Well.... This is my first post, because I jsut recently fell in love with the solstice. So i started looking, and my search ended in jacksonville.

Apparently the dealer i went to is the number one dealer in the south, and they just got more allocations. I put down my down payment today and the dealer says i'm looking at late november early december.

yay!

we'll see how accurate it is in a few weeks :0)

You will not see your car in 2005, He or she ment 2006. Ive had mine
ordered for 6 months, Car was just built, And don't think I will see it till the end of Oct, so good luck if you think you will be getting it this year.

It is possible that he could get it by the end of 2005. If the dealer had 6 allocations and the dealer got another 4 that means he is towards the middle of the 1st 4 months, so end of the year early 2006 is possible

Must be dori-san's dealer, so he might know the time schedule.

I know of an AL dealer who says he has 2 coming in on the train. Question is how much are they asking for the Sol ... MSRP? :confused:

It is dori-san's.... and they are asking msrp!! I was extremely impressed by this dealership.

If I heard the guy correctly, They had 18 allocations and they already sold 11 of them with one cancelation.

:thumbs:
I live about 1 1/2 hr from there, so maybe I should email your dealer. :confused: I am currently deployed, but I am starting over in the buying process. My wife likes the Sol more and I have kinda grown attached to the Sky ... maybe I should just get both. ;)

Check my sig... I'm 3rd of 11, and yes. I was informed just recently although it hadn't made sence until seeing this thread. They HAD 11, possibly due to their recent relocation and GRAND REOPENING (and not to mention they are as you said, one of the top dealers of the south), they were given 7 extra cars for their allotment. Although when I spoke with my salesman on Thursday he mentioned that they now only have 3 or 4 left out of that 18.

They are now down to 0 out of 18 - I am 1 on the waiting list - bummer - they are trying to get another in their initial allocation but I am not holding my breath.

The event(chamber of commerce) that dori-sans took the photos - really pushed the sales here in jax.

Same thing happened to some dealerships in Vegas -- they were given a couple more allocations for this year......

This seems to reinforce the notion that Northern allocations are being redeployed south of the Mason-Dickson line in anticipation of cancelled orders in the snow belt. :(

The South Shall Rise Again. :cool:

Hey Dorisan. Is your dealer Nimnicht? I'm 6 of 14 1st 4mo at Nimnicht. Your photos were great. I couln't make the grand opening so I was glad to see the photos. I did see a black one here in Gville the next day. PS where does the 3 of 11 come from? :leaving: Thats why I'm asking about Nimnicht.

It's because they only had an allocation of 11 when I ordered...

Here, I'll change my sig... even though I don't know my VIN yet I can wager a really close guess!

As close as I was, I was just barely off...

I put VIN #1016XX in my sig because I had a feeling I was gonna be between 1600-1650.

Talked to my dealership again today and after a good bit of digging he called me back:

1599!

oh, so close! dang. lol :party: whee! I got my VIN!

No need to speculate on when other people will get their cars...

No one has any idea when they are getting their own cars, let alone when someone else is getting theirs. It is going to be a different timetable for everyone. It depends on a lot of factors, not just how long someone before you had to wait. If you have been waiting 4 months, did you think you would have your 2006 car before September of the year before?

My dealer has one -the buyer backed out... it should be on it's way soon. They have a sly and a mysterious. New car mgr. said they can put an order in for two other cars, as people cancel-orders move up the list. There is at least one up for graps, just like VIN 001... maybe another.
