7 years ago...... (my road to a Saturn sky)

So this story starts 7 years ago
A boy (me) saw a Beautiful car in car and driver. me "What is this? a Saturn. No saturn doesn't make anything exciting... What Saturn is now the american opel that is awesome."
I then found out all I could about the car joined this forum (lost that user name years ago). I loved everything about this car. Went to the saturn dealership and told them about this car. They gave me a calendar (I believe 2006 calendar) I looked at those pictures over and over. When I found out (through this forum) that there was to be a turbo. OH Man I thought. I went straight to the dealer and told them I wanted to be the first one in my home town to have a redline, first they said there isn't going to be a turbo. But as a good dealership they took my 500 dollar deposit. Came back a few weeks later and they said you were right there is going to be a turbo. I was thrilled I was going to have the first car in my town. Then trajedy, I lent my 93 prelude to a friend whom wrecked it. I had to take my deposit back to pay for the repairs and lost my spot.

I met a beautiful girl (6 foot 2) and I decided to focus my energies on getting the girl. A few months later we were engaged and I decided it was time to grow up. I wanted to pay off all my debt before we got married that ment no sky for me. At my wedding my vows ended with "I give up the sky for you." people that knew me knew what I ment.

The years past and I continued to dream about the sky test driving some at dealerships but never convincing myself to get one as much as I wanted to. I needed to be responcible.

A few months ago we decided we would get me the car I wanted for so long. I started narrowing down the color I wanted. I got down to 2 about a month ago. I had been eyeing a few carbon flash editions and I liked the Techno gray. I decided I wanted to see a carbon flash before I got anything. One was about 4 hours away and I kept trying to push for us to go visit it just to see the color.
One day my wife calls me and says I'm having a bad day lets do something I say sure lets go to the movies, she says lets go to Oklahoma (where the car was) I say are you serious. yup. So we go and see it. Someone had put a hoodscoop and had smoked out the headlights, not my thing so I knew I wasn't going to buy it I just wanted to see the color. I liked it which didn't make my decision of what color I wanted any easier.

So what to do what to do. I continue looking at different cars and find 2 hydro blue saturn sky stickshifts. WAIT WHAT another color. yes, at first I was like eh its not worth an extra 5k for a color is it? Then I find out its one of 89 WHAT and only 49 turbos WHAT. and less than that Stick shifts. WHAT. there are 2 for sale???? one with only 8700 miles on the clock? I gotta get this car. I call and talk to the person selling it. Sweet lady. I will be picking the car up at the end of the month. The wait is almost over!!!!! I'm so happy...... I'll post picks once I got it.

The Saga continues

I may not be getting my sky after all. Stupid taxes put me over what I had to spend on it. I'm still waiting on the owner to get back to me. Funny story though. I was going to fly to visit my sister's house (she has 2 adorable little girls) and drive from there to pick up the car. So I told my sister that I may not be getting the car and she calls me 2 minutes later to to say her daughter wants to tell me something. Her daughter just made 40 dollars selling jewelery at her Dad's concert. Lucy (my neice) says to me "uncle will I made 40 dollars selling jewelery and I want to give you 7 dollars so you can buy your car... (I could just melt...)

That is the sweetest thing!

Awww! My heart melted too when I read that! I hope you get your sky...I, too, have waited for a VERY long time to obtain my sky. Wanted one ever since they first came out. However, just got mine about 3 weeks ago. I am new here to the forum, been reading and reading and reading to get up to speed. But I will tell you, I am in love with my car...and you will be too! I will keep my fingers crossed for you that every thing will work out in your favor. Good luck!

What a delightful story, SFC. Have you prayed about it? James tells us (paraphrased) you have not because you ask not and you receive not because you ask amiss and then there's Matthew 6:33. While Im fairly certain Matthew wasnt talking about a Sky, the premise here is to make your requests known to God.

I'm glad you posted this. My sis told me she would be praying for me to be able to get it, and I've been praying for peace regaurdless of if I get it or not. The last thing I want is for this car to be my idol. If it occurs it will be a God thing. If it does not I need to still praise him as he knows best.

So, Sky For Christ, you might not be able to get your Blue Sky right now. All these cars are great, so, maybe consider another color. Or... maybe the seller will work with you on it, especially if it' s been on the market for a while.

Believe me, you can enjoy this car and call it a blessing as long as God allows you to have the funds to own it and care for it. I believe that Matthew 6:33 says, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." It won't be an Idol as long as you keep your priorities right. I waited for the right opportunity to buy mine and it came at the right time at the right price with the right equipment, the right color, for me. I was amazed as to how many people were happy for me and felt that I should have this car.
