1999 SL2
Default Proud new member of a near mint 1999 Homecoming Edition

Hey everyone, just wanted to say a big hello to all the Saturn lovers out there....Long story short.....Back in 1999 my wife purchased a 1999 Saturn Homecoming edition from Saturn, Saab, Isuzu of Mississauga Ont..(long before I met her)..About 7 years ago, due to driveway space issues we gave the car to my father who only put 1000 kms on it. And now the car has come full circle back to me again. I gotta say, the car looks fantastic still, bone stock and could be sold in the showroom again today. I will get some photos up shortly once I give it a proper detailing.

Looks like I can't post URL's until I hit 15 posts.......

Jason

All of the above is done...When my wife still had the car about 6 or 7 years ago, I did all that work. I even purchased brand new in the box 2 sets of Homecoming edition mats. I still have them from GM's vintage vehicle services. While parts were still available I bought all 4 brand new sail panels...(the black glossy trim that goes between the windows, the old ones had all the clear coat peeling off.

Also I have all the GM Canada documentation(vintage vehicle services) about the vehicle, There was a grand total of 2,895 SL2's imported in to Canada in 1999 ONLY 135 of them were Homecoming editions!

Production date was March 10, 1999 on my car

Neat!

Always great to see an original owner, too. Your wife counts because she bought it off the lot, even though it went to someone else for a while - the car made its own "homecoming" and is back home in your driveway

Yeah I guess it never actually left the family so to speak. I have it sitting in my driveway right now, not insured. My mechanic loaned me his dealer plates so I could drive it home. Just need to get it certified and the ownership in my name. I really do not plan on driving it too much, just once a week or so. My other cars is a 2016 Cruze and 2002 Camaro SS

Appreciate the offer, I am also a shadetree detailer, with my porter cable, compounds and pads.....Don't worry, you will be blown away when you see the car. Problem is now the weather is starting to turn cold in Ontario, rainy etc. A full detailing may not happen until the spring of next year.....I would bring it in the garage but my 2002 camaro ss is stored in there. That never leaves the garage....lol

Weird, I can see it & others saw other pics hosted on the same site.

Try right clicking on any blocked image and choose "view image"

Perhaps it's because you're still under 15 posts.....
