Hang in there man! I put down my deposit in April and am #30 on the list. They say they are getting one or two per month. :mad: Imagine the wait I'm in for. Went to the dealer today where I saw a beautiful green with black roof and interior. They said it arrived this morning and it was ordered two months ago. While there I asked for another test drive and was once again amazed at the ride!:willy: It was just the hit I needed.

The re-edit is probably for the wheel change, don't worry, your order will move fast, check my event history in another thread. Hang in there you are a lot better shape then a lot of people, who would give anythhing to be in your spot.

Ernest, don't build his hopes up too much. I ordered mine in early July, I have a similar event code, but he and I have manuals. That will slow things down somewhat.

Candy Store

HATE TO TELL YOU BRO...BUT YOU SOUND LIKE A CHILD IN A CANDY STORE AND MOMMY JUST SAID NO TO THAT PEANUT BUTTER CUP!

SERIOUS DUDE....chill!

YOU Think you're the only one that waited for your SKY?

YOU think people are not waiting today still for their SKYS?

I put my payment down in MARCH...Drove mine home in JULY!

Just chill out....when it gets to you...it will get to you!

What do you want them to rush you a DEFECTED ONE so you can say you got it in your driveway?

Believe me...ask the first SKY OWNERS...you don't want a defected SKY.

You will get your Sky...all you need to do is stop being that child in the candy store right now.

Macpar, Relax. Maybe I shouldn't of sent you your codes and you would of been much happier. If you think yours is bad, when I got my first Solstice they moved me to code 3800 and gave me a vin number then took it away and they had to input all the info again. They used my order as a test car. And if you are getting the Red Line this could of happened to you.

Next, when they inputed my order for the second time it moved really fast. In one day I went from 2000 to 3400 and made a few days after. So this can happen to you.

But they are pumping out the Base Sky's and Solstice's, so if you got a base you shouldn't have a long wait.,

"macpar4"......TRUST IN DELUKE.....but keep the "nite-lite" on.......just in case.

I honestly think that part of this car is the wait....and it will be well worth it. Sort of like a "rite of passage" as it were.

Think of David Carridine at your dealership, now close your eyes and hear his words............."only those who have suffered can truly atain the path of smooth asphalt, sunny skys, mid-80 degree top down..... right foot planted flat on the F******* floor :driving: :driving: ....."this is said in the prophyesy of the brochure..:confused: .....:nono: we must wait for the the "UNIT" :banghead: as the wait purifies us:brentil: and gives us the time :willy: to dwell on our choices......this it is said young Grasshopper"....your milage may differ!

I don't think he should chill. He's excited about a car for probably the first time in his life. I mean the Solstice and Sky just does this to you. They are 2 special beauty's !!! When I got my Solstice it was like being 8 again and Santa just came. ( and I'm 52 ) And it will be the same or worst when my GXP comes in.

But relax and take a deep breath. I do have a feeling yours will move along pretty fast now. I'll PM you later.

I can understand the excitemnt and anquish, having already been thru this back in Jan, I realize his anticipation, Lord know some of the old forum family members can attest to my high anxiety:lol: :lol: I was such a newbie then, amd this forum helped me maintain an even strain and gave me the support and understanding I needed. I highly recommend spending a lot of time on the forum, it eases the wait a might. :thumbs: :thumbs: That is what I prescribe, and if I can help, PM me. The Doctor is in:thumbs:

I remember the wait all too well. I found out about the car way before it was in production (Aug 05) and placed an "order". Well ,it was really just a piece of paper saying I could order when they were in Production. There was no price set or production date set for the car. But I wanted it and I waited a long 9 months to get mine. Im sure there are a few that have waited longer. Was the wait worth it? Yes. Did it make me crazy? Yes. Would I do it again? Yes. When I see folks talk about waiting a short 3-4 months I just shake my head and smile.
