Wow, it even has shiny paint! The carpet needs attention... it looks horrible for only 67,000 miles. I don't care for the natural vinyl seats.

Chicago? No problem. Just make sure your trailer has at least H rates tires on it. If you aren't doing double the speed limit your gunna get run over.

Don' t have a trailer.

I have a dolly I built - using s-series rear wheel bearings and Saturn steel rims. Best part - I bring a full sized spare - and it's good for both the towed car and the dolly.

Tows an s series behind a 1/2 ton Chevy truck wonderfully.

No, not a special edition. Also probably not black as listed - I think that's what Saturn called "Black Gold" - my wife nicknamed it "root beer". In the bright sun you can see that it's really a very dark metallic brown.

That car is really close to me, about 20 min away. I'm tempted to go check it out just for nostalgia. It's very similar to the 96 SC2 I had...

Not so much a deal of the day as the price is unlisted, but the reality that Saturns are harder to come by on Long Island.

https://longisland.craigslist.org/ct...954171859.html

Lindenhurst is in Suffolk County, roughly 35 miles east of NYC. This was the only S-Series provided on CL in my area; that's how rare they've become.

The ad says $3500. Not so much a deal of the day but definitely a low miles find.

You will notice they don't show the metal in the rear door sills --- the first place you will see rust. Not a single undercarriage picture either.

That would make me suspicious...

Edit to add..

I guess you can see part of the drivers side rear.. Sorta.

Remembered when I was going to buy an SW2 Manual here in Minnesota from a dealer and asked if they could provide photos of the rear door open showing the lower metal near where one's foot would be.

Received a photo of the plastic door outer shell only, decided it wasn't worth finding out after a few hours of driving if it was rusted through

Used car dealers tend towards the slimy side.

They figure they can "sell you" on a rusted out hulk.

I had one try that on me a couple months ago. He has (still) a 98 SL2 that has rust thru on the mounts for the trailing control arms.

He was asking $3500 for it.

He is down to $2500 and told me it was an "easy fix".

I left my number - and told him to get back with me after he gets it fixed...

$800 for a Red Hot edition SC2 that's in need of some work.

https://scranton.craigslist.org/cto/...965384256.html


New headlight and possible new hood needed at a quick glance. For $800, if it were closer I'd jump on it.
