I don't think the public will care that much, but they'll probably be collectors to fellow Solstice owners

So, with all the available companies that do V8 conversions, how does one know the best one to use? I wouldn't think coming out of bankruptcy would give one a warm fuzzy feeling. I would like to have a V8 version but will not give up my current vehicle and would have to purchase a donor. Seems by the time I do that I would have more invested than what this vehicle is selling for. I really would rather avoid all the extra expense of purchasing donor, transporting to a select company, waiting possibly months to complete. Is there anyone else who is attempting to sell their V8? Please give me some feedback as weather is getting better and I want to move on something quickly. Thanks guy's!! (a newbie)

Maybe this would be the perfect donor car for your project.

First impression was that it was PS, then thought maybe the lighting was making the color Fresh look like baby blue, but then realized Fresh wasn't available in 06. Could be a repaint, just can't tell from the pics. I could contact the dealer but mainly posted to let others see it.

Selling an absolutely brand new in all respects never titled beautiful 2006 Pontiac Solstice. This car is perfect with no dings, scratches or dust. Collector Owned. A great chance to buy a low mileage as new Solstice for a reasonable price. I have a clean California Title in hand
