great pic...good thing the badges are still on the back...:lol:
Actually it still had the paper dealer tag with Saturn all over it. This guy had to take a close look to believe it was a Saturn. He was really shocked when I told him 27k out the door.

My husband and I are always hit with "What is it" and "How much is it" also. I told my husband I felt bad telling the cost because it is so affordable and I don't want to think about it ever losing it's uniquiness. He changed his standard answer now for the cost to "Less than a Ferrari". :lol: :lol: :lol:

Say "less than a Miata" and watch them puke!

Actually, one of my first days out I was catching the admiring stares of a Porsche Cabrio. The guy looked it over and said, "That's gorgeous!"

After confessing that I've always been a Porsche fan I added, "But I got this for twenty-five!" He smacked his forehead with the heel of his hand and drove off...

Same went for us on our test drive

I took out a red Sky from the dealership and took it to my work. I came out with a couple of co-workers and there is a guy talking to my wife not believing that it is a saturn. About that moment I turned to grin at my 2 supervisors and they were standing staring with thier mouths open.....Later one of them joked that they are paying me too much.....oh well, no cost of living raise for me......:cool:

I've been telling people "less than our Toyota Highlander". I like "less than a Ferrari" better. I think I'll use that too. Thanks

Standard painted wheels. I think they look good on silver pearl. If I were getting a darker color like black or midnight blue I would go with the chrome. The demo at the dealer was chili pepper with chrome and was beautiful. But, like I've said before, I don't think they make an ugly Sky.

A guy at my insurance agent was on the list for a Sky but his wife wanted more trunk space so he bought a BMW Z4. When I drove it in after taking delivery he was so jealous he was salivating. I thought that said alot so I'm sticking with "less than a z4" as my answer.

I guess a po boy like me can't afford that extra 30K for trunk space. I wonder if I could knock out the back up light and install a trailer hitch so I could tow one of them little motorcycle trailers. I'm surprised that Skip hasn't already thought of that.:lol:

I agree that's what's coming on my sky also silver pearl, I wanted the chrome and still do if I can find some for sale. The picture of your car in the driveway, is the picture that I couldn't really tell if they were painted or polished aluminum, beautiful car with the painted wheels

I posted an idea a long time ago about making the center back up light either a plug in unit or a flip up unit with a receiver behind it for a hitch....
