I have a 2009 G8 GT and I'm hearing a clunking sound in my steering usually when I'm backing out of my driveway and pulling away. The steering doesn't seem loose or sloppy but the clunking is driving me crazy. I'm thinking it's my intermittent steering shaft but I'm not positive. Has any one else experienced this issue?
Do a search for threads about lower control arms. Sounds like that may be the issue.

230 of the First 888

# 230 of the First 888 is alive and well, and currently residing in sunny Los Angeles, California. At least, I'm assuming it's #230. Last 5 of the vin are 88230, and I have the First 888 badge on the trim above the glove box. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I want to know!

The car is a white GT model, with the 6.0 Ltr engine, and 6 speed auto trans. Fully loaded, extremely fast. Currently at 117,000 miles.

I picked up this baby off of a used car lot in Huntington Beach, Ca in 2009, and it's been my faithful steed ever since.

#230 has seen and done a lot of cool things in it's short time on the planet, and I thought I'd share a few with you. In it's time with me, #230 has driven across the United States twice, appeared on network television a few times (I will try to find photos), and it's passenger seats have cradled the rear ends of a few now famous faces, actors, comedians, a well known TV producer, and one of the Sex Pistols.

From 2010-2012, #230 had it's own reserved parking spot on the Warner Bros lot in Burbank, Ca, and has spent a significant amount of time on other studio lots in the Los Angeles area. Not to brag... okay, you caught me, I am bragging just a little... but this car has seen and done some cool things, and since it's a G8 forum, I thought I'd share. Sorry. Dont shoot me.

This car has never stopped impressing me. It is hands down the best vehicle I have EVER owned, and it's a damn shame they're still not in production today, because god knows I'd buy a brand new one in a heartbeat. In the 6 years I've owned the car, other than regular maintenance, the only thing I've had to do to it is replace the alternator, and recently, the radiator, and even that was only because the nozzle snapped off. The radiator unit itself functioned fine. Other than that, the car is in tip top, and still giving the Challengers and Chargers of LA a run for their money.

That being said, does anyone on here have a list of production dates for the First 888? Near as I can tell from a vin decoder I found on here, mine was built some time in 2008 in Australia at the Oz (?) plant. I would love to know the date this baby rolled off the assembly line. I would be more than happy to provide the complete vin number if someone out there can tell when the car was manufactured.

RIP Pontiac
You are sorely, SORELY missed...

Number 1 Apparently Available

"Smoke Signals", the POCI monthly mag, has G8 Serial Number 1 listed in the "For Sale" section. The ad says it has clocked only 750 miles since new and was a test car for Performance Pontiac Magazine. The colour is PBM, ad says leather interior, has V6 wheels, so I am guessing it's a V6. It's in Florida, 727 area code.
