OH 555 Triple Nickel - Pontiac G8 GT (part 2)

Another short clip of OH 555 just north of the 78 junction with me leading, heading north. Very fun road, posted speed limit is 55 and is usually plenty through the twisties. Watch out for animals, kids, dirbikes/ATVs, amish buggies, and local traffic (we saw all of the above on some parts). Taken with a kodak Zi8 (EIS off, vol @ 50%) + wide angle lense mounted to the sunroof (panavise 809 with extension makes it a bit more jittery) + external sony condenser mic placed near the boot.

2009 Pontiac G8 GT Full Tour
THIS IS LIKE #1 or #2 ON MY TOP 3 LIST OF CARS I WANT!! I was on my way back from a job interview in Dallas, and as I came through Grapevine, I deceided to stop by my favorite GM dealer and see what they had in stock, and this white beauty was sitting front and center, and it was unlocked too. So I thought you people would like to see one of the last cars Pontiac was making before GM threw them in the crapper! IT MAKES ME WANT ONE EVEN MORE NOW!! If only there was some way to take one home for a weekend to see what its like, and then have no pressure to buy it once I have to take it back!!! =)
