Well well well,

Yesterday, (11/23/05) I took delivery of #1715. This car is amazing. I picked her up at 4:00, and did the paperwork and drove off. I never thought Id even get this...and for a first car too! The looks you get in this are crazy! People speed up beside you just to catch a glimpse of what it is! So I took her home, reversed her into the garage and literally all of my neighbours came over to see it. All I got was great compliments. As soon as I closed the garage door to go inside, it started snowing. And in fact, 28 hours later, it still is. We have about 5 inches of snow. I managed to escape danger and narrowly avoid a snowy drive home. Phew! The people in the dealership were like whoa! your getting THAT (and pointing) car? I replied, "Well yes, you see I..." Then they would interupt with disbelief. It was awesome! I walked into the dealership and sure enough, there she was, with a nice red ribbon, balloons and a phamphlet on the front. To make things even more cooler, about 20 people were applouding! :willy:
Everything is pretty good on the car. There is fit problem with the front passenger side where the bumper hits the yellow side marker. Its off a little bit. But thats, ok, because I have a solstice, and I would rather have one with a minor fit problem than no solstice!

Here are some pics of it at the dealer, me in the car and a few pics in my garage! Enjoy!...and i also got my plate in the mail today! WAHOOOO!

I STARTED TO GET ALMOST SADDENED THAT I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER BE GETTING IT BEFORE THE SNOW...AND I DID- AS SOON AS I CLOSED THE GARAGE DOOR IT STARTED! HANG IN THERE AND DONT CANCEL THAT ORDER. I ALMOST DID, AND IM SO GLAD I DIDNT, BECAUSE THIS CAR IS AMAZING. THE CAR IS WORTH ANY WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations Dylan. Welcome to the club!

Looks like they armorall'ed your top. When the snow stops, I recommend stocking up on protection, and I don't mean Zaino. :cool:

hey guys, Before bringing her in the garage, i made sure that nothing would fall. every hazard that you can see is being hung by a 1/4 inch lagged hook into the wall drilled about 3 inches deep. The ladder is a featherlite and those ramps actually should be thrown out. I dont even know why we have them. All the do is sit and collect dust. In my 18 years of existence, they havent moved once...and havent fallen once!

But it is good to hear that others care about my car!
Thanks guys/gals!
...now i need to go sit in it again :)

GREAT photos, dylan01, and that is a BEAUTIFUL Solstice! :grouphug: from all of us.

You deserve that car and it fits you well. You will be popular with the girls, dylan01, but it is NOT because of the car. It is because of you! You know what you want, you set a goal, you work towards it, and you achieve it. WELL DONE!

Now, when I come up to Ontario next summer, you and I can go cruising for chicks and honeys in our twin Sols. You get the chicks, I get the honeys (mature chicks). Deal?

BTW, you now have some great pictures for your monitor. Rip MARiSOL's photo off and replace it with Suzy's (or Mary's, or Ally's, whichever name you finally choose.) By the way, HAVE YOU CHOSEN? You gave us a list of three, but now you are limited to one. :)
