Default General Motors to Auction Near-Classics from Corporate Museum

A new feeditems entry has been added:

General Motors to Auction Near-Classics from Corporate Museum

Quote:
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.

This is a shame but I suppose its better than closing the museum and divesting the entire collection. Hopefully some of these vehicles will end up in other museums and places where they can be both preserved and seen by interested people in the future.

Looks like the second s series made is going up for sale. It'll be a shame if some moron buys it and drives it everyday just for the fact it's good on gas.

Most of them probably get started every so often, because the cars on display are rotated periodically.

Exactly, but it's not that bad in comparison to all of the other cars they sold off. What do you think Corvette enthusiasts have to say? There's only 8 Saturns here.. It sucks but it could be worse.

GM sold off more than just these 8 Saturn vehicles. They sold off over 250 vehicles from their museum; more than 30 of which were Corvettes.

Hopefully they got more for the rest than they got from the Saturns. They might have gotten enough from the Saturns to fund operations for another 15 minutes or so.

Do you honestly think that they sold the cars from the collection for the sole purpose of raising money?

No, but it's good PR, isn't it? "Look how hard we're trying to conserve money! C'mon, give us our bailout!"

I didn't see the Fiero Goodwrench (Huffaker) race car in the auction results. I suppose that means I still have a one-in-a-million chance of owning it someday. (sigh)

Somebody got a '63 Porsche 356B for $17,050. That's a bargain IMHO.

'95 SL1 auto (RIP)
'98 SL2 5sp (RIP)
'01 SL2 auto (RIP)
'99 SC1 auto (Mom's...keeps on truckin')

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

No. This auction isn't the first that they have been selling off cars from the heritage center collection. They have been getting rid of their newer models for a few years now.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Idea Re: General Motors to Auction Near-Classics from Corporate Museum

aint it a shame? too bad the corvette "mako" or the highly sought after Corvette Gran Gport isn't on that list.
What would be nice if someone could find out the engine build on that 1.9 Saturn motor the used in the lola race car. with that information I'm sure a few of us would be able to build some sweet ass kicking cars. OOOOOhhh imagine the possibilities.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
