Those of you friends with me on Facebook will know already, in April of this year I sold my 87 Cherokee and 09 G8 GT (I know, don't hang me). I bought a new 2016 GMC Sierra 1500. Fits us well and gets used three times as much as my G8 did, and I've already put ten times the miles on it in 6 months then I did in 12 months on my SSEi (3000 vs 300).
Here she is.

Looks great Matt!!! I love the All Terrains.

Miss the G8 yet?

It does look nice. Wish I'd known you were selling the G8 though! That's another car I've always considered adding to the collection.

Selling the G8 was something I thought about long and hard. I got an awesome offer I couldn't refuse. I do miss having a fast car, though. The truck is so versatile, now I have one I would hate to go without.

I can only imagine how much consideration you would have had to put into selling it. The car looked fantastic and you obviously took exceptional care of it. Different needs tend to change things a little. There's absolutely nothing wrong with a nice truck though!

The 5.3 is no slouch either for power, though if I had my way a new chevy with the 6.2 would be sitting in the driveway at my house
