Regarding the Saturn and/or Sky name stated on the car.....

To achieve best results when restoring the original paint on our Base Sky, I removed the "SKY" name from the rear bumper and the GM chiclets in the front fenders. This leaves the three red Saturn logos and five silver logos. For reasons I cannot explain, people don't notice the Saturn badges and often ask me "What car is that?" With the top down, people think it's some kind of exotic Italian sports car.

So, I am not inspired to badge "Sky" and "GM" back on the car. Without them sticking up, it remains a lot easier to give the car a good polishing.

Because for most of it's lifetime, the Saturn logo had the word "SATURN" underneath it. It was only in the last few years that they went with the square logo without lettering.

So, previously, people would see the Saturn word and read that - for the most part ignoring the actual Saturn image. Now, when they see the image by itself, they don't recognize it.

I took my after market bodied 56 MG to a local Italian car day and everyone thought it was some Italian car they had never heard of (only hint was the engraved "MG" on the knock off spinners).

Yeah, it is about the only 'kit car' I have ever liked the look of - they managed to get the proportions right - 1960s Corvette windshield and 911 rear window. . I powered it with a GM 3.4 V6 and T5.
