From Shaking Hands Cool GXP!! Short initial impressions.

Still shaking, but a little better.

As we walked into the dealership service place, I see my Solstice up on the lifts. Took some photos of the underside - it was so clean!!

Since I was planning to do most of the work on the car by myself, the view under provided a wealth of info.

Took it for a spin (about a mile or so) and it felt good. Not great, but good. Exactly like holding your baby for the first time.

Didn't stall it the first time - just a little jumpy. Clutch release is very short.
Felt very tight. I was also wearing the wrong footwear - a pair of boots that communicated very little.

Here are some initial photos - rail dust and all. As we finished the paper work, it went real dark and massive thunderstorms rolled in. Some cultures think that is a good omen, but I was not willing to push my luck (40 miles to the safety of my home), so I reluctantly left my baby there - to be picked up early tomorrow.



Keep clicking NEXT..

Will post more. I think I might get some photos of my car being assembled inside the plant soon..

Thanks for the pics I hear from everyone that the first "spin" easily turns into >100 miles ... which is good for me, because I plan to go about 4-500 the first day.

Finally picked up my DEEP GXP last night…

Incredible thanks to Kathy and N2My Sol for the weekly updates! It made that waiting a little more bearable!












As far as a review of the car…I got back late last night and had to work all day today. So…during my lunch I put about 30 miles on it. Jumping on the highway…Oh My God! In the time it takes to sneeze…you are already at 100! At 100 mph, it still wants to keep going. You will have to really watch it with this one. It is too easy to just go!!!

The best word I can come up with is Insane!

Nice car UpTown. But I'd be pissed off if my dealer stuck his advertisement on the back of my GXP . I'd make him remove it!

I am sure I am going to need a lot of discipline to keep mine under 70 mph too (been waiting since July 05 myself )

It will come off in time, I am leaving it for a while since I am grateful for the great effort they put into getting it for me!!
