Oh friends, I need some encouagement. I have been told for the past week that my car has already been shipped on the rail. The cars that are delivered here come all the way by rail, then trucked the last 15 or so miles. My dealer paid my invoice OVER 2 weeks ago. Everytime I get off the phone, I start crying. I told my hubby last nite that I was just gonna tell the dealer to forget it and give me my deposit back. But he said, honey you have come so far. I am just soooooo damn frustrated.
How long have others waited from the time there dealers paid the invoice untill they got there car?
:mad:

OK, I have to admit you brought a smile to my face. I know your right, and it would'nt be so bad if it was still being built, but its past all that. I just wanted to know how long it should take from the time your dealer paid your invoice.... Thanks for the smile :D

I'll be watching for yours as mine has been shipped also and my dealer has been invoiced. So i can feel your anguish as I am feeling enough for both of us. Hang in there it will be here soon, and all this will be in the past.

Anytime. I am trying to think....do I know anyone with a ladder truck in your neck of the woods? It will be like the others...you're in waiting hell, then the next day, in driving heaven. :driving: :) :) I need this as much for me because I haven't even imaged yet, and all I got to do is think of all the others who had to wait soooooooooo long.

Woo Hoo! I just exited the club! My Sky just came in today and I get to pick it up on Saturday!

OK, I really feel for you not getting your's in yet, but YEA!!!

Our Sky was released to carrier on April 18th and arrived to the dealer on May 5th. I live in Michigan so you can get a better jist of the travel time from there.

Young lady you listen to me right here 'n now. I don't want to here anymore of this foolish gibberish about given up. You are a veteran of the trenches here and you don't want to quit now, and spend the rest of your drivin' days wonderin' "What If?" or "I Coulda' Been A Contenda!! I have been away to long due to cirumstances and look what I find, weakness, weakness & more weakness. Well I am back for the most part and looks like I am gonna have to whip this here group back in line. Straighten' up:eek: Fly Right:thumbs:
Now, don't you feel better?:D Now get up and git er done!!!:D

Ya see, the invoice is warp-speeded to the dealer so GM-daddy can't get his moolah ASAP while the product is shipped on special rail cars that travel just slightly faster than a snail (0.03MPH) so you should see it any month now :D

I can think of five or six people on the forum who after starting a thread like this recieved there Sky in the next week or couple of days.

Hang in there as painful frustrating as this is, once you get the car you will forget all about, and be too busy :driving: :thumbs:

If you don't believe me try doin this :banghead: for a while and see how good it feels when you stop! :willy: :D *

Hey, Don't you dare quit now. I have NOT beeen waiting as long as you have but I have been going thru my own torture and I know how it feels....... My baby is sitting in the dealership as we speak. I can Look at her, I can Touch her, I can Sit in her, I can take Picture's of her and I can also have visitor's but I still can't bring her home. What's worst I have other people sitting in her, touching her and drooling all over her.

You see I have already paid for my Sky but the title has not arrived and I agreed to let my baby stay in the showroom until the next one shows up.

I go there almost every day and make sure there isn't a single mark or even a smug on her.

It's killing me to not bring her home.........

I've had other people say I am Nut's for allowing this to continue but if I didn't buy the one that came into the showroom last week I wouldn't even have my image yet. I placed my order and deposit on March 25th and I would have been # 3 on the list just to be imaged. I would have been lucky if I received my Sky anytime this year. Hopefully I will have her next week!!

Your baby will be here before you know it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's shipped and you want to give up? Your going to have it any day now! This is no time to walk away! Just stay patient! The key is lots of patience! Many Sky hopefuls won't see their car for months! They would all give a LOT to trade places with you!

Buck up girl you know this is how it is in SKY land. You have read a dozen posts about THE AGONY, we all know how you feel. Lean on us that is what we are here for, but don't give up.

What difference does it make??? -- You willing to let someone ELSE have YOUR car?? Someone who is gonna watlz into the dealer after hearing about The SKY on Friday -- and will drive home Saturday night -- While YOU waited and got tears?
I don't think so...
