Joined back in November 2005, before I even got my car, I was waiting on delivery. I got a black NA on December 23, 2005, drove it for a little over a year and got a 2007 Yellow GXP in March of 2007. Longest I have ever owned any car. It has almost bankrupted me adding goodies but I still drive it every day and I still love it. It's getting a new clutch for Christmas. Made a lot of friends here and even a few enemies, some gone to other cars many still around.

LOL

I must be a NOOB,
Came to the forums in summer of 07, bought and gifted the Sky (Green Dragon) to my wife for her birthday on 30 Oct, and bought my GXP in November (Punisher).

So its only been five years for me.

But I do have two Kappas, one of each flavor.:thumbs:

Hmm, maybe that means me? Not so sure tho, 'cos I bought mine new (albeit NOS) - but only 3 years ago. Lurking on the forum a bit before that, but only joined once I got my car.

I saw the forum when the Solstice first came out, but didn't hang around as the NA wasn't of interest to me.

Then they stepped it up and I joined in 2007 to hold a watching brief on what these cars were about, but still wasn't thrilled about the styling of the converts and would likely never have bought one.

Then I saw my first coupe - fell in lust and bought it new in Aug. 2009 and it has been downhill since then, so I guess I've been on 3 years as an owner and 2 years before that just sniffing around.

I've been on here since 06 and this is my second new Solstice (now old Solstice). Six Nationals! Does that mean I'm an old timer! Guess so

I joined in April of 07. I had bought a new 07 GXP. I went to the Nationals that year and fell in love with so many new Friends that are still my Friends today! In April of 09 I bought another new GXP so I would make sure I would have one for years to come! I guess I qualify. :)

I took my Car for a Test drive on Dec.16,2008 W/ .4 mileson it . I Put 197.6 miles on it and took it back on the 20th and bought it. I did some Lurking in here from around Oct,08 and Joined I think early Jan., 09 . I also joined KPF in Jan.09

(Oh one more thing) I 1st Saw these Cars on June18th at a job location.I ask the guy what it was (never Knew they made a Sports Car til then) I had sold my 47 Streetrod about 4 months before.When I told my Better 1/2 what my next Car would be , She said in these words ,I Quote " Honey you can't Own something you can't even prononuce " So from June till the 15th of DEC. I went to bed and would say the Name & then spell it I would say salsis.salstice,. On the 16th I told her I wanted to go But my new Car,she ask what I wanted and I said My SOLSTICE she said you know how to say it now . I said Yes & I'm gonna Get One to.

Been Spending $$$ ever since between My PT and Solstice And still working full time to Keep it Up. ( Would Not change anything ). This is what I had and have now.

Not so sure two years for me last month November..... I bought mine new the Solstice Coupe in Carrollton, Texas 3 years as an owner and 2 years off and on this forum. Now she has her home in deep south Texas. In the process of a daily driving and life’s other vicissitudes it sort of …well…still around. Unfortunately it has shown up, much like its owner, aged, in great shape and somewhat weathered by life’s encounters. I have many great memories in regard to this car. I often drive to South Padre Island and Laguna Madre Bay beautiful beaches, warm Gulf waters with breathtaking sunsets over the bay, night clubs and restaurants come alive with conversation, dining, music and dancing.

28 yrs old and I'm already an "OLD TIMER" on this forum. LoL. I bought my soltice with 5mi on it and I now have 120+K And I've loved every minute. She was the last one in the whole car lot and I had to fight an old women for her. Leaking water pump,clogged cat,ect. I still love "MY SYNN". And people from this forum have always been a major helpping hand, thanks for all you "OLD TIMERS"

If the forum has been around for 7 years, then it makes me wonder who has the oldest Solstice, and the one with the most millage? Have any members gotten 300K miles out of their great Solstice?

Member since December 2005 - 2006, 2007 & 2009 Solstice

Been a member since December 2005. Saw the concept Solstice in Orlando in 2002 and said if they ever make one I will buy it. I have now bought three, two new and one used (the Coupe) with about 3,000 miles on it.

Ordered my first one April 2005 it arrived December 2005, 2006 Liquid Silver Solstice. Sold it April 2006 ordered my 2007 Mean Yellow GXP Solstice in May 2006 and it arrived November 7, 2006. Have 53,000 miles on it and it's going strong. October 17, 2012 picked up my 2009 Brazen (Orange Metallic) Coupe in Ohio and drove it home to Tallahassee that day. It has a little over 4,000 on it.

I LOVE my Solstices!!! Will keep them until the wheels fall off and then put the wheels back on and keep trucken.
