I'll tell you what

They wouldn't be sitting on my trunk unless they had chamois on their asses or looked like Barbara Eden and were nude.

Those were the Marshall Field's Santa Bears riding in the Sol's with the tops down. I wanted to check the VIN on the red one to see if they're using my car for parades instead of delivering it to me !! lol :lol: :lol:

They had two also, for the milford homecoming parade a while back same colors for the milford parade down town milford mi. The gm milford proving ground is about two miles from down town I bet these are pre production cars loaned by gm for these parades. During thanksgiving parade they really zoomed in the front ends of these cars they really looked awesome :cool: :cool: ;)

I Dream of Jeanie ... Nude. Now THAT evokes an interesting picture! ... but seriously, my Solstice will be in a local holiday parade this coming Saturday, ferrying the Grand Marshall. What would be best to place in between the humps for the Grand Marshall to sit comfortably AND safely on without maring the surface?

Only thing I could suggest is something very soft and cotton. Folded terry cloth towel is all that comes to mind. Maybe a small pillow on top of the towel to add cushion.

Just make sure towel doesn't have any dirt (falls on the ground) because that would become like sandpaper to the paint.

I think that the Grand Marshall should walk alongside your Sol. That way, he won't be in the way.....

I'll be in a parade this Saturday since I'm the mayor of small town I live in. The local Chevy and Ford dealers are providing 'vettes and 'stangs for parade participants to ride in/on. I told them I'll drive my Sol. I can drive with one hand and wave with the other. :)

Record the mileage for the possible "business use write-off" of your Solstice. :) Or is the city going to pay you for the mileage?

Check with our local Accountant for specifics. Gizmo where are you?

Without question, the Solstice is a great parade car. Can't wait to see some pictures.

Nice car indead! :thumbs:

Man, that speed had to suck in a stick. Did you even get into first gear?
Funny you should mention that! I did coast wherever I could, but mostly I never got OUT of first! Well worth it - the parade organizer said I have a standing invitation every year. The Grand Marshall told me later (kiddingly) that everyone was looking and commenting on the car, not her! I told her, hey, they look at the car, then they see you, so it's a win-win! :yesnod:

The best story is the local Chrysler salesman that came up to me before the parade started. He said this was the only way he could get a real, live look at one, since they weren't staying in the Pontiac dealer's showroom very long! And, of course, he was SHOCKED at the price, even loaded up. He said, "No wonder our Crossfires aren't moving! With looks like this, you don't need a V6!" So true, so true!
