My chicklets are in that location as well. (Lower Door)

But that's because they put them on the body shop in this spot. I was going to make them take em off and put them in the right location, but I like them where they are now.

When the Sky first came out and was being toured across the country, the prototype was pushed on and off the truck. The guy behind the wheel had a Mullet hair cut. Thus Mullet Man. He must have done quite a few showings, as they pushed that prototype on and off the truck. Ask Mike of Marlboro he might remember. Angelquit, who was a forum member in California actually started a thread about who this mystery man was that showed up at all the presentations. This is history of when the Sky was first introduced on the market.....Skip.....

Because of the gauge face color. On the 2.4L cars they're black, but on the 2.0L they're white. Also, IIRC, the 2.4L speedo only goes to 140 as in the pic, but the 2.0L goes to 160. That tach is looking pretty fishy though...

But that's an astute observation Hyler. My guess is that this was intended to convey an "optioned" 2.4L; hence, the black background on the gauges, the sport pedals, radio controls on the steering wheel, leather interior... and traction control?

Number 3 The other button on the door may have been a trunk release. Many GM cars have the trunk release low on the panel.
