2006 Pontiac Solstice Roadster Coupe

So cheap, everyone should be calling this guy!!!



#Sarcasm

I feel it's time to sell my project and move on.....ready for a different platform to dump all my hard earned monies into.

Price is high for everything else out there available...but I feel it's justified and I'm in no hurry to sell.

So tell your friends....or if you want another Solstice sitting in your garage (sitting on the ground) hit me up :) :)

If you wanted that added to your car I could see the price total costing 26k, but mods dont add value really. Id say its a 13k car since its a high mileage base model. Imo.

All the work looks quality, but its built to your specs and we all have our own idea. GLWS though! Hope it all works out.

I know youre not in a hurry to sell, but keep in mind the price of these cars is going down. One with 1100mi recently sold for 17.5k and it was a redline. I paid 12.9k for my RL with 33k mi dec/12.

Would you buy a car from someone that was ignorant about what kind of car he had? What pray tell is a 'roadster coupe'?

I agree completely....mods do NOT add value....but the total overall project does.
I'll never click on an add for a stock Solstice..but if I saw something like what I posted, I'd click on it everytime. That means something to me.
Like the ad states, I'm in no hurry.
I sat on a completely re-built, custom, one-off VW Chopper Trike I built for a little over a year, without adjusting the price one bit. Got several calls and emails to take it down and I'll never sell it...until I found the one person that was in love with it....he bought it for my asking price.

This car isn't for everyone. I love it and don't want to leave the Solstice community....but I'm ready for a change......thanks for looking.

Depending on how long I have this car...I'll eventually purchase a removable hardtop...so it can be a convertible once again.....since I bought it back in 2006, the top has been down no more than 6 or 7 times....not much of a convertible guy

His car, his asking price. Bolt on mods are worth nothing in resale. But, car has a ton of custom work into it. He's not looking to sell it to everyone, just the right person. I wouldn't buy a Foose car ever. But, he's not doing too bad for himself last time I checked.

With all due respect to some of the posters : Cartmann32 has been a member of this forum since 2006 and his company has helped a lot of members with issues on their cars especially lighting I think a little respect is due after all we share the same interest in our cars whether they be stock,modded,or race prepared.I for one hope he gets every penny of his asking price there is a lot of time,effort,and money put into this car and as my West Coast friends would say "it's bitchin" !

^^Thanks bud....i wasn't going to say anything...but was kinda hoping since I've been on here forever that the negative comments would just not show up....either way, is what it is.

I do appreciate it though.....so thank you very much.

Agreed. Posting a comment on what YOU think someone's car is worth is a bit of a faux pas. I think a PM would be more appropriate. :thumbs:

I like the car. It's very tastefully done. Not an airbags fan, but I know a lot of people are, and it will get a lot of interest. Good luck with the sale! :grouphug:

@Cartmann32, does this mean you'll still be doing headlights and the like for the Solstice? I still want to have mine done, but life just keeps pushing stuff like that further and further down the list :(

Im not knocking on the car or the owner. Im just saying expect some low ball offers. Maybe the right fish will come along and bite, maybe it wont. But best of luck with the sale, I like the bags.

Of course....I'll never stop doing retrofits....I guess my 'specialty' will just move from the Solstice to whatever I do end up getting.
