Back in Mysterious
« on: January 27, 2021, 08:12:11 PM »
Hi all, it has been over 5 years since i sold my 2008 GXP to a gentleman in Montana. Mostly because I had a new born, I sold her (the car). Hasn't been a single day that I haven't thought of and missed that damn car.
With the current pandemic having made my local Los Angeles roads actually drive-able, i started getting "the urge".
I looked at and even test drove one of the last 2020 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth's as it is a good looking car, but man there was just no power there.
So... I started looking at Solstices online and wouldn't you know it, I found a Mysterious 2008 GXP in Montana with very low miles (less than mine when I sold it).
Missed the car, missed this forum and the fine folk here. Looking forward to getting the replacement here within a week. I guess I will resume the mod madness again.
Anyways, I hope you all have remained safe, healthy and sane in this weird new world we are in.

Thanks again all. So sorry I missed your sale LV!
That was one of the best looking Sols out there.


I have been prowling around for a couple weeks and it looks like the only real bummer is there are no more Coachworks vendors.


On the plus side recessed grills are now a thing!
