I don’t know what it is about Kappa-based GM vehicles like the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky that makes me adore them. Perhaps its their roadster layout or maybe it’s the fact that these cars are simply a blast to drive. However, every time I see one on the road, I can’t stop looking.
And that’s exactly what happened to me the other day when I happened upon a bright red Solstice in a parking lot. The car caught my eye and the black rims instantly put me over the edge. I whipped out my camera and snapped a few shots of the Solstice for safe-keeping. Needless to say, I was that weirdo with the camera taking pictures of random cars in the parking lot while my fiancé was impatiently tapping her foot next to the supermarket.
What I find intriguing is the fact that – to me – it doesn’t matter that this particular Solstice has slight body damage or needs a thorough wash. Its looks are to die for and those black rims and red body are a perfect combination that almost made be drool all over my Canon DSLR. Boy do I wish I was the lucky owner of a Kappa car… but more than anything, I wish these cool vehicles make a comeback within GM’s portfolio sooner rather than later.
