Just got of the phone with one of my best friends. He and his wife (#3 on list at local Saturn dealer) went to the Cleveland auto show yesturday. Yea there was a red Sky there - that's not so exciting. On the way home, they were coming down I 270 and they saw a car carrier completely full of Skys heading north toward Cleveland. Now they are not much for the internet and they have not been caught up in all the hooplah out there - and they know what one looks like - for sure. And they know the difference between a Sky and a Solstice.

This is not first hand, but it makes sense from what I am reading here. I live about 10 miles from the GM Lordstown plant, the main hub for the Solstice to get put on trains and sent to the West and south. We have had thousands of Solstices come through here AND, it will also be the hub for Skys. Not all leave by train as I reported several weeks ago after seeing a truck load of Solstices (well 3-4 and some g6's) leaving the plant heading west on the Ohio turnpike.

For what it's worth . . . good news for all.

I also talked to my dealer and he received his second image. Ordered a black, black int. chrome, AUTOMATIC and it went through.

Over and out.

I'll check out the plant tomorrow...

What is exciting is looking out of a rear view mirror and seeing an almost evil looking set of headlights swooshing down the street behind you...

As soon as the car closed in behind me - I actually recognized it and slowed down to check it out...

A silver pearl SKY with black/red interior... The first time I've ever seen one in the complete dark of night!

The shape of the headlights give the SKY a real menacing look at night! I was soooooo excited! I was on my way to a dinner with a group of people, inluding Tyler 07 (who is getting the car just before mine). I was so glad that I had someone to talk to who would understand my excitement!

Is it just me, or is anyone else here regularly told that they are obsessing?? :D

I thought it was just me. Driving home last night (4 am) I saw a truck with 7 sky's. 2 red (one with tan top and one black), 2 silver (I don't know if they were silver graphite or silver pearl, but they both had black top) and 3 dark ones (either black or midnight blue). Anyone South of San fransciso order anything like one of those?

I'm told all the time by my students, 11 year-old son, and of course the wife! If my soon-to-be 7 month-old son could talk, he'd probably tell me the same thing too! :lol: :lol: :lol:

You saw that truck in southern Cali?
so far all sightings have been of trucks around plants or heading in the direction of distribution sites. If this is true, then yours would be the first sighting of a truck outside of those two areas. Its March 3rd and a truck already in Cali?

Acutally I saw it in San Jose. After seeing the truck it makes me wonder if the NUMI plant in Fremont (which is where the Vibe is made) is a distribution point for the Sky.

Time to throw my camera in the glovebox!! I drive 101 everyday to and from SF. If they are coming from your area they must take 101. I'll put my tent up on the shoulder and wait in ambush

I too went to the Cleveland show just to see the red Sky. I was going to get a black Sky but the wife wanted red. After seeing the Sky in red I was happy I listen to the wife,but any color looks great of course.I ordered my Sky here in Canton Feb.21 and per the dealer it should be here next month.By the way the Canton dealer is an excellent one!
