When the sail panel issue became a major ordeal over the past several years, I posted months ago that Pontiac was in trouble, but nobody listened. I protested the NEW Firehawk idea, and nobody listened.

Can't say I am happy about how things came out, but customer service SHOULD always be #1 and Pontiac screwed it up and paid the heavy price.

David, no one is saying not to mod the car for enthusiasts. By all means do your thing, but DON"T USE THE FIREHAWK NAME!!!!! That is all anyone is trying to convey to you. Make the car as fast as you guys want, warranty it, whatever, just leave Firehawk out of it.
hahahahahahaha

Am I alone in thinking that the hood/trunk color combo looks horrible?

I haven't read every post on this topic regarding the pros and cons of the G8 Firehawk but I frequent the G8 board and some newbie recently posted his super rare 1 of 1 G8 Firehawk. What makes it so special and rare you may ask... it's not the standard GT with the L76 6.0L but the LS3 6.2L GXP version of the G8 converted into a Firehawk. Approximately 8 to 10 of these were built right when GM killed Pontiac and supposedly never sold through a dealer.

This name ordeal is REALLY bothersome.

I don't even own a FIREHAWK, but I wish I did.

yeah. they're actually really nice looking cars. nameplate aside, shame they couldn't make more of them and/or offered a cheaper set of options (like they're doing with the new camaros (minor upgrades with 90% of the appearance mods). And contrary to prior posts they actually made a few GXP Firehawks. i'm sure their value will keep going up as the G8 itself is out of this world in residual value right now (and has only gone up since the demise of pontiac).

crap cell phone pics from when they were building these and i had to pick up a bunch of stuff for tune time performance (friend's place)
