Did you know that the Pontiac G8 is the best getaway car ever? Well you do now. One Missouri car thief has been able to elude authorities at least a half-dozen times in a stolen Pontiac...V8... RWD... FTW.
According to CBS St. Louis, a man came to Century Dodge Chrysler Jeep in Westville Missouri to test drive a 2008 Pontiac G8. I can only assume that he chose this car because of the savings over the much more expensive and boring looking Chevrolet SS. He liked it so much that he took the keys and never came back.
Since then, authorities say that the Pontiac has been in at least six chases with police, who have yet to track down the subject. So either this G8 has some serious modifications or the driver is one wild wheel-man. I guess Missouri police don't have any V8 powered Caprice Interceptors in the fleet.
The stolen Pontiac has Missouri dealer plates with the number D571JD and the suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20's, 5'11", weighing 160 pounds, with a goatee. Anyone with any information regarding the case is asked to contact Wentzville police Detective Roth at 636-639-2127 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
