Guess they finally started selling more. Took a short drive around town and saw two others when usually I've been seeing none. My Gen1 was the only one on the road for about this long in the beginning too so I guess the sales are matching. It feels great never seeing your car type around. Guess it couldn't last but happy they're selling more.

Their loss I guess. You need a solaraguy.com sticker in your window. Then people might see your mod posts and buy up. By the way, any idea on when the top mesh mod will be ready and what changes you are making still since your latest pics?

Fortunately or unfortunaly, I'm seeing more 2004 Solaras on the road, too. All but one of them has been a hardtop.

I saw my first Solara convertible on the road the other day. Red with tan top. Somehow that tan top just didn't look good at all with that red. The car looks best with top down or hardtop matching red IMO. Not sure what other color top they could have used though to look good with red. Black?

Yes, black looks much better IMO, they have one here. The tan is okay. :)

Yep - its this saturday, July 17th - 11am at Jones beach field 4.

Pull into the lot, and head towards the back right of the lot I think - or just look for a bunch of idiots standing around a bunch of Toyotas.
