I heard you got offered $100k for your car, is there any truth to that?

Hi Clark,

I'm terribly sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it appears there was a mistake and our orders got mixed up. You were supposed to get my car and I was supposed to get yours. Bob feels really bad about the confusion, but let me know when we can meet up to swap out our cars and we'll take care of everything. :lol:

Hahaha! Kidding, of course. Congrats on the car! I know it will probably be a tough decision of whether you keep it or sell it for some crazy price, assuming the rumored values are true ... but let us know what you end up doing. I know I'm very curious to see what kind of offers you get on the car and what you end up selling it for if you go that route.

P.S. A lot of people tend to be critical of those selling their car for a profit on this forum, but I don't think anybody here would fault you if we're talking about a six-figure sale price. I know I would be greatly honored if I got VIN #1, but that would be just way too much money for me to resist cashing in on.

By the way, give us a rundown of how insurance will work for the car if you get a chance. Obviously, it's worth much more than just any Solstice as a collector's item. My dad had to have special "collector's car insurance" for a couple of his cars ... I assume you'll have something like that also? If so, I'm sure we'd all love to hear what your appraisal comes back with (if you don't mind sharing that info).

Hi there Clark!
Welcome to the forum. Congrats on your good fortune and the purchase of a wonderful car. How soon before you actually take delivery?

Congrats, that's awesome. Well, I'm guessing you've gotten plenty of offers but what the heck, let the bidding begin. I don't suppose $60k would be of interest to you?

I'm very curious about your plans, are you going to drive it, sell it, or keep it as a collector?

Let us know when it arrives and what kind of offer you get. Congrats!

Welcome!

I'm glad you decided to join Solstice Forum. This is really a great group of folks, and there is a heartfelt sense of camaraderie that I have not seen on other forums.

WOW! That's so cool! Congratulations seems rather inadequate. That's just amazing and wonderful. Normally, my posts are a bit long winded, but all I can think to say right now is, "Wow! Congratulations :cool:"

I definitely look forward to your posts and tales of your adventures in this "got to have it" cool design American roadster.

Be well, and again, welcome.

You have to tell us how the whole situation unfolded with you getting number 1. Did the dealership contact you first or did Pontiac HQ call first. Tell us the story so we can write it into the journals of Solstice history!
