2008 Pontiac G8 GT: Kick That Engine Cover To The Curb

August 10, 2009

I've had enough of plastic engine covers. Especially on a car like our long-term Pontiac G8 GT. I opened the G8's hood this morning to check its oil (yes it has an old fashioned dipstick) and was disappointed to find a big ugly cover completely shielding the Pontiac's all-aluminum V8 from my sight. Why?

If I owned this car that engine cover would spend all of its time on my garage shelf.

What do you think?
