Flashback Friday: the Last 2009 Saturn Sky

Flashback Friday: the Last 2009 Saturn Sky

For this week's installment of Flashback Friday, we only have to look back a little more than three months to this past spring. The date was Wednesday, May 20th, 2009 to be exact. On that day, GM's Boxwood Assembly Plant in Wilmington, DE built the last Saturn Sky. It was a 2009 base model with a polar white exterior and tan top (pictured above). The roadster's VIN ended with the numbers 8015, and it was shipped to Rockford, IL. The plant permanently closed at the end of July.

You can view more photos of the last '09 Saturn Sky inside the Wilmington plant online in the SaturnFans.com Photo Gallery.

General Motors to Auction Near-Classics from Corporate Museum

Flashback Friday: 1,000,000th Saturn

Jalopnik.com reports General Motors will auction off a number of vehicles from its vaunted Heritage Center museum collection in an effort to raise cash to help offset the huge losses the company is faced with due to the global financial crisis. There are about 1000 vehicles of historical significance in storage that GM uses for the displays at the museum, but only about 150 to 200 of those vehicles can be featured at one time. On the list of vehicles to be auctioned are several notable Saturns from the past. The website says they will be sold at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson auction held January 13-19 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
