I finally got mine! It came from TN a couple weeks ago. Left lower bumper/grill insert was missing on arrival :( but I made the shipper pay for a new one. Hope to meet some of you guys and gals in the near future.

Great, my GXP came from Tennessee as well. I drove mine back to Colorado in 2010.
I got to drive it at low elevation first, 6500ft sure drops the HP.

I'm not in CO, but would love to see some pics of that Chevelle/LS swap.

Here she is fresh off the transport truck from Tennesse.

There was a wasp nest in the void between the trunk lid and the weather stripping. Front bumper cover is a little rough from rattle can touch ups. Looking to swap someone with 6cyl tail lights,add the shark fin antenna,some GXP mufflers,tune up with Delco plugs,change to oil to Mobile 1,get some spark plug wires with less resistance and remove that hideous plastic snow disc of an engine cover to expose the beauty of the V8 engine. Not in that order.

...oh yea I forgot I installed a pair of GXP mufflers too. Next up I ordered a shark fin antenna through our group buy,(thanks guys),changing the oe spark plug wires to some Taylor Thundervolt 8.2MM wires in red,and will soon answer my own question if you can use a Rotofab radiator cover with a Spectre Cold Air Intake.

These cars mod so easily and so well. Here is an update added iPod integration to the factory radio unit.Thanks speedisking! Added a Shark Fin Antenna. Thanks Visual Garage! Removed the intake manifold sound deadner/top cover or like I like to call it the "heat soak retainer". Modified the Spectre Cold Air intake to clear the Rotofab radiator cover. YES it can be done!

Unfortunately,it looks like I might have to put the G8 up for sale,just as I was really starting to enjoy her! Just too many cars at the house and my truck becomes a little more practical as winter sets in. Don't have to sell her but it's probably the right thing to do. Asking $19,500 firm,has 85000 miles with GM powertrain warranty to 100k or May of 2013. PM me if you or someone you know is looking for a White Hot GT.
