Seven years on this forum

Joined back in November 2005, before I even got my car, I was waiting on delivery. I got a black NA on December 23, 2005, drove it for a little over a year and got a 2007 Yellow GXP in March of 2007. Longest I have ever owned any car. It has almost bankrupted me adding goodies but I still drive it every day and I still love it. It's getting a new clutch for Christmas. Made a lot of friends here and even a few enemies, some gone to other cars many still around.

LOL

I must be a NOOB,
Came to the forums in summer of 07, bought and gifted the Sky (Green Dragon) to my wife for her birthday on 30 Oct, and bought my GXP in November (Punisher).

So its only been five years for me.

But I do have two Kappas, one of each flavor.

Hmm, maybe that means me? Not so sure tho, 'cos I bought mine new (albeit NOS) - but only 3 years ago. Lurking on the forum a bit before that, but only joined once I got my car.

I saw the forum when the Solstice first came out, but didn't hang around as the NA wasn't of interest to me.

Then they stepped it up and I joined in 2007 to hold a watching brief on what these cars were about, but still wasn't thrilled about the styling of the converts and would likely never have bought one.

Then I saw my first coupe - fell in lust and bought it new in Aug. 2009 and it has been downhill since then, so I guess I've been on 3 years as an owner and 2 years before that just sniffing around.

I joined in April of 07. I had bought a new 07 GXP. I went to the Nationals that year and fell in love with so many new Friends that are still my Friends today! In April of 09 I bought another new GXP so I would make sure I would have one for years to come! I guess I qualify.
