Unhappy When Will It Be Built In The Usa?

For now the "thunder from down under" is being built in Australia. GM has announced plans to phase the production to US plants. But when...

The plan for now is to ship only 30,000 G8's a year up from Aussie Land. It's a great plan to get the car out to us fast, but that also means less US jobs! I really want to buy a G8 that was built in the good old US of A!

Does anyone have some insight into when the G8 will truly be an all American muscle car?

As far as I know, they aren't going to stop producing it in Australia. They will produce right hand drive G8's there, and wrong hand drive G8's up here for us. So anywho, When!!!!??

P.S. I'm a proud American and I think Australians are awesome.

My G8 was involved in a slight collision..I've been waiting for months for all the replacement parts. Shipped from Australia.
