My step dad has one, little room, but fun little cars. His has some mods to it too, like intake, exhast, and custom computer programming. But not bad at all for a rental.

No Sky.. but they do rent Hummers (H3 I think).. at least that's what the TV ad showed..

It's not fun on the rocks ... I hit a small pile in the road while taking a corner and it was not happy..

you know, it's funny.. I wonder if a certain section of our population will end up having more accidents once every car sold comes with stability control. As I drove the car and got more used to it, I found myself driving with less and less of a safety factor - mainly becuase I knew the car would step in if I over did it (which I did 2 or 3 times)....

the stability control was really nice.. but it became a game - how hard could I drive without kicking it in..

hey, if its a one car accident let it happen :P I wound up with my truck laying on its side in a creek and my passenger begging me not to unbuckle in fear of being crushed, its fun to push the limits on anything, your jeep you do it slower, that kid doing the wheelie on his crotch rocket down the expressway. stuff like that is why they make stability control, kinda disappointing my ABS didn't work because it could have saved my ass.

looks like a fun ride though.

I rode in one once. I couldn't see over the door 'cause I'm too short.
Did it have adjustable seats?

IIRC that is why Ryebread doesn't have a sky or solstice and has his miata.

One of the latest HPP mag's have the solstice with the LSX and a supercharger IIRC, around 700 or so HP and could hook up running 70 down I-96 when they were testing it.
