Blurb taken from Chicago Tribune (they make you register to see so I just copied the text that pertains to Solstice)...ready Hollywood for the Solstice :jester
Solstice with soul: The two-seat Pontiac Solstice roadster concept generated lots of oohs and aahs on the auto-show circuit a year ago, so many that it will go on sale in the third quarter of next year as an '06 model.
But have celebrities been pounding on Pontiac's door to reserve a copy?
"I've gotten a lot of e-mails and voice mails because people don't expect something like Solstice as a $20,000 car from Pontiac," said Jim Bunnell, Pontiac/GMC general manager.
But "celebrities aren't up on the car as yet" because it's not on the streets.
Automakers love when celebrities go ga-ga over a car because it generates lots of excitement among youth, the folks Solstice is aimed at.
Bunnell also is a realist when it comes to the publicity that celebrity door-pounding generates.
"If Paris Hilton wants a Solstice, I'm sure we can find one for her," he said.
