I'm just curious as to how long it took everyone to get their Sky from the time they put down a deposit until the time they actually received the car. I wonder if it would be worth cataloging the info by dealer....anyone interested in the numbers?

OK - I think I've outlasted you so far. 16 hours - wow. I think you should have bought a lottery ticket at the same time.

Yeah, I didn't think of that, but I probably should have. M wife, daughter and I were on our way to TGI Fridays and when we got there I saw the dealer. I had forgotton that there was a dealer practically accross the street from Fridays, so I decided to go in and see if they had a brochure. I had been reading about the Sky and decided I wanted a Redline, in graphite, with limited slip rearend, premium sound and so on.

I told my family to wait while I ran in. When I got in, there was the car. It had everything I wanted; graphite, limited slip, stacking CD w/XM, except it was not a Redline. The sales guy told me someone who ordered it bought a porsch instead and declined it earlier that day, so it was available.

I brought the family in. My daughter (11 years old) loved it. I was going to pass, but my wife told me to buy it. She talked me into it after I hemmed and hawed. Okay, it was not really hard, but she still had to talk me into it. I don't normally spend so much money on a near whim, but when the salesman told me it would be gone in 2 days I believed him. So I gave him the refundable deposit and figured I had all night to think about it. But I pretty much knew I was taking it. As I was handing over my credit card, 3 guys walked in and one of them started to sit in "my" car and I didn't like it!

So yeah, my luck was amazing. I think I used up my luck quota for the next 5 years :D

17 Years...

Living in Detroit, Mom works for GM, Dad works for Chrysler, I'm 20 years old and buy my first new car in 1979 - a Triumph Spitfire. Both my parents really let me have it for not buying an American car. I say to them, "Look! As soon as Detroit makes a decent 2-seat roadster, I'll be first in line."

In January of 2006, I put my deposit on my Saturn SKY. I lied though. I was second in line. But guy #1 cancelled out, and I was the first to take delivery of a custom-ordered SKY in Orange County, California.

5 months

My Dad ordered one in February - Automatic with Red and Black interior - both of which were back ordered for a while. it was built on May 29th but he only just got it a couple days ago (July 8).

I haven't ordered mine yet - planning to get a Red Line sometime after November.

Deposit on Apr 15, 2006. I was told that I would probably be able to order in July and delivery would be 4 to 6 weeks. So Aug or Sept. Dealer called June 6 and said they had a Sky someone had declined. I drove it home that afternoon. I'm another one that got lucky.
