Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend, and also takes a moment to remember that it isn't just the start of summer. As we know, the summer Solstice is June 21 this year, the astronomical first day of summer.
It's really a chance to reflect on what made it possible to enjoy what we enjoy in the United States, and who made it possible. It's a sobering thought.
But it's also a time to enjoy yourself, because we have that luxury. So. What was the first song you heard on the radio- not iPod etc, a song played by a radio station, in your Solstice or Sky? I get to name two:
In late May 2008 I signed papers on a left-over 2007 Solstice GXP manual, in Cool. I got it for $26,500 on a 32K sticker, as a last year model and on Ricky Smith Pontiac's Memorial Day sale. I dropped 10K on the down payment. The very first song I heard on the radio of that car was AC/DC playing "Down payment blues". A good rare one to hear on the radio!
This year, I replaced that car which I traded on in 2012, with a 2008 Solstice GXP, manual, in Sly. The first song I heard on the radio was...AC/DC, playing "Shoot to Thrill".
Driving and working on a Sly 2008 Solstice GXP 5spd 260/260, and the worst-built 2012 LS3 Camaro 1SS to escape from Oshawa.
Gone but not forgotten:
2007 Solstice GXP 5 speed 290/340
Stored and needing to part ways with a 1970 Skylark Custom convertible I have owned since 1989 and turned into a GS455 clone. 462 with 7/8 primary headers, adjustable roller rockers, TA Performance Stage 1 aluminum heads, auto, Chevy 12 bolt, 3.31:1. Sadly a project car now but a driver from '89 to '06.
