Actually...

When I was promoting the car show I did for Relay For Life this year, I spotted a beautiful GXP coupe in the wild. I quickly pulled the car over and stuck a flyer inside their car. (It was at a park and the windows were down)

Not only did they participate in my show, they're now avid car show attendees in the area.

Here's a picture that's in the gallery from my show:

Wow... That red one in front there is gorgeous.

I think I remember reading that GM would only make roughly 1200 coupes. And that off the 1200, only 400 or so would be RPO Solsti. (As opposed to GXP)

There is NO WAY that this WONT be a collectors item.

Wonder if that roof would fit on a Sky and what it would look like?

It won't. I talked to the engineers and the contours of the two trunks are different enough that the Solstice roof won't graft onto the Sky. The said they "were working on something", but we all know how that turned out.

I did see one and sit in one at the NYIAS08 press days.

A Sky coupe w/ a greenhouse similar to the Corvette could have been interesting.

Those Stryker blue ones might be the rarest ones. One gorgeous vehicle that GM did not let have its prime time.

You guys all know I'm not into small cars, but I'd really like to have one of these.

Just beautiful.

Kinda funny that I haven't seen any here, stuff usually shows up pretty fast around here.

And, Wilmington isn't far.

I guess I should go scope out the dealers some Sunday.

Yup, definitely a future collector's item. Only 4800 2009 Solstices were built, so I can't imagine more than 2000 coupes were produced.

Purchasing a Solstice coupe and keeping the miles off it should make some investors big bucks in the future.

They cancelled the dark green color before coupe production started, didn't they?

I liked that color.

Local BPG dealer had a metallic red/automatic GXP... a true stunner from every angle.

SWEET car.
