Well you know My name is Jeff and I saw this car 2 years ago at the Bay Side Expo center in Boston.. It was the concept one with the 2.2 liter engine 6 speed 220 hp supercharge. So listening to the pontiac news i heard that they are making the car( THANKS BOB) soo I went to my dealership and asked the first guy i saw,, I asked him(You guys make commission) he says yes i do why I was like well i heard you guys are building the solstice i want one ,,try as hard as you can to get me this car..Soo i have been waiting for 2 years for theis car then my dealership called around may saying something about the apprentice and the whole early order program. Soo i did everything and put my name in and everything. Gave the paper i printed out to the dealership and waited for april 14 at 2:00. My dealership then called saying that i didnt get one,, I was soo upset and pissed. Then 2 weeks passed and dealer called saying that there was something wrong with the area code and ca did not read the new england 02346.. soo they are not just building 1000 they are building 1200 .... 200 for New England.. And soo i just got a call from my dealership friday 9/16/05 saying that my car has been built and is being shiped..Soo any day now i should be getting a 2006 solstice black with leather cant wait...

That zip code thing was a bummer, I too tried to get one but it kept throwing it out. However, with all the problems with the first 1000 I'm glad I didn't get in. Some of those cars have been bayed for repairs several times. Now ,my is on it's way to Ct. and might be here today or tomorrow. Pass inspection like a charm, first time. Boy I'm sure glad things worked out like they did.

That means nothing, There are only 1000 limited editiuon. Your dealer doesn't know what the heck he's talking about. What they did with the zip codes that were not accepted (New England) and I'm from Ct. They gave these dealers one priority zero zip allocation that was to be built right after the first 1000.But they are reg. cars nothing special about them. My vin is 1178 , but just a regular car.Tell you dealer he should get his story straight.

It really isn't a big deal. The only difference is the VIN # and the First 1,000 emblem on the dash. While I do feel that the emblem is nice looking, it does appear a bit out of place on the dash...

Yes.....OK....Keep telling yourself that and maybe it will come true. I think more than a 1000 people would disagree with you. :yesnod:

I don't think having a first 1000 is a big deal. I did try for one, but with all the quality issues one after another I'm glad I didn't get one. Nothing against you people that did. ( have to say this befor birdliver takes it the wrong way)

Still in the works-waiting for cars to arrive, details to come... but we're definitely planning to plan! The only 'milkmaid' in the group, is moi, as far as I know, but I'll be driving my own *hope* *hope*...

Most people wouldn't consider it necessarily a good thing to buy one of the very first of a new model to come out, right? Obviously there were some problems with these cars. I would probably steer from owning own (of the first 1K) more likely than go out of my way to get one at this point. My dad warned me that this would happen. He should know, he makes the H-3 at the Shreveport plant. He also mentioned to try to get one that wasn't made on a SATURDAY, if I could help it. :lol:
