Mach 1 is sold...
 
Mach 1 sold after a week on Auto trader. Sold for $14,500 with 53K miles.

I just found a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT with 23K miles up in Wisconsin Im going to pick up next Thursday.

I needed more room and had to part with the Mach but it went to a Mustang enthusiest as he has had 3 foxbodies before. So I know she's in a good place.

Beautiful new ride sir. Stings always get sold for either more room or a bed.

Soldier GT 05-12-2012 05:40 PM

I totally agree with rygi. Nice ride my man.. How does she feel compared to the Mach?

01GTDropTop 05-12-2012 08:12 PM

I dont know yet, I pick her up next Thursday. I am flying in to Chicago and then to Wisconsin to get her. Cant wait, I'll keep you all updated.

Picked her up and drove home from Chicago. Averaged 26mpg, not too bad. Car has a sunroof that I was not aware of, Added bonus!

This thing handles like it's on rails (much better than my Mach on Sportlines and Tokicos), drives like a BMW, has the room of an SUV and just the most comfortable car Ive driven. It is extremely quiet on the inside. Perfect.

glad you like the ride and it looks damn nice also. And we test drove one of those g8 gts when we were about to trade our gto and you are right it has ALOT of interior and trunk and is damn comfortable in the city and on the higway and of course there is the power from that L76 really cant go wrong with that holden its a nice all around ride. nice find and nice ride the prices on them seem to either be going up or staying steady.

very nice, good choice of car!! on another note i saw one of these and i guess the owner took off the pontiac badges and put on all the holden stuff on the rear but i didnt see the front so i didnt see what he did with that. Good luck with it!!

Looks nice, is it a stick or auto?

I may be wrong but I think only the g8 gxp comes with a 6 speed manual not the g8 gt I think the g8 gt has a 6 speed auto.

OOOO someone else that went LS from the Mach. I did the same but went with a '04 GTO.

Nice car! Congrats!

The GTs came with 6 speed auto and the GXPs came wit 6 speed manuals with an Auto option. Rare with auto (GXP).

Well, BLAST FROM THE PAST!

Im itching to get back into a Mustang. Im currently selling my G8 to get a '13 GT-track pack/recaro or '13 Boss.

How ya been Gents?

The new mustangs are good...but why are you selling it?

I am currently in Houston, on Recruiting Duty, and the Mustang crowd is ridiculous; i miss my mustangs and driving a manual.

I have done as much to this car as I am going to do, time for another project.

396rwhp
12.62@110.8mph

Fully bolted minus power adders, some suspension and nice audio upgrades ;)

smitty2919 03-10-2014 09:34 AM

Prob won't be too hard to get the same power from a Boss right?

It may not be much of a downgrade or upgrade as it would be a simple change of scenery....and adding a manual.
