I just got a call from my dealer, that VIN# 600 Aggressive is here and it is been unloaded from the carrier.
For the folks in Florida it took exactly 31 days to get to WPB.
The car will be at the dealer for a few weeks, there will be some Mods been done to it. I will post pictures of the before and after Mods.
The performance Mods will probably take a lot longer unless, ATI decides to take the car (Procharger Supercharger with either a 3 or 2 Intercooler), also if Stainless Works gets a car from another member, then the exhaust Mods will also get done quicker.
Once everything is done it should generate some where around 300 + RWHP from the 2.4 Ecotec.

The performance Mods as I mentioned will take a lot longer so yes, I will have the car first with NO performance Mods in it, but there will be some exterior Mods done that should not affect the driving of the car, I do not want to disclose at this time what they will be but I do believe a majority of members will like them.

AWESOME!!! :party:

Hurry up and get 1000 miles on that puppy so you can go get it dyno tested. :thumbs:

Sent you a PM, maybe we can convince ATI some how.

You wouldn't happen to know anyone who does specialy body panels do you, cause I've got some design ideas I'm trying to get made but I'm not really sure how to go about doing that on my own? The little mini quarter panels to be exact, you might like them.

Palm Beach county and sister county's, Broward, Dade, Martin and Saint Lucy, but I want to do the Mods ASAP, so there may not be a lot of driving at first, for starters the dealer will have (venom snake Solstice) for about 30 days, then if I am lucky I can get the performance mods done.

Did you buy from Schumacher? I got a call from my sales guy saying they just got in their first car. Sounds like it was you. I have no idea where I stand. Ordered from them on 6-11. Anyone there particularly helpful in keeping you updated on delivery? Thanks.

Good News Venom, Obviously many people (like me) can't wait to hear your progress. The performance stuff will be great but I get the impression that you have some surprises in store in the appearance category! Hints? ;) Good luck, standing by here. :)

Now if only the driver has another Agressive on the trailer with #637 to deliver in Sarasota! :cryin: My wife is planning to picket the dealer tomorrow carrying a sign that says "Dude, where's my car?"
The District Manager is bringing his Solstice and leaving it at the dealer until Monday.

Congratulations, LatinVenom. Sounds like you are going to have an AWESOME Solstice.

Mine is due in to Houston Wednesday, 10/12 (maybe) and I'm planning on driving to Florida in November. I'll cruise through Sarasota (to say hello to brian carpenter) on my way to Venice to see a client. Then on to Miami (maybe detour to WPB?) to check out Jai-Alai (love that game).

Congrats on the arrival of your Agressive! You've been waiting so patiently and graciously congratulating everyone else, so it's great to hear the news! :cheers:

Congratulations LatinVenom. Good to see another proponent of S/C.

Note to Brentil: any shop specializing in Corvette body repair or boats for that matter could muster up a skin off a wood buck in a flash. The 'vette guys will have a little more eye for flowing car design and can create just about any design idea you give them (we have one outfit up here that only works on 'vettes). If you want metal then best bet is a specialist in restoring antique cars, someone with an English wheel and familiarity with hand beating panels.

Well my friend we will see you on the road. I will be looking for that tricked out sol! We will be in sly 693. I am sure we will cross path's somewhere.

If you want to know about your car you need to contact Tim the sales manager, or ask your sales person to ask Tim to look it up.

Here is the first minor Mod made to the car, sorry for the picture but I was using my digital video camera, it has a feature to let you take pictures but it is not as good as a digital camera, any ways here they are, as the rest of the exterior mods are made I will be posting those pictures and this time I will use my digital camera.
Before someone ask where to get this 6" antenna, here is the link:

Cool for you LV.

That wall sized poster behind your antenea pic is sweet.

LV, how much $$$ do you predict you are going to put into your sol mods. Especially, could you detail the power mods and projected costs.

thanks, and have fun!

RODEO
