OK I have to confess that I may have lead a local Pontiac dealer on just a little. I may have showed great interest so I could take a Solstice out for a test drive.:willy:
I'm a bad, bad person! But IT FELT SO GOOD!
I couldn't help myself and I think it's partly GM's fault for making me wait so long for my Sky.
It was a very cold day and the car had been sitting out side. I gave it a minute or so to warm up but that was it. I drove it for maybe ten minutes and the car never had time to fully warm up. I haven't driven standard in a year or so and I'm a little rusty. Having said that I thought the car was a little hard to downshift.
The interior was roomy enough (for a two seater roadster). I never turned the sterio on so I can't speak for the sound. I babied her and only put the peddle down near the end of the ride. She has plenty of get up and go...
Looking over the hood of the car from the steering wheel I felt KOOL
:lol:. I'm around 5'9" and I had lots of leg room. I had to move the seat a little forward to fully depress the clutch. This gave me room to put the seat back a little.
The engine was loud and the drive seemed a little hard but like I said I didn't drive her for long and she was cold.
I'd say it gave me as close to feeling what my Sky will feel like in the middle of winter as I can get without ever driving my Sky in the winter (which I'm never going to do").:lol:
