Solstice owners and enthusiasts!
With the current economic crisis facing General Motors, combined with the impending increases in CAFÉ fuel economy standards, recent press reports, and what information has filtered out of GM, we believe that there is a real cause for concern regarding the immediate future, and long term future of the Sky, Solstice, Opel GT, and kappa platform in general.
In light of this, we would like to introduce to you a new website…
Save the Kappa!
Fformula88, Mceb, and myself have put together this website in the hopes of spurring on a grass roots effort to inform General Motors that the large and enthusiastic community of kappa owners do appreciate their efforts for bringing this car to market, and continue to yearn for updates, improvements, and future products.
I urge everyone to visit the site, review it’s contents, and take some sort of action. We have included some basic information about the current state of the platform, as well as some tips and hints as to what you can do.
If you so chose to participate, we would also like to stress the importance of sending a letter, or multiple letters to General Motors and the decision makers inside that corporation. Sending a snail mail letter, possible with a picture of yourself and your pride and joy kappa, is far more personal than an email, or an online petition. It tells the reader that the writer has enough passion and drive in their cause to have sat down, wrote out the letter, purchased a stamp, and physically mailed it. An email or online petition may try to convey the same information, but the ease and quickness of using electronic forms such as this just don’t carry the same weight as a good old fashioned snail mail letter. We have also provided names and address of some people at GM (on the site) who we would recommend writing. It certainly wouldn’t hurt to send a separate copy to each one.
If you value the kappa and would like to see it continue to be offered and improved upon by GM, then the time to be heard is now!
Thank you for your time and support in this matter!
Long Live the Kappa!
