Hubby facing milestone BD. Last kid graduating college in June. Jack always talked about getting a roadster, probably old MG or somesuch. I liked the roadster idea but had trouble with visions of breakdowns, rebuilds taking months/years and scarcity of parts. We talked a bit about options but didn't care enough for anything to take the plunge. Then I saw a photo of a Solstice, probably in Popular Mechanics, last summer. Suddenly I thought here's a roadster we won't break the bank on and it should run quite a while without major parts problems. I thought about it for a few weeks and then floated the idea of that for his April BD. Sold! We went to the local autoshow in Nov to look at the Solstice but saw the Sky and immediately agreed it was "our" car. Put deposit down the next day. We've got a few weeks to go but putting the time to good use cleaning out the garage.
PS - we haven't told the kids yet, keeping it a secret from all 4 of them, all twentysomethings. Decided to spring it on them once it arrives. Very challenging when they come by or call and ask "What's new" to not blurt it out. Is anyone else planning to do an unveiling, too?
