A Maryland judge issued an $85 fine to the owner of a Pontiac G8 GT for illegal tail lights, despite being factory-installed and approved by the US Department of Transportation. She's promised to keep fining him. Judicial activism, FTL!
Aussie auto journalist Thomas Reynolds knows of Jalopnik's painful love affair-from-a-distance with the Aussie-only 603 HP, V8-Powered G8-mimicking Walkinshaw Holden SS-V Superwagon. So he snagged one and went to Walkinshaw's shop to demand they bring it to us!
One of the best performance sedans GM ever built, the Pontiac G8 GXP, is dead. The Aussies still get a Holden version, and a wagon. Heck, this one from Walkinshaw Performance packs 603HP. Wagon. V8. Supercharger. Sometimes the world's unfair.
OK, so when we said this was the last Pontiac G8 GXP left on a dealer lot, we may have been mistaken. But it looks like, after a search of AutoTrader inventories, there now really is one last Corvette-engined Pontiac.
