Hi everyone, I am very new to this forum. I have written only a few posts so far. Please bear with me, I am going to tell my "Sky" story as only one very lucky "Sky Owner" can. I related part of this in another post to someone who was trying to order a Redline. And to the moderators, the general forum and "Skyroadster", thank you for the birthday wish this morning. I loved it.

I just joined this group a few days ago. I live in both East Texas, (Arlington), and West Michigan, (Grand Haven). I saw and read about the Sky a few months ago. I thought as soon as I saw it, I need one of those, that is really neat. I was extremely busy at the time and didn't have an opportunity to really check on one. I finally started making phone calls the day after I arrived back in Michigan for the summer, BINGO! I was lucky and hit a dealer at just the right moment, they still had their totally decked out demo model AND, another the same color that had been their first ordered come in earlier that week. The lady who ordered it could no longer buy it. They called the others that had ordered one and they all wanted to wait for their own. So, the management had a meeting that Friday afternoon at 4:00, and told their sales staff they were going to sell their Demo and keep the one that had been ordered. I called early Saturday morning, the salesman said "You are not going to believe this, but yes, we have one for sale, and yes, it's here right now". Need I say anymore? As soon as I pulled in and saw it sitting on their front lawn with the top down right next too the highway, I said, "It's mine". I did take it for a test drive, but when the salesman started pointing things out, I just said, "No need, your job's already done, the car was sold as soon as I pulled in your driveway, it's mine now". I took it home with me that same day and I love it. I had been looking at classic Corvettes in Texas because they have aways been my passion. But I wouldn't trade my SKY for one now, although they are beautiful cars. and I still love those too. The point I am making is, to anyone looking for a "Sky", it never hurts to call around and keep calling. Sometimes the people who order them no longer want them or no longer can take possession of them for one reason or another. If the others on the list do not want that car, then there you are. I realize in some areas this may not happen, but it could, it happened to me. As I said though, I bought one that has all the bells and whistles, every possible option, even the neat special order wheels, (which was all fine with me), and it was also black. So no choices, but I wouldn't trade it for any other color, it is beautiful. Start calling, you never know.

To all of you other "Sky" owners, isn't it the most awesome car you have ever driven? I can't spend enough time in mine. I/we, have actually saw two people drive off the road looking at it. It doesn't just catch attention, it commands it. From the very young to the very old, everyone smiles instantly when they see it. I had two men in a huge dump truck block me in a driveway when I was turning around, the driver yelled, "Who makes that?" I said, "Saturn", He looked confused for a minute and then with a big smile, he said, "That is SWEEEEEEEET!" I said, "Yes, it is".

I have taken pictures and want to post them in the gallery and the small one as well, but for some reason, I haven't been able to upload them.. possibly the size. I will keep trying.

Thanks for letting me share my Saturn story.

Pretty sure that you need to be a member for 30 days and have 30 posts before you get upload privileges.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum. I had the chance also just a week or so after I test drove the regular Sky to buy a chili pepper red that someone had walked away from. I am glad I said no, will wait for the Red Line and just a preference but a red color for a roadster or sports car is way to common, and black in Oklahoma would be way to HOT.
Black in Michigan would be great, enjoy your new shinny wheels!

Congrats!

Your car is beautiful! Congratulations!

I had a similar experience. Went to the dealer for a test drive one
evening, decided on the package I was interested in, and the next
day received a call from the dealer that they had a cancellation on
the same car that I was interested in! They added close to 8 grand
in upgrades, what they called "The Performance" package (with huge mark ups) but I am deliriously happy with this car, regardless!

Happy trails!
