New Double Owner
« on: October 06, 2020, 08:37:24 PM »
Hello one and all!

Thanks for letting me join the community.  A little about why I'm here:
I've actually owned 3 Solstices (Solsti?) over the last 4 years. The first was a 2006 NA 5spd. It developed a bad tick that wasn't the timing chain guides. So I swapped it for a 2008 NA Auto. (My old man had 15 of these cars in various states of repair. Used car dealer. lol) It is a salvage title rebuild that needs a lot of love.

This year, the Auto started having shift issues, downshifting at highway speeds into 3rd. But, my wife loved the car, so I found a gray 5spd 2008 with a lot less miles (90ish). She's driving this car daily, now. I was planning on selling the Auto, but I've decided to make it my daily driver.  And thus the projects begin!
