Hello All - I finally got my car!
« on: October 07, 2022, 09:44:06 AM »
I finally got my Solstice!  It's a 2009 Street Edition in Brazen Orange with a black stripe.  I thought during research I learned there were only 500 of this color made.  I love it.

That paint color, stripe, and wheels are a great combination.

Welcome to the forum! There's a lot of knowledge here, and enough camaraderie that those who sold their kappas years ago (like me) still hang around.

Very nice-looking car. I'm sure you know that only 138 Street Editions were built.  I wish you had shown pictures of the interior because I'd like to see that orange stitching. 50 were manual and 88 were automatics. Have many miles of smiles.

Also, the Street Edition had the blacked-out headlights shared also with GXP coupes.
