First off...hi folks...I'm back home safely from my bike trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway! :thumbs:

Now for the Sky news...stopped at my dealer this afternoon for an update. The good news is...my Sky is sitting at the railyard in Chicago Heights. The bad news is...it's been there since 6/20 and my dealer has no idea when it will get on a truck and get to the dealership. :banghead: My GM is going to call on Monday to see if he can get more info. He says that the truck waits until there are at least 3 cars on it before it will leave the railyard, so that is what the holdup is, apparently. Dealer said that he will try to really push to have it here by this weekend cuz it's been almost a month now that the car was built and I still don't have it yet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get that phonecall sometime this week. :willy:

Welcome back. I'm sure you had a great time.:D

If you were TPW at 5/22 with a status code 3800 as of 5/30 and its been sitting in a rail yard since 6/20 I don’t see how I am getting my Sky within 2 weeks after my TPW of 7/30. That doesn’t seem right does it? It seems like its taking almost a month to get yours after your TPW. My salesman says I will have my Sky 2 weeks after 7/30. Or maybe he doesn’t really know. :rolleyes:

Same Hellish Boat!

Bra I feel for yeah man! I feel for yeah!

My arrival date: 6/22/06 :D

Todays date: 6/24/06...Do I have my SKY? :mad:

HELL NO I DON'T! :banghead:

After my dealership told me it would be here on Thurs...IT NEVER SHOWED!

It's on the truck...I just think it took a trip to the TWILIGHT ZONE before it arrives sometime in the next few days...

If it doesn't show up by TUES...SATAN HIMSELF is doing to BURST OUT OF ME AT MY DEALERSHIP! :brentil:

There is no ALOHA today! :devil:

Mine took 13 days to arrive at dealer here. I think it sat at the yard in Ft Worth several days. Then it showed up at dealer on a car hauler all by it's lonesome. I was told the the truckdrivers take the longest hauls first, more miles=more money, and mine being less than 25 miles was the last one to be dropped. Dealer had tried in past times to go get cars for depot and drive them to dealer themselves, TEAMSTERS put a big:nono: :nono: to that.

Now there's a union that deserves to get a 500 million dollar class action lawsuit for price fixing labor rates and screwing the public for the past 60 years.
Oh where is you, Jimmy Hoffa?

Glad you are home safely from your blueridge trip - how was your ride?

Your dealer could arange with the trucking company to go pick it up at the depot. You can gice him a ride there. All he has to do is call them and make the arangements.

It's posible, but he really doesn't know. He's just assuming.

Thanks Carlie...the ride was awesome. I logged 2,332 miles total for the trip. Saw 1 silver Solstice in Blowing Rock, NC...but saw tons of MG's on the Parkway and on The Dragon...pretty sure there was an MG rally going on that week.

My GM said that they used to be able to have that option (picking the cars up themselves)...but can no longer do that. I've waited this long already...what's a few more days at this point. :willy:

They are doing it with the Solstice if your dealer is willing. You have to contact the trucking company not general motors or Saturn. I'm sure it can be done on the Sky also.

Glad to have you back...
YIKES no car! Abandoned in a railyard yet. You tell him to send an E&R towing rig (platform -- not hook!) to deliver your car to you!
I hope you get a call Monday morning ...

Hope you had a good time
