Anyone interested in starting one? Maybe a fall get together if we get one by then! :lol: Or maybe just to show off your Sol to the rest of us who might not have one yet!
Depending on how many people had car by the end of September, I was gunna suggest meeting at Mid Ohio the weekend of the SCCA Runoffs (Sept 19-25).ateam_77 said:I think a celebration drive this fall would be good.
I think a cruise and the Scca runoff are both great ideas. The Sept. date would be good because hopefully a few of us will have vehicles and can show them off. I also think a fall cruise in October would be good too. Weather pending of course. Columbus would be a good central location for all I think!Solstick said:Word on the street is that there are 18 EOP cars in Columbus alone. Anyone know about how many cars may show up anywhere else?
How would people feel about meeting somewhere for a cruise. Conejo148 has offered to set something up in NW Ohio in the past. The Buckeye seems to have a lot of strong interest and representation.
Can we have our first meeting in Palm Springs?CoolOne2006 said:Anyone interested in starting one? Maybe a fall get together if we get one by then! :lol: Or maybe just to show off your Sol to the rest of us who might not have one yet!
SolGeezer said:I'm in NE Ohio (Hudson (between Akron and Cleveland). I'd be very interested in getting together with other owners and organizing drives and sharing back country routes (hilly and winding roads). I am second on my dealers first allocation (order date 4/16) and it looks like my first drive if I'm lucky will be sometime in late September or early October, a great time to enjoy the beautiful
autumn foliage in the Buckeye state.
We are fairly close. I actually live in the Perry area.SolGeezer said:CoolOne2006,
You and I are probably only about 30-45 minutes apart in drive time depending where you live in the Canton area. Where are you in the wait list? I was told when I ordered mine as part of the apprentice EOP program that it would most likely be sometime in mid to late September but realize that it could be anytime between then and the dead of winter depending on how production goes. I ordered a red (aggressive) Solstice with ebony leather and all options except the smoking package. I later dropped Onstar based on the advice of my dealer in order to get the order picked up sooner.
This will be our fourth car. My son is taking Drivers Ed and will be getting my old car (1997 Toyota Avalon) when he gets his license. Other cars are my wife's 2001 Toyota Sienna and the newest addition last year a silver 2005 Chevy Silverado diesel 2500 HD 4x4 (great for plowing through the feet of snow we get up here). My Solsitice will strictly be for pleasure driving during the six or seven months of good weather we have up here.
Keep me informed of anything you hear from your dealer regarding your Solstice order and I'll do the same. I'd be glad to show off my Solstice to anyone on these boards when it arrives.
Any other N.E. Ohio future Solstice owners out there?
I would think anyone who can get to where a meeting was held would be a welcomed brethern. I would hope anyone who could make the drive would come from whereever they can and park their butt next to the barbeque with a cold beverage of their choice.Ex-Miata Man said:Hey guys, don't forget those of us in western Pennsylvania! A couple of month ago we were told we would be adopted when the time comes, don't let us down now. Mid Ohio isn't too far when it's just another excuse to park my butt in the soft leather seat of my Solstice. :lol:
I've mentioned this at least twice. I'm waiting until it gets closer before I make plans, but I'll be there. If we have some cars, we could pick a common parking lot to meet and see how many Sols we could pack in.package said:
That's too bad...ateam_77 said:The guy in a very rude way told me that his boss didn't like us *******s that come up here and keep his regulars from getting in and I could not leave my car for 5 minutes.
