[This thread is under construction]

I thought I'd put a thread together with info about all the various Kappa based cars we've seen with some images and specs. Along with a little poll, who is your favorite so far?

Solstice Roadster. This poll would only let me choose one, but I would have also picked the Nomad if could. Love that concept too, but since the Nomad doesn't seem to be a real car any time soon, I'm sticken with the Solstice. :cheers

I love the Nomad, but if I get rid of my current pleasure vehicle it will be for a roadster. I'd get a Nomad for the wife / winter vehicle if it had 4 doors and didn't ruin the looks.
