Hello from Toledo, Ohio

Post by firstdue » Thu Nov 07, 2019 10:55 pm

Hello all!! I currently own a Liquid Red 2009 G8 GT that was purchased with 48 miles on it and sits right now with about 8,000.

Searching for a new daily driver. I had been watching the SS's but it's too much car for a daily.
The Caprice would be a perfect fit.

Red Hot would be my first choice and I realize that may be next to impossible. Silver and Alto Grey would be 2nd choices.

Lots of great info here!!

IIRC, there was a red hot one on deals.gov listed in the for sale section.

EDIT: Yep:

But the sale is closed. It went for $11K and change.

Oh, and welcome!

Thanks!!

Yes, i had seen the red one on deals.gov. Was really tempted to bid on it, and probably would have now that i see how rare they are.

I've had both black and white cars before. Black looks great, especially with tinted windows. But they are a pain to keep clean.

Pain to keep clean, but man does that paint look nice in the sun! Ours is PBM, and I do sigh in resignation that it'll get dirty when I have to pull it out in the rain. :(
