Initially, I like the Sky but as time went by, I started to warm up to the GXP. Now, I just love the organic look of the GXP. I did not test drive the sky but, I cannot believe it would be much different. In any case, this was a choice of the heart more than the head, so whatever minor difference wouldn't have mattered any way.

Regarding the G8, it's a real shame. I don't think it'll appear in an other GM form.

A chilly foggy California coast, a geat dinner at a Malibu restaurant, it felt like a great evening for a drive from Malibu to Santa Monica on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). Malibu hills on the left and Pacific Ocean on the right with the fog rolling in from the Pacific. What a night for a drive! It didn't disappoint. What an awesome drive it was.

B-E-A-Utiful (imitating Jim Carrey from 'Bruce Almighty')!
Wish you many happy miles on this one. You should name her Sideswipe. You know, from the Transformers series?

No, this was from the same trip we talked about, when we were there last, November 2012.

We'll definitely hook up next time we come by LA.

Yellow looks the best on a Solstice and you have captured this beauty perfectly in your camera shots.

The drive through Pacific Coast Highway on a convertible must have been awesome!
I so wish I was back in the West coast, owning a convertible and living up like you are doing right now.
