History
My dad purchased it, but now is unable to care for it and has left it to me. Super fun car! In dealing with lifes struggles, and dealing with my dads issues, the responsible side of my brain says "have fun and take care of it, but when the time comes to renew the daily driver, trade this in too.", but every time I get behind the wheel, my brain screams "KEEP IT! THEY'LL HAVE TO PRY IT FROM YOUR RIGOR MORTIS FINGERS!". Just about at 82k miles now.

Soon after it coming to me permanently, I hit a deer on the highway on my morning commute. Was going about 60, and it just flipped that sucker over me. The roof was down and I watched it go over, it brushed my newly shaven head as it flew past. It was wild! But I really lucked out, no real damage besides cosmetic to the hood, bumper, and a little from the pushback on the fenders and doors. Bodyshop and insurance has it looking new in no time.
2006 Pontiac Solstice (Silver)

Modifications

Drivetrain
I'm no mechanic, and this is just the base model, so I'll probably just keep it stock and in good running order. My "street racer" days have long passed, I just like to cruise in this thing and blast metal to the annoyance of everyone in range.
Interior
Still very clean, although the passenger side door latch is busted, and the cig lighter doesn't produce a charge.
Exterior
Non yet, want to add a wind restrictor at some point. Had I my druthers, I'd give it a slick black with blue accent paint job, but that isn't in the books, and I don't see it ever being.
Audio
I'd like to get a nice double din screen system that has Android Auto interface and backup cam support.
Suspension

Wheel and Tire
