Sorry to hear of your business dealings with SAS. I get contacted periodically from others on the infamous SAS list that are seeking advice about the likelihood of ever getting a car from Steve Lawing. As you know, the situation looks bleak. If he is completing cars, he is not delivering them to those at the front of the list.
A former user of this forum, who still supports SAS and owns a silver SAS Speedster, has told others on the SAS forum that Lawing is still very much in business, working like a dog, everything is rosy, yada, yada. Meanwhile, there has been one car delivered since mine was finished in Aug. 2013. Not very promising, eh? No one really knows how many buyers have put deposits on cars, or how many cars are being completed. If cars are being built, they are NOT being delivered to the poor guys who have been waiting as long as 14, yes 14 years. The top three on the list put down deposits in 2003 and 2007. Man, is this a great country or what?
You can send me a private email if you want to discuss additional options. Best of luck in whatever you decide.
