im not a huge fan of 4 bangers, but omg. i saw a black pontiac solstice today while i was driving around. i was technically supposed to be in school, but who cares, thats not the point. this guy took a turn and got into it real hard and wham, the back of the car was sliding around the corner. had a pretty cool exhaust note for a 4 cylinder too.

that car looked sick.

I didn't know that little ecotec could cause the rear to slide out with meaty 18 inch tires....hmm

I much prefer the Saturn Sky!

Lemme know if anyone spots one of those.

I think the Pontiac and Saturn will both gain a strong following. They're both stylish little roadster cars, which tend to do well in the US. At least the Z3, Z4, Boxter, and Miata have had good success. As long as they are affordable I think you'll be seeing lots of these cars next summer.


ETA: now stop skipping school!! :D ;)

The best feature of the Solstice is its price. The Solstice turbo next year is actually going to be fast. Not just Miata fast, ACTUALLY fast.

yah , ive had a could bad weeks recently and thought about leaving, thing have been really rough ......they appologized for what all happend , it was justt he nature of the beast , basicly they know ill bust my ass for them and there takeing adavantage of having a guy like me around who isnt there for just a paycheck .....they said the worst thing that could happen for them is to loose me , i pretty much keep the serivce side of the dealer running smoothly , but my position right now isnt doing that ....it just worked out that way .....

side note , yup theres a raise involved

Good. You know what they say about talk. 'Atta boy's don't put gas in the tank or food in the gut. Appreciation is best demonstrated monetarily in the work force. :thumbsup:

Maybe, but you have to admit, it's a cute little car and looks like it might be fun on a warm sunny day. :)

It's the "Testosterone Curse", turns us guys into (unthinking bafoons?) sometimes. :halo:

That may be too harsh....

It causes brain dammage.

At least we have something to compete with the S2000 now. Although the LS2 is not a factory option, I don't remember the last time a 400hp SBC engine fit into a honda... :sneaky: If I had the money, I would palce an order for an LS2 Sky tomorrow, but alas...I am broke and can't afford anything right now. Oh well, I can dream can't I... :rolleyes:
