Any Coupes in AZ?

Just curious. Never seen one on the road, never saw any on the locators. I bought mine in KY and shipped it back here to Phoenix. Are there any other coupes in the state?

Welcome. Mine has been off the road for a long time and should be firing back up again in the new year with over a dozen new engine components, all new engine wiring, new clutch, new tranny, some new paint and a bunch of interior touches.

Alleged by my brother to be rain. In Phoenix, no less.

Welcome to S.AZ ... I'll keep an eye out for your Silver COUPE and hope to see it running around Tucson (or if you head to Sierra Vista / Fort Huachuca /Tombstone / Bisbee area let me know)

MY Mysterious Coupe was recently purchased by a gentleman in Sedona who sent it back East for the V8 conversion ...

I relocated my Sly GXP Coupe from California to San Tan Valley last year. Is the club still active?

There is a very active Sky/Solstice club in Phoenix. We come over occasionally to a show in a big parking lot around a Mc Donalds. Don't remember the name. 1000 cars is the claim. Have seen two coupes there. The ugliest one I have ever seen (admit I am not a fan) battleship gray, non metalic, painted wheels, NA. About a year ago, 44th Sky bought a Black GXP Coupe, he lives in Fountain Hills. He is active with his car. PM him he can tell you what is happening around town, I am sure.

There are at least three other coupes in the Phoenix area, all three members of the Sol/Sky club at one time or another. The car show skersfan refers to is at the Pavillions shopping center at Indian Bend and the 101. Saturdays during the cooler months. Several hundred vehicles total; upwards of 1000 on some days wouldn't surprise me. Usually 10-20 Sol/Sky members there when the club goes, but they don't hit every Saturday. Although I'm still a member, it's been a couple of years (?more) since I attended a show. Never encountered the battleship gray coupe so that would be a fourth vehicle. 44thSky would bring it to 5.

I meet some really nice people from AZ at the NASSAM in Blackhawk. I had the Sly Coupe. I would like to get together with these people again but I seem to have misplaced there contact information. If any one from the Phoenix group sees this please post here or PM me.
Thanks.

Last week I saw a grey coupe driving northbound in far north Scottsdale on Scottsdale rd about Greenway to loop 101 area.

I've been to the Scottsdale Pavilions show several times but have not once seen another Solstice or Sky other than my own. I did see an old Opel GT there once.

Would love to get together with other Sky/Solstice owners in AZ for a ride. Of course this time of year gotta be up north where its cooler, Flagstaff, Williams, Showlow area etc!!

The Car Nuts Santa Cruz Valley Car Nuts - Tubac, Green Valley and Tucson Arizona holds a show in January in Tubac. Last year drew 3 Kappas and one coupe (mine)
A bit of a drive, but a group from Dallas Ft Worth brings 15 or so Kappas to Kerrville TX to run the Twisted Sisters. Waten this forum for Kerrville 19.
