Default Anyone collect Saturn memorabilia?

I was one of the first people to buy a Saturn in the Washington DC area. Quickly I became a Satun-nut, just hanging out at the retailer for fun. They would actually give me my own dealer plate and I'd greet people coming into the showroom and take them on test drives. In 1994 I traded my green SL2 in on a Homecoming car (which I just posted for sale in the classifieds forum) and two weeks after taking delivery I went to Spring Hill for Homecoming where I got to meet ex-pres Skip and had him autograph my car.

Over the years I've picked up a bunch of stuff that I've decided to clear out. I'm posting here to see if there's enough interest for me to put the stuff on eBay or sell it here.

Some of the various things:

- Sales brochuses from the first years of Saturn (the large ones)
- Extensive plate frame collection of almost all the dealers on the east coast (at the time, which was 93-94)
- Items picked up at Homecoming 1994:
- Lost form casting of Saturn logo
- Canvas bag with Homecoming logo (never used)
- Stack of Homecoming window cling stickers
- Flyer for the original Homecoming Edition car

...and I'm sure I can find more.


I've got other project cars to fund and need to clean out the basement. If there's any interest please let me know and I'll start pulling stuff out of boxes and taking pictures.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Here is my collection of Saturn Toys

Unfortunately I don't own all of the items pictures.

I also have all the brochures and stuff for the '01 model year focusing on the SC2 and I have already started collecting items regarding my soon to be purchased Ion Redline.

1996 SL2
1997 SC2
Default

I have one second gen SL2(dark green), three door coupe(yellow), VUE (burnt orange?), and one L-series (silver) in 1:18th scale diecast. I also have three hotwheels ION's, one hotwheel pewter L-series, and one of the VUE/ION blimp/lightship hotwheel. I have a 6 foot Saturn banner out in the garage. Three teddy bears, a fridge magnet of the three door coupe. Two key chains. My favorite pen is a Saturn pen, and several other little things.. My favorite collectable though, is my full size 1996 Saturn SL2.
I'd be interested in seeing the lost foam casting, the plate frames, and the canvas bag, if you don't mind. My email addy is mydnightmyst@ameritech.net
Thanks!!!
