F/S 2008 Saturn Sky Redline, $6k rolling chassis
« on: April 09, 2017, 03:28:16 PM »
Pickup only
Price Non-Negotiable

I lost a pin in my timing chain which has basically sidelined my Sky
[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

At this point, I have no desire to spend any time or money troubleshooting what other potential damage this has caused.

As such, this could be a great opportunity for a DIY-er to pickup a sky for cheap and either fix the existing engine or do a swap.

Highlights include
Borg Warner EFR 6758

Norm's Rear Fascia
BC Racing Coilovers
OZ Ultraleggera Staggered wheels
Kenwood Radio

Don't do it. You have too much heart and soul invested not to mention the money. Sleep on it Elff before you do anything rash.

If I was a mod I would accidentally close this. 
Elf, take another look at it tomorrow and if you still want to sell it reevaluate your selling price. It is too cheap and that's makes it easy to be parted out rather than fixed. I could keep the rims tires,  coilovers and turbo and still get most of my money back if i bought it.  I don't want to see that happen and I don't think you do either.
I sold a70 cutlass convertible over 25 years ago that i still regret selling to this day. I think you will feel the same about this after it is too late to change your mind

Elff has been through a bit of shit with this car.   Last time I saw it, it was in really nice shape. If I were nearby I would have to take a long hard look at this purchase. Many good things have been done to this car.

Damn ... speechless.

I would let it sit for a couple of days/weeks and reconsider the decision.

This post makes me sad.  I agree with everyone else....let it ride a bit and reconsider.  If anything on the price.  There are way too many good mods on this car and people like us on the forum who know the car will recognize that.  Granted the engine is a risk, but still.

I have considered it and slept on it and I am selling it.
sorry folks
As people have pointed out, with the mods on this car, even with the non working engine, this is a steal.
Since I am not willing to fix it, I am not willing to part it out either.   Someone else could buy it, do that and make a profit

Oh man I wish I had 6 grand...how bad was the TC failure  (i.e. is it terminal for the engine or did it just jump a degree, etc). Id swap my engine over to that in a heartbeat.

It's always sunny in San Diego. Except during May grey and June gloom.

It is going to a good home.  I was sad the day mine left on a trailer. It was worse the day I saw it again at Nationals and someone had  damaged it. I wonder where it is now....
