Hi ALL..... I got this today from Saturn... thought it was worth passing on..... maybe the Solstice is looking better every day..:banghead: :banghead: . or even that z4 i was looking at...... HAVE A GOOD ONE..... SkyBaby-07







Thank you for your loyalty to the Saturn brand. Terilynn, the Saturn
retailer would have more detailed information about the SKY, since they
do
sell the vehicles daily and would receive the most up to date
information.
We are aware that each marketing area will only receive 2 vehicles at
the
start of production. Under regular production it can take from 8 to 10
weeks
from an order being placed to the time the owner takes ownership of the
vehicle. With the SKY just starting up, the waiting period may be
longer. I
would think if you are number 9, that you would be the ninth person to
receive a SKY which is delivered to your retailer.

If you have any additional questions or comments, please feel free to
e-mail
us again or call us at 1-800-553-6000, prompt 3.

Sincerely,

Now, now SkyBaby, lets not make hasty decisions, you know that you will never be happy unless you are driving in your SKY. Notice the use of the word "can" & "may" in the above text, that there is a use of non-definite terms used in speculation answers. Looks to me like a standard "cover yourself" Leave the door open to change type of a definite maybe answer.
Since I believe the demo images are well on their way on the assembly line,
The line should be ready to roll pretty quick, and if you believe the SKY calendar hints, the day they hit the showroom the plant will be more than capable or handling orders expediently, After all it doesn't make sense to have a demo car in the showroom and not be able to get delivery for weeks when you are standing there staring at one already built. This excludes car shows where mock ups and hand builts abound. Just food for thought. Trust me the demand for this little roadster will be so great they might even slow the SOL or stop the Sol production for a whule just to meet the demand our baby is going to cause.

they are well aware of this, believe me, and are just covering themselves in case of problems found on assembly that cause production slow downs or even halts. They do not want to give definites because they can't be pinned down that way. So just sit back and stay with us SkyBaby, your presence on this forum is wanted and needed. All of us are destined to be be SKY owners, don't fight it, roll with it!!

Earnest: the eternal optimist.... Remember Murphys law...... "If anything can go wrong it will".... "always believe in the worst case then you will never be dissapointed"... and "Murphy was an optimist..."
Hang in there Sky Baby... besides "Sky Baby" sounds much better than "Solstice Baby"....and you will have your pink Sky T-Shirt....

How about the power of positive thinking, I am positive something will go wrong. Anyway i got all the time in the world to wait, I have been around long enough to know that patience is a virtue, but dreams are a welcome release for the mind. Meanwhile, my bank account keeps growing & growing as the gas keeps pumping & pumping. Life is great here in the state of Texas,
YUP!!!!

I know this hideous waiting seems interminable! That's a good thing that people are dropping out in front of you! I'm not sure at this point who really knows what. Based on what Ernest has told us all though I think production is around the bend. I'm using him as my gauge, he is a Saturn buying veteran and I think with his dealer that he's used forever that he is getting accurate info. I'm desperately trying to stay positive and I'm also cruising the Solstice forum for info, it's very interesting over there. So, hang in there SkyBaby, you'll get your SKY while there is still good weather up there I'm sure! If not, have it trailored down here and hang out with Ernest and the rest of us! We have convertible weather virtually year round!:thumbs:
