Almost seems a shame to remove them, because the name Solstice is probably one of the coolest names for a car that I've ever heard.2KWK4U said:Should be pretty easy to do with dental floss and a heat gun.
My best advice for dealer emblems is to ask them not to affix one before you take delivery. I assume you will be ordering your Sol, so they should be able to comply before putting one on.Liam1694u said:They only thing i will remove is the dealership emblem.
Speaking of which does anyone know a good way to remove the various different types of dealership emblems (glued on, sticker, decal, painted)?

I'm dechroming mine as much as possible, but not because I'm ashamed of the name or anything, I just like the clean look, and have as far back as my 57 chevy. I may even shave the door handles.
But to each his own.

Bondo? :devil:brentil said:I really dislike the two Pontiac symbols on either side of the car on the front quarter panels. But that's mainly because I despise the fake air outlets they reside above. I'm working on something to deal with them though since I dislike them so much.
Hmm ... so completely different from my point of view. I never liked Pontiac or GM cars in general and never thought I'd actually own one, but the looks of this car alone made me want to give them a shot. Also, the name is one of the few things I was disappointed with in this car. "Solstice" just doesn't conjure up great "car" images in my mind. For instance, when you hear the name Viper, the snake comes to mind ... you think sleek or potent. And Mustang makes you think wild, powerful, and untamed. When I think "solstice" (without thinking of the car) it just doesn't bring an emotional response or any great "car" adjectives. Yes, I know the meaning of the solstice and the anthropological significance and read your thread on the subject, but I just don't see the connection to a car. Obviously, that's not a requirement for a car name, but I guess I always liked them better that way for something like a roadster. Don't take offense at that. I certainly respect your opinion ... but your post made me wonder how others feel about the name. (Again, set aside your feelings about the car and think strictly about the word "solstice" as a name for a car.)Crimson Avenger said:Almost seems a shame to remove them, because the name Solstice is probably one of the coolest names for a car that I've ever heard.
Tastes vary, but for me, I'll be proud of two things:
- It's named Solstice.
- It's a Pontiac.
Well, the summer solstice is the longest day of the year ---> makes me think of a long, hot, sunny day, with myself cruising along with the top down, wind blowing through my hair, shades on, tunes playin' on the stereo...SlySol said:... your post made me wonder how others feel about the name.
