A few weeks ago, I called 26 dealerships in MD to find a Sol. Same story everywhere, "We expect one any day now." So I left my name and number with the dealers who left a positive impression on me. Yesterday while starting a movie a I got a call from one of the dealerships. He told me TWO had just come in and they were still on the truck, Aggressive and Sly. The cars would be prepped for delivery in 90 minutes--first come first served. He still had 100 people on his call list. There was no way I was gonna wait 90 minuntes so as soon as I hung up the phone I was on my way.

Fifteen minutes later I arrive at the dealership to find the entire staff gawking at a Sly. The Aggressive was at the back of the trailer and couldn't be driven because the driver lost the keys to it! Unreal! :willy: They wanted 3K over sticker but I told them them that was too much. So they come down a G and I took the bait. A man's gotta have limits, right? It didn't bother me, the car was there, I was one of the first they called, it was optioned just the way I wanted it, I didn't want to wait, and the price was exactly the same as one I put a deposit on but may not have gotten until next year.

So even before the keys came, I told them I'd take it. We did up the paperwork and now I'm chillin in my new Aggressive Solstice I've named Candy!

Of course people showed up later looking to buy the car I now own. You snooze you loose!

Also, Swendor, you might want to create your Signature. At the top of any page of posts, select User CP, then on the left select Edit Signature. Add in whatever you think is appropriate, such as VIN if any, color and options, etc.

We like to see the VIN in your signature, it helps us to associate who you are. Well, it helps ME to associate who you are! I'm a number cruncher (tax accountant)! Thanks.

Tell them to look in the trunk. No, never mind, not enough room back there for BOTH keys!

Welcome back, SoulMan1. We haven't seen you around for over a month. You must have about 10,000 miles on your Solstice by now, because I'm sure you've been on the road all this time unable to post! Tell us about your ride in another thread (no hijacking allowed! :) )

SolsticeEnjoying-Upper Marlboro

Had the top down today and enjoyed the beautiful weather. It's supposed to be a pretty good weekend, too. Couldn't have picked a better time to pick one of these bad boys up! I got to work today and everybody wanted to see the car. I must've given at least six rides.

That's ok, though. Gotta get past those first 500 then I'll really wring it out.

Vin

Well there are 6 numbers after the last letter in my VIN. Is that the number off the line? If so, it's 101077. If that's the case they seem to have picked up some serious speed at the plant.

Congrats!

You did it right. I ordered in August. Called the dealer for an update yesterday and was told I'll be lucky if I get it by Spring. :brentil:

What are talking about ? 1077 was made right after the first 1000. Mine is 101178 and built 9/12, it made it out but I don't know how, had it for a month now. Looks like all you New England guy's should have your cars very shortly. By the way it looks it seems like they are fixing the older vins first.
