Only 59399 miles, it looks like someone swapped every single panel on a red car with white panels, cadillac white, by the looks of it. I like the way it looks, but it seems to have been involved in a minor accident. Frame damage seems minimal if any, I personally would have fixed it.

This SC2 has a donut on the back. Could it have been scrapped over a tire?

This SL2 has a hole in the fender, and rear bumper cover, do insurance companies care about this?

This SL2 has had its subframe dropped, and its automatic transmission removed, I hope that it is working.

This SL1 was a beater, duck tape marks, loose headlight, cracked panels, broken window, it was likely driven until it died.

Note: If you are trying to get the rear/central dome light, try taking it off of a 1st gen. They all fit all years, look the same, same plug, same clips, but the ones on 1st gens are less brittle, and mounted directly to the roof panel.

This SL2 has had the DF rim replaced, likely causing wear to the differential. The front bumper cover has taken damage, as have some of the other exterior panels.

I visited LKQ denver on friday, there were many saturns there.
This SL1 has no visable damage, but the rear window was removed.
