In the mid-2000s, the automotive industry had retro fever. The Volkswagen New Beetle was introduced, the Ford Mustang took cues from the past and General Motors was flirting with more than a few nameplates from yesteryear. One of those potential nameplates was the Nomad.
Chevrolet showed off a Nomad concept in 2004 with the inception of the Kappa platform, but it never gained traction beyond its concept. However, the Kappa platform did go on to underpin the Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky and a reborn Opel GT in Europe.
The Solstice then received the attention of a company called EDAG, which showed a Solstice Nomad concept in 2006, complete with a roof similar to the Nomad concept from two years prior. Despite not making it to production, it seems the prototype roofs still fell into the hands of a few.
Specifically, one Craigslist seller currently has two Pontiac Solstice Nomads complete with the prototype roofs and is open to bids on one of the vehicles. The seller states most of the EDAG roofs were left abandoned in a warehouse, while some fell into hands similar to his.
The roof looks factory fresh as well. Fit and finish looks complete from what we can see in the photo and the roof is ready for a paint to complete the retrolicious look. With just a little TLC, the Solstice Nomad will certainly be a conversation piece.
