Another G6 GXP

Just picked up a 2009 G6 GXP as my choice of winter cruiser. I'm impressed with the performance of the 3.6L V6. Just under 2,000 miles and I've found it a fun car to drive.

That's funny...you'll have to stand in line. Yeah, it's one of 56 Stryker Blue G8 GXP's made. I knew it was a special ride but I never knew it was going to be so unique. Still can't believe GM threw Pontiac to the curb. What a shame...

Actually in the G8 GXP, automatics have tested faster. Electronic shifting has come a long way. Nothing like shifting a manual gearbox to get your heart pounding, but no, it's a 6 speed automatic. You can select between normal and sport shift, which changes to more aggressive shift points or put it in manual mode and use the + and - to shift thru the gears. Auto comes with remote start, manual not. I use it for business during the summer, so opted for the auto. Of course finding a Stryker Blue GXP with either trans was a challenge in itself. There is still a big grin on my face when I drive it...

I'm always in the manumatic mode with my humble 4 speed First got it with my Grand Prix which had the shifters on the steering wheel, which is still a more convenient setup overall but I'm used to doing it from the floor now (behave!).
