Drove a Pontiac G8, now I'm really jonesing for the Camaro

I had a little time to kill this afternoon so I stopped by Courtesy Pontiac- Acura in Lexington to look at a Pontiac G8 up close. Salesman was very nice when I told him I was just looking. I mentioned that I was saving up a down payment to buy a Camaro when it comes out and he asked if I'd like to drive the G8.

I took a 20 minute or so spin in a black GT. It was a kick @$$ car. If the Camaro wasn't coming, I do believe I'd be getting one of those. I imagine the Camaro will be built just as tight and the G8's exhaust note was perfect. 360 horsepower felt really good, so the 400+ we're expecting in the Camaro should be perfect, right? It really whet my appetite, even though I didn't do any burnouts or J- turns in a car with only 25 miles on the odometer.

If any of you in the Central KY area are looking for a Poncho, give Courtesy Pontiac a shot. If they treat you that good when you tell them up front that you have no intention of buying a car, imagine how they must be if you ARE planning to buy!

Well speaking of the G8 me and some buddies went looking at new cars yesterday. The G8 /v8 is verry nice it was one of the 888/ a collector car the salesman said as we saw 3k mark up . It was the only v8 they had the rest were v6 models for 30k. Iam wondering if the v6 will sell it seems to much ? So we then went to DODGE looking for a Challenger but no luck. They had 3or 4 oranger Daytonas, SRT8s and one blue SUPERBEE ALL NICE BUT 40K OR MORE. So next door we go to FORD 6 or 7 ROUSCHs one supercharged auto trans even 2 of the 510 hp P51 cars 67k. Made us wonder how much the Z28 and SS CAMARO will be iam thinking over 30K for the Z and over 35k for the SS.And how much will gas be by then ?
