That's okay, the 2004 Grand Prix brochure has a picture of bare unibody with filler on right when on all built cars its on the left (mirror image to have car facing proper direction in brochure)Primus said:lol, the pesky left side!!! I forgot the solstice had a left side.
The advantage of it being on the right side is that you can pull up to a pump and tell your wife "honey, the filler is on your side, do you mind filling up the car?". :lol:PAS22 said:To each their own, but I don't understand why anyone would want the filler on the right side. Think about it, you pull up to the pump with the filler on the left (drivers side) you know exactly how far you are from the pump, you get out the driver's door and the pump and filler cap are right there. Its just automatic.
Everybody follow teh bouncing ball "You can trust your car to the man who wears the star...the big bright Texaco star." :lol: (showing my age, aren't I) How about the tiger tails we got to attach to the gas cap filler ("Put a tiger in your tank")dengel said:Wow, pumping your own gas? How inconvenient! You should all move to NJ where we have gas station attendants to do that kind of thing. :crazy:
I remember bugging my dad to get those orange plastic horseshoes to put on your bumper from the Gulf station.

This is the reason I prefer to have the filler in the back/right hand side. I mainly drive by myself or with my wife in the car so I always fill up the car. I hate having to fill up her car because it's on the left side. It's a lot easier and more convenient to just be able to pull up without having to worry about how close you are to the pump/concrete pylon.chenslee said:...however, you don't run the chance of banging your door on the cement pylons either.
Usually with cars that have the filler on the left, you can actually see it in the side mirror. Another advantage of the left side. I too have vehicles with different sides and find it annoying, but end up checking with the mirror all the time except in my daily driver, which has the filler on the correct left side.chenslee said:The two cars I have now have the filler doors on opposite sides. About half the time I pull up to the pump on the wrong side. Nothing says "I'm a friggn' moron" like having to get back in your car and turn around in the gas station parking lot. :brentil:
yes indeed it is on the left - as a matter of fact I filled up this morning!achieftain said:That's okay, the 2004 Grand Prix brochure has a picture of bare unibody with filler on right when on all built cars its on the left (mirror image to have car facing proper direction in brochure)
People are not permitted to sit in the Solstice at this time at auto shows. If someone has gotten to it's by other methods.jimfin1 said:alright, has anyone been to an autoshow where they can actually sit in the solstice?
is it roomy?
These are pre-production cars that are not 100% finished. Also to prevent people from damaging them. There's only like 3-5 of them around the country. Also one of the main reasons is to keep people out of the areas they're not supposed to be allowed. Under the hood, in the trunk, messing with the cup holders, etc.jimfin1 said:I am going to the auto show at the Javitz Center today I hope to see the car there, why arent people allowed to sit in it?
