Looking at the shipping label from Mayhem lower right hand corner is the designation 1AZ1029421 According to Kappaman if I understand him correctly, the last five digits are the amount of Kappas built so far this year, so that means mine is the 29421 built in 2007. Is that correct Kappaman?

BTW, I saved the Shipping Label, they even laminated it for me:lol:

Looks like the 29 thousand number may be inception to date, or the 29,421th Kappa ever built, rather than just in 2006.
Production numbers released announced nearly 20,000 Kappas built in calender year 2006 by the end of Aug.
By Aug 31, more than 31,000 Skys and Sols had been built.

Where do you find the shipping label? I asked my salesman to hold on to mine but he wasn't sure where it's located. He'll be laminating my sales receipt I might as well have him laminate this also if he would be so kind.

Where are these cars? It would be interesting to know the #'s sold in geographical areas. I live in the Tampa area and I've seen a couple of Sol's and maybe 2 Sky's. Is there a " Big Sky " area?

WHAT????? :confused: If this is correct, where are these cars?:confused: Also AGAIN this week in my Sunday paper is once again advertising the very same red SKY (still) at my dealership and (still) for sale at $29,500.00 ......and this car has been there since late June!!!!! Go figure.

I guess that SE Mass is NOT a big convertable Roadster market...I would assume this car (it is loaded! and damn sharp I might add...just not my color) woiuld be gone in SoCal.

The answere is it sould be the total kappas from inception 2006 and 2007. They built AROUND 21125 Solstice in 2006. Your vin is 108087 thats the vins for all 2007 kappa build Solstice,Sky,. Now add AROUND 21125 plus 8087 together you come up with 29,212 Total kappas built that would be 2006 and 2007. My Solstice figure is an est. It could of been 21,450 but i would have to look it up.

The 2007 Kappa build is in your vin. You were the 8,087 kappa built the 2007 model.

I hope I explained it so you can understand.

And the 2007 Solstice started June 26,2006 not August 31st like someone posted.

Total Kappa production until end of July: 28,418 cars, see graph

http://www.skyroadster.com/forums/showpost.php?p=93167&postcount=6

Pitcom's car > AZ1029144 > car 726 in Aug
With ~ 130 cars/day it should be produced on the 6th day of Aug. production (08/07/2006)

Ernest's car > AZ1029421 > car 1003 in Aug
With ~ 130 cars/day it should be produced on the 8th day of Aug. production (08/09/2006)

In this AZ counting are all Kappas ever build and showing the same data as GM prod & sales.

There is quite a big difference between produced cars and cars reached the customer (sold cars). Here are the numbers for the last three month:

month.....prod........sales......delta
----------------------------------
June.......26143.....19832......6311

July........28418.....22034......6384

August....31842.....24622......7220
----------------------------------

These cars are:

- on the lot at the plant
- on quality hold
- GM test cars/preproduction
- on transport (~ one month production)
- show cars at the dealers
- unsold at the dealers lot

Actually the ratio of unsold is more then 20% of total production.
The absolute number of unsold will go up the next month (start of Opel production) but the percentage will slowly go down.

Just frame it under glass with nice matting. This way you don't have to worry about the troublesome air bubbles that always end up getting under the lamination. :thumbs:

I got lost here somewhere. My VIN is Y109880. This means my RL was produced 1793 cars after Ernests ?? It was delivered to the dealership on 9/10. What day was it produced ??
Look on the inside if the door I believe the production date is on it. Ernest car was held in captivity for quite awhile.:)
