2010 sky question

I saw there were a few 2010 skys on here in the past for sale. Any update on the location of any of them? Also, does anyone know the name of the dealership in Minneapolis that originally had all 8??? Thanks in advance

All of the Minneapolis Saturn dealers were owned by the same ownership group. Saturn of Minneapolis? I don't remember the name to be honest.

I cannot believe all 8 Skys went to Minn....because the last Sky on the assembly line went to Texas. That's what they told us at the Plant.

That might be, I don't know.

I know that the last car made at Wilmington went to Texas, It was a silver NA Solstice.

I don't know about the Skys.

The 8 2010 Skys went into GM's captured fleet for executive use on short-term internal GM leases. When they came off the leases, they all went to internal GM auction, and all 8 were bought by the same ownership group in Minneapolis. Several of us documented it somewhere on this forum.

Feel free to search it out. It's here somewhere.

I was looking but never found anything specific, was hoping someone that purchased one of them knew the dealership it was purchased at. Its amazing that these cars "dissappeared" given the history of them.

Of course if it went straight to auction it wouldnt have been at a dealer lot anyhow. But, either way, Im in search of 1, not to buy, just to see and get the history of its journey.

Don't know if this relates to the question of the last SKY built, but my understanding is the 30 units of model year 2010; Solstice (8), SKY(8), and Solstice Coupe (14), were all made somewhere around mid-May 2009. A compnine report of those VIN's would certainly confirm the dates of their production. (saw those VIN's somewhere on these posts just this morning and I don't have compnine access currently)

That said, the record shows the 2009 Solstice Coupe 9Y001152 was the last coupe built and on JULY 28, 2009. As mentioned, the last convertible was filmed and possibly after July 28, but within a couple of days of the plant closing is probably an accurate estimate.

So, keep in mind the 2010's were all actually built in MAY prior to the last 2009 Kappas built in JULY.

I relate to the last 2009 Coupe mentioned above because my coupe 9Y001137 was produced off the assembly line the day before on July 27, 2009.

Slight correction: 12 Solstice Coupes, and 2 Opel GTs.

All were end of April to end of May, 2009, they were intermixed with regular 2009 production runs.

I have the production dates of all 30 of the 2010s.

I'd have to modify my file a bit in order to upload without a few of the comments which are a bit confusing.

Later.

No need to upload that data for me. Your dates confirm for me the 2010 production close enough. Thanks for info on the 12 coupes and 2 Opel's.
