Because I didn't want a vette..LOL I am a big fan of roadsters. I grew up with MGB's. I wanted a fast roadster and no one made one, so I built one myself. I have way too much money in it, but you only live once.
Why would you FULLY customize your solstice to the point where it had all the interior/exterior work done and the vette engine in it when you could just as easily bought a vette for the same price or cheaper?
