I'm looking for any primary source documentation on the alleged 54 units of 2006 Solstice in RPO 34U Mean (yellow).

Many years ago, member 56XK140 posted a production list on this forum which indicated 54 units of 2006 Solstice in 34U Mean. To date, it has not been verified.

What do you know about the 2006 Mean (yellow) Solstice production?
Was 34U applied late in MY2006 production (prepping for 2007 SKY and Solstice production?), and therefore a high-2006 VIN?
Do you own a 2006 Mean Solstice?
If you worked at Wilmington, do you recall any 2006 Mean Solstice production?

Any MY2006 34U history is appreciated.

yeah - I was wondering too...
The 2006 "print book" does not have 34U listed, but the 2007 print book does have 34U.

this document ( which I think is unofficial ) does list 34U for 2006

The only mean/yellow/34U 2006 Solstice I have ever seen is this one:

RedOne07: Yes, discussed, but not the focus of that thread. This thread focuses on finding primary sources for 34U on 2006 Solstices and any information pertaining to it. Let's use this thread to focus on 34U in 2006.

That's the only thing I have outside of calling the heritage center and asking them.

Don't confuse "proof" with possibility or probability. The possibility or probability of pink is zero. The possibility or probability is high to have of one of the next year's new colors being applied (in our case, 34U) to a few cars at the end of the current years' production. In GM assembly plants, this was an often-seen occurrence. I could give examples. But that's not what this thread is about. This thread is about who knows what about 34U in 2006. Just staying on point.

Even though he has not been active for five years, a few days ago I took a shot and messaged member "56XK140," who originally posted the color chart with the 54 units of 34U for the 2006 Solstice. No response, which was not unexpected. So, the search for primary source documentation concerning 34U in 2006 continues.

I have a 2006 solstice painted in 34U paint WA9414. It is 13713 in the production run of 06. It was completed Oct.06 which was a Tuesday Oct. 3rd. Now I don't know if there were 54 of
Mean Yellow painted as a test bed for 07 but if there was I have one I think. The car is titled 07 but was completed in 06 and had to be painted before 07. Maybe the 54 if there was 54 was a true test bed.

Cars are defined by Model Year they are assigned to and not by the Calendar Year in which they were built.

Model Year changeover typically happens in June or July meaning that roughly half of any Model Year's cars were built in the "wrong" year.

YourSolstice was built in Calendar Year 2006, but is a Model Year 2007 car. The last 2006 Solstice was built near the end of June 2006, and the first 2007 was built near the beginning of June 2006.
