I can't sleep....
I know I have a long wait, but I just moved to #3 for a redline at my dealer in Houston!!!!!!!
My 1st car....YEARS ago....Actually I was 14, and had a job to buy it, was a Triumph TR3.... Of ALL the cars I've had since, THAT is the one I wish I'd kept.
That was 40 years ago....
The SKY Redline will be ALL that and MORE.!!!!!:willy: :willy: :willy:

It'll be worth the wait! I'm still on the list for mine and am gonna be so PSYCHED when it comes in.

My first car was a bright Yellow Triumph Spitfire 1500 with a black top. Loved that little guy!

It was so low to the ground that I had to get out of the car and push it over the speed bumps in my neightborhood in order to get home!

Welcome to the line man!

Wait a second.......you're in Friendswood so you went to the one by Fuqua Rd. exit off of I-45 correct?

Those SOB's told me I'd be waiting on a Redline till this time next year if I'm lucky! - or were you one of the brave and wise ones that placed an order back in Late '05/Early '06?

Stopped there 1st... ended up dealing with the Dealer @ Katy Rd. (I10 at Beltway) Long story, but I pulled my request at Fuqua.

Had a Spitfire for a while.... always had overheating problems with it. Just figured a car fron the UK couldn't stand the South Texas heat. LOL

Yeah read my "Review" thread - I had a story to tell.
Good... I thought it was just me...LOL They ( the dealers) are part of the same group, but a world of difference. PLUS 50 miles difference one way.

But all of them told me the same thing, in a nutshell even if I woulda ordered TODAY it woulda been at LEAST a year before I'd be in my Redline and I will NOT settle for an N/A, I need boost darn it!

British Roadsters and USA

:cheers:
I did not acquire my 64 Sunbeam Alpine till 1989, was not restored and drivable till March of 2003. At least while I am waiting and its cooled off enough I can still get some wind in my hair :D
Maybe we need a poll on just how many of us have one or have owned a British roadsters and now want a new American roadster a Saturn Sky :thumbs:
I am going for the faster car this time a Redline Saturn Sky. Yep a Sunbeam Tiger would be nicer then that ole Sunbeam Alpine of mine, V8 verses a 4 banger, but it gets me around town.
:rolleyes:

I want to have the same feeling as driving my old MGB but without the 10:1 maintenance time/driving time ratio. This is my dream car. I laugh because with all the people calling for the extra HP of the Redline, the base Sky is going to feel like a rocket to me!
