, IS350 and Hyundai Genesis (V8), my buddy called me up who drives a GTO told me about the G8 GT which I had never heard or seen before. Once I test drove the G8, I was some what reluctant since my Nissan was so much faster. After a week or so of researching it and looking at photos, the aggressive looks of the G8 got me hooked. I ordered one from Findlay Chevrolet through there Pontiac store in Arizona and it was delivered to my front door the same week.

Being that this was my first rear wheel/ American car that i have ever owned I was unsure what direction I wanted to go for look wise. So I told myself that I would stick to what I know and encompass my import heritage and use the styling ques I was accustomed to. After I started modifying the exterior I fell more in love with the G8 especially since I was getting compliments on a regular basis, which is something I never got in my Nissan. When I started adding power adders I realized how well the motor took to modifications and how much torque I've been missing out on.

I will always have a soft spot for fast imports as you can see from my styling ques, but I'm happy with the G8. Everyone already knows Nate's mods!!! So I've listed mine below
