We just picked it up for her, its an 07 with <10k on her. The guy who had it was an older gentleman and had the GMPP sensor/tune upgrade done to it. It should be sitting at 290 hp and 330 torque (crank of course). Overall a nice little convertible that she had wanted for a while. It will scoot right along and I enjoy driving it with the top down although its a bit tight with it up. (6'3")

Here is the dealer pic. I need to hit it with the orbital and get some of the clear scratches out but other than that it is in perfect shape.

My winnings of the day were not as fortunate! We were coming up 75 from Valdosta at 90 mph when my V1 told me I was being shot with lidar. I immediately looked up to see him on the overpass. It is at that point you either downshift and hit the next exit or slow down and get ready for your boning. Because he had a high vantage point and could see me for a mile or so so I choose the latter option.

He comes up to the window and the first words out of his mouth were "This thing sounds good what do you have in it"? I let him know and we go on to talk about his buddies new Z06 and yadda yadda. At this point he asks for my license in an obligatory sort of tone and I am thinking sweet he will make sure I'm licensed and I'll be on my way. Nope. After a few minutes he comes back and hands me my 90 in a 70.

Moral of the story is...Well there is no moral you have to pay to play! :lildevil:

Nice solstice, sux on the ticket. I just got hit for 77 in a 55 on Friday but the cop dropped it down to 75 in a 55. Thankfully, I wasn't in the V because I would have been going MUCH faster.

Thank you she really likes it, although the 5 speed is proving to be a bit of an annoyance for her. (just a noob with manual transmission).

Sorry to here that its the 55 zones that get ya. If its 55 tops or 70 tops (highway type road) I usually always go 85-90. So ya either way you are slightly speeding or excessively speeding! :histeric:

I'm surprised that he gave you a speeding ticket. He should have ticketed you for driving a Solstice without wearing a skirt.:)

Did the Georgia super speeder law go into effect yet?

Just be thankful you're not up in Canada. 90 can get your car impounded and your license suspended for a week. That's before the 4 figure fine.

Be thankful you're not in western Australia where they can confiscate & sell your car for speeding at 27mph or over the limit. This, by the way, is via speed camera. $160k Benz? Bye, bye...

I have read about this before. Fines where they are relative to your income. That is retawded, coupled with higher priced vehicles no thank you Australia...

isn't that only in Ontario? Quebec is not that draconian.
