I will be giving up one antique and one custom to get the Sky. That will still leave me with one antique and four regular cars to drive plus the Sky!

The Sky will become my commuter/drive to work car. The truck will still be used as a truck, and my Vette and Jeep will still be toys.

I have a 1961 Volvo P1800 that will be sold soon and a custom Mazda pick-up convertible that too will see a new owner. The other antique is a London Taxi and the other cars are just drivers, 2001 Impala, 2005 Prius, 1995 escort, 1991 F-150. I just bought them over the years and never got rid of them.

I chose that I would be keeping my current car... that is only half true.

I will be selling my SL2 and getting a used S-10 Blazer... I wanted a 2004+ V6 VUE... but the cost is still too high.

The Blazer I found is a 2000 LT with 100,000 miles for 5 grand. :-)

I really hope the person that buys my SL2 continues it's show car life.

Wow only 75K, my SC2 is also 11 years old but has 250,000 miles on it. I will probably keep it because I won't get jack for a trade in and the car still runs great.

Unfortunately, I just sold my 01 SC2 (the ink is still fresh on the title transfer, sniff, sniff). I put in a call to my dealer to see if he could maybe loan me a car since it's taking soo long to get my SKY -he said he would get back to me Monday.

My SKY will be the third Saturn I've owned(third time's the charm, I'm hoping). My first was a 95 SL1 (gone but not forgotten)-blue-black, 5-spd. Then I saw the 01 SC2 and fell in love with it-light silver, auto. I may have to borrow my brother's car (97 Mustang 5-spd) if Saturn can't let me borrow something for the next few agonizing weeks until my SKY arrives. I guess it will give me more practice driving a stick & rear-wheel drive. I may try to buy a clunker to drive in icy weather (it doesn't snow too much down here), but my SKY will be my primary vehicle. I intend on buying the longest warranty Saturn has and putting as many miles as I can on it

I messed up

Okay, so who can change my vote? Mine should be that I'm selling my car and the SKY will be my everyday car. Assistance please?

Giving my '94 SL1 to my granddaughter, she'll be 16 in July, when I get my SKY. My wife has a Ford Ranger so we will still have something to drive besides the SKY when the weather is bad, or we need to go to the store for more than a loaf of bread.

I have a 98 SC2 "White Hot". I cannot part with it so I will keep it for grocery shopping or when I need room for more than one passenger. My husband has a 2002 LW300 wagon but it isn't a "fun" car (except for him).

Not exactly "only" car

I am very interested in the Sky Redline - I have a 1996 Civic (paid off) and a 2004 Civic (lease ending in Nov). I am planning to get something along the lines of a Vue for the wife in May or June - then a Sky for myself in November time frame - I also have a 1964 GTO in the garage (but it needs a bit of work). The Sky would be my daily driver - but then I work at home so my daily drive is often nowhere at all. I do sometimes have to drive out of state for work - and about the only thing I do not like so far on the Sky is the cargo capacity - the wife and I have take a number of weekend trips and a couple of briefcases might just not quite cut it.
