The G5, unlike the entrance received by its more distinctly Pontiac brother, the G6, received a little bit less in the way of pomp, circumstance — and giveaways. Whereas the V6 G6 received the full might of an Oprah appearance — as well as the ensuing PR-gasm accompanying a give-away of 276 4-door coupes — the G5 saw itself with a slightly smaller random act of kindness. Specifically, a kind act of one. How touching, how sweet, how totally inexpensive was GM's little treat to a young car-loving lad dreaming of a design destiny in comparison to the Oprah-gy of the G6's entrance. Well, at least it was on The Today Show right? Yeah, but it was at 8:41 AM EST — is their demo even watching tv — hell, is the demo even awake at that ungodly hour?
