Congrats! I bought one when it was new and love it. You've got many days and many miles of 'permagrin' ahead.

Good luck and have fun.

Mine is one of 3! Looks like there were fewer non-SE Ruby Reds than SEs.

Forget about the rarity on Compnine, it refers to the exact combination of options. My car is 1 of 1. Big deal. With so many options it is easy to have an answer that makes your cars look rare. Look instead at the rarity of the actual individual options on your cars.

Are the Sky short runs properly called "Limited" or "Special" Editions?

Rich - The only thing that separates the basic SKY and an SKY SE is the paint job and yes SOME come with different wheels.
Its not that they come specially built Hemi Engines, Special body kits, Super custom leather Interior or Gold trims....
So to me their is nothing Special about the SE on a SKY, just a selling tactic.... IMO

Thanks, Vic. Agreed. The most "special" thing was the price, which was inflated.

But... Is it SE or LE? Which is correct in Saturnese? Special or Limited?

When I was searching for total numbers of different color combinations for the SKY I notice just the SE don't remember seeing any LE....
Have a nice Week-end Rich!

Well...not really.

There were 500 Ruby Red Special Editions built (133 base, 367 redline). These cars all had special stripes, special wheels and custom stitching in the interior.

There were ALSO an additional 494 cars built with the same Ruby Red paint, but without the stripe, wheels, or stitching. These were NOT special editions, they just happened to have the same color paint.

The 89 Hydro Blue cars were also marked as Special Editions, (and had stripes, special wheels, and special stitching).

But, the 550 Carbon Flash cars (from 2008) were labeled as Limited Editions. They did have stripes, but had standard wheels and (I believe) regular stitching.
