Chears and Gears has a thread with some nice pics of a green Sky with ebony. The OnStar/XM antenna makes it look like it has a tail though :(

I'm not feeling the Envious on the Sky... it's too drab on the pointy car, it makes the smooth curves look good on the Sol but just dulls down the Sky I feel.

Was that Randy Jackson ... ;) I don't like it on either car, so I agree;however, I cannot wait to see the Bluestone and the Sunburst Yellow :thumbs:

I've been trying hard to hold this in, but can do so no longer.

"Green? What color _is_ the sky in your world?" :glol:

I see at least one other agrees with me - I like the front of the SKY a lot more than the Solstice, but like the rear of the Solstice more than the Sky.
But you couldn't graft a Solstice rearend onto a Sky,because the Sky has
an edgy design while the Solstice has a curvaceous design. Would be like mixing oil and water.

I like the Solstice better.. but if I keep hearing about technical problems with the sol.. and the waiting list continues to grow into 2008, then it looks like I'll be driving a Saturn.

Well unless you've gotten yourself on a Saturn waiting list you're going to be waiting even longer for that car too then. A lot of dealerships already have a ton of pre-orders, and a lot of RL pre-orders too. Plus factor in there being half as many Sky's made as Solstices that doesn't help either. Whichever one you want you need to have put a pre-order in like yesterday. Also 2008 sounds kinda bogus as a wait time frame, if you get a pre-order in now and you're near the end of the dealers current 4 month allocation, or not to far after it you'll get a car the end of this year or the first half of next year depending on allocation or not.

Funny, green (with tan) has been my fav color. Bought a green and tan Miata on impulse cause the color combo looked so good (five years ago). And I like the Sky a lot. But this color just does't make it on this car. Maybe live it comes across better.

Where did you get your information?

Where did you get your information on pre-ordering a Sky. I have now talked to 3 Saturn dealers in the CA Bay area and none are taking any names for a list. They all said that I should sign up on line and wait to hear from Saturn when we will be able to order. And by the way, at a local Pontiac dealer I would have been able to custom order a Solstice built this year yet for the small sum of a $5000 mark-up. I think not!!

SOL :thumbs:

SKY :yawn:
I like them both and if I were to say one was :yawn:, then it would be the Sol ... but in a good way! ;)

The Sol is smooth, sleek, and classy ... which comes across as :yawn: to the young guys.

The Sky mixes the choppy Caddy front with a hint of the Vette (vents) on the side. Add the vents on the hood and the Red/Black leather and I would say that the Sky is far from :yawn: . ;) JMHO Did I mention that the Sky has Sunburst Yellow and Bluestone? ;) :yesnod:

Again, I believe neither are :yawn: in my book. They will both be head turners ... all GM needs to do now is DELIVER!

JMHO, the sol has the classic roadster look, I think the sky looks like a combo Miata, Sol, and an assortment of vehicles, but each to there own, I just think the Sky looks like a bad attempt of looking like a modern SOL. But I am biased, no harm intended.
