I almost like the concept of this, but I agree with Joey...not my thing.  A little too abstract for my tastes.

However, I do like what they've done with the console and doors.  The diagonal stitching looks like it's well done and I kinda like it.  Maybe if the seat covers weren't so abstract, I'd like this better.

I am happy to say that my taste for what I consider Artistic still differs from the artist.

Cool!  Sorta reminds me of the attention to detail taken in a Solstice by a former kappa owner who works for Solo and now owns a Challenger.  Wonder if he'll grace us with his presence at MM10.  I'd like to see if he topped the Solstice effort - doubtful.

It was on the BB.  Whole bunch of folks getting hot and bothered about 'how could he say such things', 'doesn't know what he's talking about', etc.

what a crap load of money to spend on a car that is all show and no go...  It's an NA and still has the stock radio, steering wheel didn't even have the radio controls.  It's an interesting job but all that money was spent to go slow.....  :barf:

It's weird, I like the style of the seats but the black inserts make it look like a red alien. Then adding the other red pieces that just looks like they didn't have enough to make it uniformed on both sides.

Is that rear compartment sticking his tongue out at me?

If I was to intertain the thought of purchase I would first have to look into how firm the seats are, what support they give and how they support the lower back!  First, they are very modern looking but they look soft and plushy!  Sometimes looks can be deceiving.  The seats in our early build 2007 Pontiac Solstice GXP are firm and today they are as supportive as when taking delivery way back and with a VIN of 1G2MG35X97Y120075 Miss Red Eagle was a very early build indeed.  The support today in the seats is as good as when taking delivery. 

These seats have a very modern flair to them and would appeal to many potential customers.  I can see them on a Carnival Cruise Ship!  Thanks for the thread speedsports66!  :2c:  :brnout:
