Facebook is still Sterling Sports Cars. The website is not active. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I don't think it ever will be and I'm not monitoring the Facebook page anymore.

Can you expand on this a little more? What's going to happen with the molds etc? What has happened to say it may not happen now?

Who else besides yourself was involved? What can we as the Sterling community do to help?

Will PM you, Roger. I'd rather not go into detail on a public forum. And no, as a community, nothing anyone can do.

It sounds as if the plans to revive the Sterling have not panned out. Sorry to hear that. I was looking forward to seeing it back in production.

Not to the point as hoped. Fiberglass parts and glass (windshields, side and rear window) are available, just not much else. The owner dumped thousands into the molds and getting the baselines started, then the pandemic hit which hit everyone in the pockets. So, pretty much, no more money for R&D on the parts that he wanted to bring up to standards. The big issue is many of the previous suppliers don't carry the parts needed anymore (hydraulics, misc smalls), so accumulating parts to put together a coherent system that is reliable (in terms of hydraulics or actuators) is taking far more time than expected and more money - so that's on hold for the time being.

Maybe there is hope yet. Being on hold is not the same as being totally dead. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for the update!
