* The heating, ventilating, and air conditioning modules are from the Hummer H3

thats a smart way to share parts... much better that the costs are shared, but the consumer cant tell its the same (unlike a rebadge, where even those who know nothing about cars can tell certain cars share parts)

Guns don't kill people. Kappa kills People.

There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Kappa allows to live.

Kappa does not sleep. He waits.

The chief export of Kappa is Pain.

There is no chin under Kappa' Beard. There is only another fist.

Kappa has two speeds. Walk, and Kill.

The leading causes of death in the United States are: 1. Heart Disease 2. Kappa 3. Cancer

Kappa drives an ice cream truck covered in human skulls.

Kappa is my Homeboy.

Kappa doesn't go hunting.... KAPPA GOES KILLING

Cool. Good for GM save money where you can. :)

Makes me think of the Chevette parts (front suspension) used in the Fiero.

...although unlike the Fiero GM did this car right.

I can hardly wait for depreciation to kick in so I can buy a GXP Solstice for about 20k in pristine used condition. Right now they are still holding their value to well used.

I won't tell my son that next time he drives over here in his Sky RL. He'll be so thrilled to know another man kissed his new car.

I love the Kappas. Can't wait to buy a dirt cheap Solstice 5-speed with ~ 70K on it for a toy...
