New 2008 Sky Redline owner in central VA
« on: November 29, 2010, 09:37:34 PM »
Hi all,

This past Thanksgiving weekend I made good on a promise to myself and purchased my Saturn Sky Redline!  I've been in love with these cars since I saw the first (achingly beautiful) one on the road.  But due to the practical requirements of family life (3 boys), I've owned and driven three successive minivans.  Well, I finally feel like I've escaped the curse.

I did own a 1995 Saturn SW2 back in the day and really loved it.  My wife loved it too, and so she had a very positive opinion of Saturn from the start (big plus!)  And the boys?  Well, my 11-year-old jumped around like a kangaroo when he saw it, and my 15-year-old mysteriously missed the school bus this morning so I'd have to drop him off at school...hmmm.  He's studying for his learner's permit right now; I told him he'd better score pretty high if he ever plans to...actually, let's not think about that right now.

Here are the obligatory photos:

Congrats!

Looks familiar:



Picked mine up a week ago last Sunday, and am only 100 miles from you.

I've got 600 miles on it so far. Great car!

Welcome to the group. Although, I am out of country and in a very frozen place, -15 to -20C, the cars still look HOT!! I am anxiously awaiting the time when I can drive my Solstice again.

Welcome to the forum!  And welcome to the Kappa crazy bunch. We love our cars and love to get together to talk and work on them.  Sounds like you will fit right in!
I'm very intelligent, but I mask it by doing stupid stuff.
