That is awsome that he is ok. It took a roll pretty well i think. I like those rims on that car. I bet it looked pretty mean before all the dents...

I think it needed more stickers though, It would have prevented a few more dents. ;)

Is it just me, or does anybody else think it actually looks kind of awesome as a 5-door hatchback?

The driver was uninjured. It certainly makes me feel confident in my car.

Passenger compartment does not appear to be compromised at all. That is very impressive. I guess the CTS has all 5 star crash ratings for a reason.

How does he explain that to the wife, "somebody back in to me at shop-rite"!

I've raced SSCC numerous times, as well as worked the event. One thing my insurance agent was pretty specific about was, "You're not covered, and no we won't put a rider on your car. You wreck it, you're on your own".

Double ouch...

I had a feeling ccw made them and that's why i like them soo much. Im guessing they can make any size to fit the coupe?

That's Evolution Green, the same color as the coupe I just bought, should have the car sometime next week. I'm throwing 20" textured black Forgestar CF10's on it. I'll have some car porn for you all before the month is out :lildevil:

Great opportunity for someone to be the first on their block with a convertible CTS-V wagon.

tragic, Vagons are too rare for this nonsense. I suppose it did go down in glory though.

Anyone else notice the driver is blaming the car for the wreck?

According to Brock Yates the vehicle went into "ice mode" so the accident was a vehicle quirk, and not driver error. Mr. Brock please explain ice mode.

OK, found this explanation of ice mode. Says if you stab the brakes too hard the ABS thinks the tires are on ice and reduces brake pressure. I would think the "experienced race driver" here would know that.

I didn't know you knew me so well for someone who just joined.

Convertible? You know the early El Caminos were just wagons with the back part of the roof cut off and a bed put in place of the interior. Looks like a candidate for the first CTS-V pick up! Now that would be awesome.

I am getting ready to model an ATS in 3ds max. I need a top view of it though. Anyone have one?

Want to cut the roof of a wagon off at the B pillar and render an EL CTS-Vino? :)

JimmyH
05-13-12, 05:28 PM
I could. I could also draw a mustache on Mona Lisa.
So the answer is no :D

Pontiac was going to do an El Camino like version of the G8 just before they went under. Not sure it would be very useful and the front/rear weight balance would be MUCH worse...

if i remember correctly it was going to be called the G8 Sport Truck

http://cache.jalopnik.com/assets/images/12/2008/10/Pontiac-G8-El-Camino-01.jpg

and according to this report: http://jalopnik.com/pontiac-g8-sport-truck/
pontiac killed the plans for it before GM killed pontiac

that thing would make a the CTS-V wagon look like a high volume seller.
