1997 SL2
Default Traded in Saturn in 2007. Spotted today 11 years later. PICS

In 2007 I traded in my 2002 SL1 with about 45,000 miles on the odometer.
In the previous years I had the rockers and mirrors painted to match, added SL2 spoiler, tinted the Windows, added 16" Motegi wheels, lowering springs, etc....
Before I traded it in I removed the lowering springs, clear corner lights, smoked taillights, and clear headlights. The wheels stayed on.

I haven't seen it since that day when I traded it in over 11 years ago.........until today!

It's now sitting at a dealers only auto auction with 188,000 miles on the odometer. It still has two 16" wheels on the front, but is wearing 15" factory alloys on back. It has "alot" of battle scars and every side is scraped up good. The drivers mirror is now mismatched and was replaced at some point. Interior is thrashed. I started it up and the engine idles rough with a SES light.

The tint has held up well and the paint on the rockers held up surprisingly well..

Kinda sad to see it like this but...it's served it's purpose and has a little life left in it.

It was lookin' good in 2007.
Shame the new owners did not keep it in good shape.

I've run across guys I sold cars to years later.

Nice to hear them say good things about the car. One kid sold the car after he hit around 240k miles due to the miles, said he regretted it as it was still running well and was the best car he had owned (he'd bought two cars after, neither was as reliable)

Another guy, sold my car to him around 1999~2000. Ended up working in the same building with him He was still driving that car when he retired a couple of years ago, around 2016 or so.

...
I'm not worthy to grovel in the shadow of Signmaster's wisdom

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
