Spotted on the Road

On one of the motorcycle forums I am on we have a thread call the same. It is a great place to recognize others, and tell what you saw.

Pictures are not required, but always nice.

Spotted this at On The Border in Woodbride, VA today on the way out from lunch!



Very clean NA!

dear God I wouldn't even want to know that person because of the defacing of that beautiful car with those awful auto zone stick on vents. Disgusting.

Jim: I like the idea of this thread.

Stayed at the Benson Hotel in Portland the last few days. While there I noticed a pristine 2006 black Solstice a few times. Turned out it was the bellmans !

Also also saw a silver one cruising around town.

Check out Western Canada Kappa Club on Facebook !

A coworker's GXP. It is very clean, and rarely driven in anything but good weather.



He also owns a 2000 Firebird Formula in pristine condition.

I didn't click on that thread, and not like it matters if they aren't on here.

lol, started one of these on the southwest forum a few months back and suggested it be moved to the general forum. im going to start posting everyone here. i love the idea of the forum because it lets you know how many of us are actually out there. its also really interesting when you start seeing the same members over and over again.

I need to bring my camera more often.

There's a black Sky NA a few blocks from my house. Gorgeous car.
And I've seen a silver solstice a few times while driving near my neighborhood. My wife has spotted that Silver Sky a few times as well. (She doesn't know the difference, so she keeps mistaking that for my silver GXP).

Spotted Fobbit Frost, fellow forum member and Solstice owner, driving up the street in my home town while I was on the way to my son's baseball game. I recognized his car from the pictures he posted here on the forums (hence I didn't take another picture for this thread). Followed him into a parking lot, pulled up beside him when he stopped and said "hey I know you, saw you on the Solstice forums, I'm Sluggo!".

I should have had someone take a photo of us parked side by side. I mean there was two Solstices from the same enthusiast group together, so I guess it was technically a mini-meet, allbeit in a UPS parking lot
