This may take the cake for the geeky-est story on this forum (and I have pictures to prove it). :crazy:

About an hour ago, my wife calls and claims she is following a red solstice south on I-75 (near the Mustang plant). Naturally, I grab the video camera and jump in my truck. I wait impatiently on the south-bound on-ramp until... :willy: ... I see it. I peel-out and chase him down. Unfortunately, I didn't have anyone else to work the camera - so the pictures could be better. Oh man, is that car beautiful!

For anyone who is interested, given the present course and speed - I would estimate he will cross into Ohio at about 4:00pm. :)

Can you use that Putfile.com thing? I think it takes pictures or video files (MPG, etc.).

http://www.putfile.com/

This forum has no place for video files.

(cue the squelch noise) Copy that driver, all Ohio units head toward 280 and 75, set up a Solstice block on the highway, and stand by with cameras in hand. Red Dog Leader standing by...

Its probably one of the test units I got pics of on Wed in eastern Ohio headed to Michigan on a car hauler.

They are just stills (I didn't have a camera handy). There also not very good (one from behind, two through the side mirror, all low res.) - more funny than anything else. :lol:

Damn those moderators, they're a bunch of ... Oh, hang on... they can see this, right?
Nah, they cannot read anything deragatory typed about them. It is a secret software forum filter that I activated weeks ago!! So feel free to comment away!!

Red Solstice heading South on I-75
Living about 100 miles north of the southern end of I-75 this sort of caption seems designed to torment me :banghead: please, show a little mercy, huh? :nopity:

Ban? :devil:

:lol: J/K of course! :jester:


MAKsys, you are just the dedicated enthusiast we have been looking for! You don't even know how many people post sightings, but then do not have a camera on hand to record the event.

Right now regular members don't have attachment posting privilages so a free hosting site such as putfile (see Mceb's post) is your best bet.

Have any of us thought of the "Solsticearazi" effect...we all want our SOls. NOW, But what if you were to get the first one??!! Being chased down by fellow SOLMATES IN WAITING, pulling alongside you on the freeway...wanting pics, yelling and asking a variety of questions as you are cruising along. Could get kinda crazy... :willy:

Awesome pics Maksys. Just an FYI, if you put the image tags around the exact picture file address once you upload them, they will show in the thread. I'll go ahead and do it for these three.







Again, all three images curteousy of Maksys!

I think that looks like a reversed view, cause it's a pic from a mirror, right? Therefore, sunglasses are preferred for top-down motoring, and the gentlemen (facial hair?) looks comfortable and of a large frame; therefore my 6'3" 36 in inseam frame may actually fit in my car. :lol:

And this photo may illustrate the best method for carrying large objects (my guess it's a golf bag carrier, or luggage of some sort) with the top down in the trunk.

Also, Ohioians do tend to run large. And never antagonize green blobs
cause they wont give you a ride in their Solstice. :lol:

It sits on the left side in the mirror picture right? Does that tell you something about where it sits in the car?

I don't say more ;) !
