Lets see a picWell, bought my 2008 redline cheap, in January in a snow storm in Idaho, for $4750, but with a salvage title, due to theft & recover later. However, it cost $1800 to get it out of idaho in the dead if winter, and back to Kansas city. Then another $900 to fix the leaking water pump, replace hoses, belts, plugs, the usual (mostly labor cost, at a discounted $65 a hour). Fortunately, the Goodyear asymmetrical tires were almost new, so that saved some money, and it was a rust free car with 72K miles. Looks fantastic following my compound and wax job, runs fantastic too, though it did have a recall on the passenger seat airbag sensor (no charge)
Since it's race season, of course I have my 13 pieces of "FlairLets see a pic
let’s see a picMy sol is insured for $70k. I have more than that into it. You are not alone.
not bragging. Just saying what a fun car for just a little amount of cash. If wanted to brag I’d talk about my wife or my son. Or maybe even my C6I never got the impression that the OP was bragging about anything?! $13700 is not a huge amount of money for a car plus one-year maintenance!
I thank you. Your a sweet heart of a guyYou guys are why the Sky forum is small and dyeing. Its really sad.
You joined 18 minutes ago and your first and only post is to cyberbully a member who has been here for 16 years, has nearly 5,000 posts, and is a moderator on our sister site for the Solstice? The man has a point. If posts like these from you are what we can expect, RtE won't be the one leaving this community. This is not a good first impression for you if I'm not clear.It's spelled dying, and if you don't like the forum, check out....permanently.
That is about what I paid for my 07 base in 2014...nice to see them holding value like that. And that is a good price for an ECM replacement. Do you have a tech2 for the security handshake stuff?Okay I purchased my Sky in August of 2022 so far here is what I've have invested.
Purchase 2007 Sky Base Silver 5 Sp Man with the two tone Red and Black interior 49950 miles $11500
Had a bad ECM P0606 code replaced the ECM $125
Replaced Upstream and Downstream 02 Sensors (I work in a parts store) $45
Replaced Front and Rear Rotors drilled and slotted with Semi-Metallic Pads. $208
Air filter $15
Wheels and Tires. Original wheels and tires are in very good shape 75% thread left. $1805
Oil and filter were changed at time of purchase. Top in perfect condition. --------
So there you go should last me years as my DD. now has 54300 miles on it. Ready for an oil change.

Oh don't kid yourselves the solstice forum isn't much better. When ONE of the latest hot topics is 25 pages about a battery question and where the OP goes on about discussing getting naked with his date on a picnic, making love (fucking) and driving home nude, ........well what else is there to say? Not to mention that the average age over there is probably 130 years old! YIKES!RtE, This forum has always been slower than the Solstice forum. Half the production numbers and a less performance oriented image for younger, newer buyers has been the drive for that in addition to social media platforms replacing forums for community discussions among younger owners.
