Very interesting. I wonder whatever happened to the "previous bidders" for Hummer that were in the news after the first deal fell through.

I wonder if these Outlooks are going to be 2010s or 2011s and if they're going to come with the 3.6DI...

You have to wonder who will sell these Outlooks now that the Saturn retailer network has largely disappeared. Could they be fleet sales too?

It's highly likely they'll get whored out to fleets, possibly be used an executive cars or something. Maybe, just maybe go to some of the few remaining dealers.

Unless you took it to a paint shop afterwards... that's what I'd do if it didn't come in blue (my favorite color ).

Well, if you're talking to someone who is assigning value to the vehicle by way of a "rare" paint color, the repaint is worthless. The paint code contained in the RPO list will give it away as an imposter. But if it's because you like the color, then heck yeah, do it up and be happy with your car!

In a somewhat related story, I read that Saab has just resumed shipments of 2010 cars to the US after it was sold to Spyker. Current models and the upcoming 9-4 will continue to use GM parts and designs till the end of the models cycle.

The last new Saturn on Saturn of Lexington's lot was a blue Sky with silver racing stripes down the center of the hood/trunk. It was the only blue Sky I ever saw--darned near bought it---it was discounted heavily. Only problem was, it was non turbo automatic!
