I got a call from my dealer last Mon saying they had 2 SKYs that were preordered, but now they could sell. They were going down the list and asking us all if we were interested. I was just curious why someone turned them down...and this is his reply.

Well, both purchasers DIED before their cars came in! Its sad, but, can you believe that? Not just 1, but 2 people died waiting for this car. I thought I had a long wait, but I won't complain anymore. Just thought I'd share.

One of the reasons that I got bumped up the list, was because a person ahead of me became very, very ill. But that is pretty freaky that 2 people died waiting for their car.

Love your humor Rick !!!!!!!!!11

Called my salesman last Friday and really got the run-around. Finally talked to the Sales Manager and found out that my salesman died the night before. He lived alone, fell in his bathroom, hit his head and bleed to death.

The Sky is taking its toll isn't it !!!!!!!!!!:confused:

No Skywulf, I'm NOT kidding. My salesman died last Thursday. The Sales Manager says he will take over my account. Actually the salesman was very nice. It's the sales manager that's a reall so-and-so.

Oh that is AWFUL! Poor guy! Yeah, the GM at my dealership seems to be icky too, but I like my saleslady. I kept my business there only because of her.

Oh, Jeeze Rick, maybe we shouldn't ! :lol: :lol: I am a woman driver after all...that is why I could not get a manual transmission...I am on the phone, in the coffee, not paying attention. Hubby was convinced if I had to shift I would drive under a tractor trailer.

Cause of death?

Let's just hope somone else on the list didn't get ahold of the names ahead of them and have anything to do with the cause of death of those ahead of you.

I suppose we should not be too surprised that out of a population of thousands of individuals over a period of several months that some small percentage would suffer illness, injury or worse, but to have two of them on the same list at the same dealership is freaky

Sounds like we have a new conspiracy theory.

I was number 6 on my list until about a month ago. The dealership could not get a hold of number 5. They finally sent a registered letter and were contacted by his estate... I am number 5, and yes it feels somewhat creepy.
