I'm curious ..... what are the last six digits of your VIN number?

Have you gotten the date when your car came off the assembly line?

Good luck if you really want to part with your SKY. :- ((

If it's an N/A I'd say you should be able to get about 14.

Hi, it's fair to say it's worth at least the Kelly Blue Book price. But I think it doesn't matter whether you have the 10th or the 91st Sky made. It's either the very first or the last that counts, or also, maybe if it's the only one of its kind. Who owns those cars? But good luck, hope you get the right buyer.

Stock is the starter setup.

Does anyone know when the first SKY Redline turbo's started coming out?

I've thought maybe the Redline was not among the early units, but on second thought, I think it would actually be a function of when the earlier Solstice started producing the turbo unit. When the Solstice got the turbo, it should be about the same timing for the SKY Redline. Does anyone have any ideas when the first turbo's in either car came out?

I wish Skybuy would let us know his VIN number ???? He might just be the winner between us.

Yes, great to know, then I would be one of those types that would be willing to pay much much extra on the first verifiable turbo or first Sky for personal satisfaction even if it is not practical as I already have a late production Sky. Probably someone is driving one of those special cars right now without even knowing it.

You were able to order a SKY at the auto show when they showed it as a concept car...of course, I didn't but on Jan 2, 2006 I ordered mine...received it April 28, 2006...with tax $28,654 and there was no haggle pricing back then. They gave u a price and that was it.

I'm in agreement. My N/A came off the assembly line on December 16, 2005 (I'm told by my dealer), and the pre-delivery inspection is recorded as January 19, 2006. A GM employee was the first owner/driver of the car under an employee program. I have recent email notes from that employee about his positive experience with that car. I'm hopeful my attempt to attach a photo of the VIN will be successful. My SKY is what I consider an early one, but really does little about value ....... just something to be proud of and maybe brag a little.
