I started this thread in the hopes that it would serve as the inception for anyone who finds a coupe or is interested in buying a coupe to be able to post it here or look here (naive I know) vs all the; Searching or I want a coupe threads. Many dealers now or have been using YouTube (along with other traditional resources) however, because YouTube is primarily a media that includes a video that allows potential buyers to view the car beforehand.
It also has a filter option (posted this week, this month, most viewed, etc.). Granted, it does also pull up convertibles, however since this is the coupe forum it was my hope that it would serve as one thread for potential coupe owners to begin or use as a search tool in their quest.
Again, the (my) primary intent for starting this thread was to help others in locating a coupe to purchase.
Came out of the grocery store the other day, guy pulls up and asks if I put the conversion KIT on or had it done. When I told him it was factory, of course he never heard or seen one until now. His next question was " Do you want to sell it?" I said no and suggested this forum.
I agree that is does look out of the ordinary for a Pontiac.
I get all sorts of questions on my oddball equipe - the most persistent was with the TVR race car I used to have - everyone asked what its was, I'd answer 'TVR' then they'd say "Who makes it?" and I'd say 'TVR' again - always felt like I was stuttering. Their next question was usually "Oh, you mean it is a Triumph......(followed by my 'No, TVR') and on and on.
I've had a few people say that they didn't know Pontiac had made anything that interesting. When I asked them if they knew about the Solstice convertible, they'd often say something about 'Sure, but it isn't anywhere near as nice as your car' (not making this up - many non-car people seem to like the coupes better)
It sure was weird to see my car posted on the first link of this topic, the end of my Vin is 9Y001141. I flew my Wife to Reno to buy it and she had no idea where we were going and why. I finally sprung it on her after the dealer picked us up at the airport and took us to their lot. She loves it! We drove it to Tahoe and then to Monterey. CA. We took the coast route to Orange County, CA. I think I got a pretty good deal, it has 14k miles on it and I got it for 19k out the door. Well I have to pay CA Tax and license on it.
