Default If Jay Leno Adds A Saturn to His Collection?

If Jay Leno Adds A Saturn to His Collection?...
Which Saturn would he have to add in your opinion?...

Jay Leno has a lot of cars in his very varied collection. As far as I know he doesn't have a single Saturn. If you haven't seen an episode of Jay Leno's Garage on CNBC or any of his YouTube offerings then you are missing out. He's truly interested in automotive history as well as other aspects of automobilia. After hosting the Tonight Show for years and being a top performing stand up comedian, he's turned his accumulated money into his love for cars with his own personal automobile collection/museum and he has the forethought to share it with the rest of the world.

So if he was forced to put a Saturn in his collection, which one Saturn would it be? ...and why?

Probably a first-year SC - he usually has the weird quirky stuff and that fits the bill for sure.

My guess would be a Sky Redline with the dealer optioned turbo upgrade.

My guess would be the “One of none” yellow Sc1 that was a competitive turbocharged racer.
That had to be online close to 15 years ago. Wonder what happened to that car?

I was thinking more like one of the Saturns that GM sold at auction a few years back to clean out their storage. The one millionth Saturn, The two millionth Saturn, etc. I'm pretty sure these went for cheap.

Default Re: If Jay Leno Adds A Saturn to His Collection?

I don't think Leno would go for a Saturn, but it would make sense to get an S-Series... then, if he was going for something rare, he might get a 2002 SW2 wagon or an SC2 for style, either in manual, of course.

A non-Saturn purist would just get the Saturn Sky Redline, but he might already have a Pontiac Solstice.

^^^^Interesting. That looks like an odd section of random images but for now we can assume he has a Gen2 SL2 in white. Nice to know that Saturn is on his radar.

Default Re: If Jay Leno Adds A Saturn to His Collection?

This list of his collection seems accurate to April of this year. I didn't see any Saturn's on it, but it does say he frequently buys/sells cars from the collection so it's plausible there used to be a Saturn on it.

1995 SL1
Default Re: If Jay Leno Adds A Saturn to His Collection?

I think a teal colored 1995 SL1 with a lot of miles would be a good piece for him to have.

I'd even offer it as a trade for something else from his collection.

Default Re: If Jay Leno Adds A Saturn to His Collection?

Big mistake was to not consider the value of the car. Why use up any sort of valuable floor space to even store one car that has virtually zero value in today's market. A few more years need to pass and Jay would have to come across one with some historical value. Right now there are still too many around.
