|Robotech||If your cat was clogged, you could see a reduction of power but usually you'll throw a CEL.|

First KAPPA's production, FOUND
I realize this topic is off subject for this tread, so I will start a new thread with the topic on the 'dates of the first Kappa production'.

What a link and what a spreadsheet!! Must represent a ton of work on each of your parts, you and Reed. I have seen those numbers before, but never with the monthly breakouts. That's now in my smartphone's email, forever in my pocket. Thx

reedred (on this forum) and I (on the Solstice forum), tracked production numbers each month after GM published the monthly numbers.
Reed put it together into a spreadsheet, by model year production by month, and published it here:
For what it is worth, I was tracking Solstices, Skys, Corvettes and XLRs. Reed was tracking Solstices, Skys and Opel GTs. Despite our tracking them slightly differently, in the end our numbers agreed, identically.

I also note you state each model year's production starts with 100001, etc. Somehow, I had thought that was not happening, so i stand corrected on that important point. Thx
Also, in reviewing your previous posts, I believe I understand production went something like this:
1) the first Solstice cars 6Y100001~6Y100700 were produced starting around approx March 2005.
2) then promotion cars 6Y000001~6Y001000 were produced and spoken for in a 41 minute sell out.
3) following were Solstice ~6Y100701 and up began again for an unknown number of units.
Yes, this topic can be confusing!

The March 2005 production was 6Y1000xx and you are comparing those numbers to the 7Y100xxx Sky numbers. Different model years are involved here.
The last 6 of the VIN are started over at 100001 with EACH MODEL YEAR. This is why you need to use the last 8 of the VIN.
The last 8 of any GM VIN are a unique identifier that will only reference a single GM car. The last 6 of the VIN are useless without the model year and plant identifier.
As a side note all 6Yxxxxxx cars are Solstice LE5s. There were no LNFs made until mid-model year 7Yxxxxxx. There were no Skys made with 6Yxxxxxx, as all Skys were 7Yxxxxxx and up.

1) VIN numbers missing in my previous searches (numbers listed above) do exist and all numbers are Solstice's with LE5 engines.
2) Of the first SKY's produced (actually I only searched the first 44), they were all produced in the 2nd and 3rd week of Dec 2005.
3) VIN's 100008-100011-100025-100039-100042 (again, Solstices) were all produced in a March 22 through April 12, 2005 time frame. I found the records for each of those numbers to be Solstice convertibles. Interesting those numbers were used 8-9 months earlier in Solstice production, while the majority of the numbers in the group were assigned to SKY production which was only planned to start some 8 months later (Dec 6 through Dec 16, 2005).
4) On the subject of the VIN numbers beginning with a '0' and producing the first 1,000 Solstices, the VIN search this morning of 000144, found it's production date is claimed to be 2005-08-03! And, I do NOT see a possible reading of the date as 03-08-2005. There is no mistake there, I believe.
5) DaveOC's Solstice manufacture date of 2005-08-26 for unit 000741 seems a lot of units were produced over that 3 weeks (from unit 000144 on 2005-08-03), but with the mystique around this subject it seems anything is possible.
Not knowing these cars would end up limited production, probably no one ever thought there would ever be a question come up about production sequence. And I'd agree, it would NOT have. But now we know, production ceased after 3-4 years. Maybe just further gibberish about VIN numbering and only of interest to a few of us, but I obviously have an interest.

There is another post this morning referencing a 'first 1000' Solstice for sale. I followed up on that sale listing and found an apparently really good Solstice which is #000144 of all Kappa's manufactured (I believe this is a fact).
At $8500 asking with 33,000 miles and photos looking pretty good, someone may find a nice car.
2006 pontiac solstice
The sales rep seemed very strong on their need to sell the car before winter, as they are located some 130 miles North of Madison, WI.
