    :ugh: Sorry but imo Firehawk = Firebird not the 4 door G8. I might be a little bit more okay with this if we got a G8 coupe but I don't know. I mean shit with all the badge re-engineering going on at GM why in the hell not give Pontiac the Firebird / Trans Am back :dunno:

    I'm sure slp would love to hear your thoughts on how to run their company. What would you like it to be named?

    Idon't think it belongs on anything other than a Firebird, but who gives a shit. Pontiac will probably shut their doors in a few years anyway.

    The use of the name on this car has stirred up a shitstorm on F-body sites.

    Having owned a Firehawk, I am glad to see it again...but it is strange to see it on a G8. It just doesn't match to me. And I love the G8...I'm replacing my GTO next year with one.

    I love some of the comments on the Firehawk board...

    • It's making my Firehawk less valuable... It's a slap in the face to current Hawk owners... really? How?
    • They should have asked every Firehawk owner (or every member of ls1tech.com) if it was ok to use the name... who cares what current Hawk owners think? What company would base their market research on a poll of 5,000 current Hawk owners or the members of 1 message board?
    :ugh2:

    More power to SLP for making it happen.

    exactly... and that's what I've said since the first time I heard the news... I'm happy to see SLP back in the GM game... and can't wait to see what the numbers are on these cars.

    More like asking the C4 ZR-1 owners if they could use the ZR-1 name on a Malibu.

    Yeah, it's around a decade newer, so I hope it would be.

    I think it's lame that they're using the firehawk name on the G8

    Funny, it seems like names dont mean anything anymore to Detroit. Its a stupid rehashing of ideas rather than actually being creative and inventing something new. That's U.S. Automakers problem. A serious lack of creativity.
