By 6/23/11, a new G8 GXP was almost impossible to find. In the spring of 2009, when GM was on the ropes, if you found a GXP, you were happy with the color and options available. The dealers were on a ration and they got whatever Pontiac sent them. Of course the options were minimal - Auto or Stick, Sunroof, interior color choice with some exterior colors. I found a local (an hour away) dealer that was getting a GXP but didn't know the color or options. I was able to use the GM tools that were available and knew it was a Stryker Blue, Auto, Sunroof before the dealer did and that it was still in the California yards. Tracked it from there and was at the dealer when it was delivered on the car carrier on a Thursday. Drove it home that Saturday 5/23/09. Those were exciting times.That must have been an awsome sight all those G8's to choose from! The good old days back in 2011..Ha Ha!
