So I stopped in at Dunkin' Donuts this morning for my morning coffee (Large, hazelnut, black) And parked practically right next to me is a Sky. Oh, neat. I haven't seen one stopped yet. I was going to just walk right past it and into the store, but the gentlement passing me turned at the door and got out his keys.

I asked him "Oh, is this your Sky" Fully expecting him to respond how I always want to for the same question about my Solstice, "No, I just like to pretend to get into cool cars"

However, his reply was "Yes"
I told him "That's my Solstice right over there, how long have you had the Sky?"

He tells me it's a work car, and he's had it for about a week and loves it and that it's fast

During this talk I glance inside at the nicely stitched leather seats... With the word SKY on the headrest.

And right next to the SKY a white square... with a horizontal redline running through it.

I probably interrupted him "hold on a second... This is a Redline?"

So. Saw my first Redline today. All I know is the interior is beautiful, and that it's apaprently "Fast" and "Fun" and he "love it"

:)

Enjoy your day, all!

Do I get a prize?

Whhhaaa?? Huh???

This is why we all must carry a camera around with us!!!! We've seen the pics of the car in the plant, but none running loose outside of the cages?!?!

"A work car"? Is this person a GM exec, or a dealer? What other company buys a "first out of the factory, wait 7 months to get it" work car for thier employees?

What area is this in?

Did you tell them about this board... and to post good pics here?

Are you pulling our legs? :nono: :lol:

Pre-Production car given to an engineer to drive around - just like the one at the Solstice Meet in KC that the engineer there had. These cars are pre-production and won't be *exactly* like the ones SOLD.

If I have time today I'll try to locate the pics from KC of the Redline and post here for viewing.

::edit:: So far this is the only pic I've been able to locate, I thought there were a couple of the engine bay but I must be mistaken - sorry!

Right, I should have been more specific.

I live in SE Michigan.

this was a pre-production car from the Warren Tech Center.

I'm lucky enough to see a lot of great stuff come out of there.

I saw a Mean Solstice GXP last week on I-75.

P.S. Sorry about the lack of pictures... I should learn to carry my camera around. I used to have a camera phone, but alas, no more.

ok ok... I went a little over the edge. I'm better now.
"Stand back, there is nothing to see here"

hmmm... Ahnuld thinking his next trip to include video camer to capture the Redline in full drive mode with sound.

Of course, that would require some waiting around the plant.

Can you get arrested for stalking a car? :lol:

No not always. Constraint for manual should be AROUND 30%. But thats better the 10%. If you call that good.Thats what the Solstice is so the Sky is usually the same.

I guess I wrong. Only 17% for the manual on the sky. That stinks !

I ordered manual.
I was torn between Auto or Manual on my RL, and when I heard Auto was actually faster... I almost switched it.

With the situation on manual trans continuing... I may be taking a ride to dealer tonight to switch my order!
