Hey everyone, I am new to the forum and just got the ability to post. My first post might seem dumb to some of you but I was wondering where the term "Sly" came from? I've seen it numerous times and I want to keep up on the Solstice lingo!

Thanks
Len

Quick question for you about your Sol, if you dont mind, howmuch did you end up paying for your new ride w/ it pretty much loaded?

If you want to configure a car for yourself, and see what it would cost MSRP, which is what most everyone is paying (or more), go to cars.com

SLY is the Grey.
COOL is the Silver.
See, I don't get this, why sly - cool and the rest. You have to be part of the club to get those terms, nobody outside of the car/solstice world will use those.

Doesn't Titanium Grey or Velocity Red or Avacado Green make more sense?

Avacado green, I made that one up, I wonder if it actually exits though :lol:

I don't think of a car as Avacado Green -- It makes me think of dirty diapers :lol:

Avacado green? Yuck! I agree with your premise, though. It would make more sense.

Glad to hear! Cause I've been here a while, and I have no clue. I will learn them (the color names) when the car hits the lots, that's if the car sells me once I see it and drive it.

But since we're at it, someone want to post those color names and their corresponding colors?

Our first house had avacado green bath fixtures. Didn't Vega's come in that color?

Anyway if you check the colors for the VIBE, they have names like this, so I think somewhere in marketing someone thought catchy names would be Cool, so they were Aggressive in developing the Pure concept. A Mysterious thing happened, as Sly as they were they got in so Deep that the other guys were Envious.

RODEO, I am ashamed.
Hey, I'm not the one with an avatar showing himself sitting in an avacado green solstice :lol:

Sorry, which color code is green again, I know it's not sly, or mysterious, or pure, hhhmmmmm....I just looked at the list a minute ago and I can't remember. Get my point?

Those that have been ordering the cars know this because they've been studying the ordering details. Myself, I'm reading mostly about performance issues. I've never looked at the options and pricing stuff everyone has put together. One day, when I'm ready to buy, I'll tell the guy/girl "I'll take the red one"!!!

In one of the videos of the Sol whether on the Pontiac site or on the CD there was a rotational morphing of colors with the trick names and it was, well Cool.
