The Sky Thread

After gradually reaching my threshold for crap and abuse on the other forum, I have stopped going there at all. But I still feel like there needs to be a place where Sky owners can go to share information and ask questions. So I decided as an experiment to start the Sky Thread where Sky owners can come to share information and get answers to their questions. Without being hammered by the denizens of that other forum that are seemingly given free reign over there.

If you have something you want to share about your Sky, or questions that may be unique to the Sky, give it a try here. You never know, if there is enough interest the management might start an official Sky location here

I have long thought that there should only be one Kappa forum. They are the same damn car, aside from minor differences, so why split interest, which seems to be waning anyway based on post volume, between two fora?

This isn't the old days when the same car in with different labels on the nose might have actually had different engines (e.g. Firebored/Camaro). Everything that matters is identical - and the rest is just window dressing.

Current fleet:
1957 Jamaican bodied MGA
1958 MGA Twin Cam (race car)
1962 MGA Deluxe Coupe
1971 Jensen Interceptor
2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe
2007 BMW Z4M coupe
Recently departed: 1965 Jensen CV8, 1969 Lamborghini Islero S, 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT, 1969 MGC roadster

Thanks for the invite but

Pretty much every car topic has been hashed and rehashed over at the Skyroadster Forum during the past ten years . . . same as here. And there is already a direct link to this site on it's Main Page.

My objective is not to debate the state of any forum but to provide a user friendly place where Sky owners can come and share questions or information.

There really is only ONE forum for Sky/ Solstice owners, but it's neither the Sky or Solstice forum boards.

If it makes any difference, I'm here and I have learned so much from both forums.

I'm a lifetime supporting member on both forums. I don't read what doesn't interest me, and I don't let the curmudgeons get to me.

There does seem to be a level of "nasty" on the Sky forum but as has been said - try to ignore it. Not everyone is that way. Here we only have fun loving sarcasm followed by LOL AND of course, lots of (much appreciated) support for the newer people who are now finding these wonderful cars. Rob, noticed the comments on the Sky forum aimed at you - "ouch" - I'm sure that it is all in good fun. I like the feeling of being welcome here as well as the continuing support.

This particular forum member has a long standing practice of being as insulting and abusive as he can. This is most definitely NOT "All in good fun." He is a Cyber Bully and for reasons that I cannot understand, the moderators have chosen to let him be as abusive as he wants because "Sometimes he helps people out".

Very difficult to deal with as a regular member!

Went over there and took a peek. Loved your final post with the clip from YouTube of Bruno Ganz in "Downfall".

Thanks Rob for starting this thread for us Sky owners. As a Kappa owner of one each Solstice & Sky I appreciate the effort to keep the discussions civil and informative over here. And helps me from having to check the other site as often. I don't seem to frequent there nearly as often as I visit this site.
Thanks again! Much appreciated.
