    Default Personal Invite to G8/GTO Owners iNternational Event to Base G8 Owners!

    I pop over into this thread periodically and read about some really neat things being done with Base G8s out there, and I keep hoping to see this stuff in person at G.O.N.E. (G8/GTO Owners iNternational Event). This will be the event's third year, and we have had only 2 Base G8s represented the first two years. They have been very nice rides, but I'd love to see more Base G8s join them. We had a number of Base G8 show and race tropies that got thrown away because the trophies were custom, and there were no cars there to win them. That is a shame!

    Please consider this a personal invitation to all of you Base G8 owners out there! We want to see your cars at this event too! It doesn't matter if your car is bone stock, lightly modified, or heavily modified. We have race and show classes to cover the range. Please join us this year, and show what you've got!

    Go to www.g8gone.com for event info and a link to the registration site.

    It is a real shame that more V6s do not show up. It is a great car. It is one that can hold its own against any 6 cylinder BMW 3 or 5 series. It is too bad that a Supercharger or turbo kit is not available. I love mine and know I would be hard pressed to find something comprable to replace it with.

    Still in my V6. Have located at least one Gt and one GXP. Trying to work a deal now on my car. Then again, sell me your SRM GT - LOL
