Automatic convertible top??? Or are you referring to being RHD courtesy of a reversed picture?

Other than the price I don't see anything rare about it

I like the color combination a lot too.

The RHD is what realy caught my eye

But the Automatic Top is unique too

There is no "automatic top". Look at the pics of the trunk...there is nothing different, no motor or additions to make it "automatic".
Besides, I bet I can put my top up or down faster than any "automatic top".

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!

Looks like a clean car. Does not have RHD as the first photo appears. I don't know if it's the camera or what but the top seems to be a lighter tan, then our oem, and I like it much better. The green color looks nice but was available all years and isn't the rarest. Price seems high compared to around here but may be a good price where it is located. I agree with Mom that it doesn't appear to have an automatic top as it it advertised. Don't know if anyone has developed a powertop mod.

I think some of the photos were hijacked from somewhere else.

As mentioned, some photos are RHD, but most photos are LHD. I counted three photos of a RHD .... reason: in manufacturing, the radio antenna is on the opposite side of the car from the driver wheel. I saw at least three photos with the antenna on the left side of the car.

Whether they are hijacking photos OR messing with photos (for some reason), I would question their motivation first before getting too interested in their car.

Oh, and I've never met anyone with the name "Automatic"!

The color combination Envious with a Tan Top and Sand and Steel is not rare but very uncommon I've only seen one other Envious Kappa in the Cleveland area in the 7 years I've owned my car and it had a black top and black interior . In all the places I have been with my car including big events like the Woodward Dream Cruise I've had more then one person comment that they have never seen a car like mine and that includes more then a few Kappa owners .As for the top mine was a lighter shade similar to the car pictured before I started to treat it with RaggTopp .I looked for quite a while before I bought mine and had a friend who is a dealer find mine at a GM dealers auction and he told me it was the only one he has ever seen .

We have 4 or 5 of the green with neutral top in Solstice and Sky's here locally. The Dragon is one of them. I like the color very much.

Color blind, description says the interior is black...
I am in the Cleveland area, and have seen 3 Black Solstices, 2 red, and a silver.
No other Dark Blue (Ming) like my car though....

Yes, so obvious what was done. Instead of posting I sat back yesterday and enjoyed the replies.
