Thanks...and Bye

  1. My '94 SL2 is no more.

    After 167,000 mostly trouble-free miles (and no end in sight), a fellow
    decided to see how his truck would look in my trunk.

    Lots o' damage.

    I've enjoyed this forum immensely...the help, the opinions.

    I expect I'll be a Saturn owner again someday. As much as I know it's silly
    to become attached to 2000 pound hunks of plastic and steel, I loved this
    little car.

    In particular, I'd like to thank Bandit, Marx404, Napalm and Blah Blah for
    their troubleshooting assistance over the years.

    Saturns are awesome! Y'all are, too.

    That's too bad. Hopefully you weren't hurt, and if you were,
    hope you heal quickly and completely.

    Considering replacing it with another Saturn?

    How about you? Any damage or are you ok?

    Sorry to hear about your car. I've greatly enjoyed my 1998 SW2. I always
    give Saturn the first look when I'm shopping for another car, but they
    sure don't make cars like they used to.
    How is the old burg? I haven't been back in years.

    ouch >.<
    Why thank ya. Its nice having people like you come in here that actually
    ask for help and not use it as a stomping ground to bitch and rant about
    trivial things. This group could use more people like you!

  5. ....I still miss my 97SL2 - the car, history and of course the ng are unique
    (to me). Best of luck on the new car/truck/suv (they can be fun too)...

    As others have said, I hope the only damage was to metal and plastic
    and not flesh and bone.

    Thanks for mentioning me. I'm no longer driving a Saturn much, but I
    still work on one, as the car is now our son's!

    Best Wishes,

  7. Well, since you asked...

    every day I take my 5-year old in to Kindergarten on the way to work. It's
    20 minutes of good daddy-daughter time...laughing and singing and telling
    stories. Last Wednesday she was sick...stayed home. Last Wednesday the car
    was totaled. And it was HER corner of the car that got squashed. Can't
    convince me there aren't angels.

    No real damage to me. A bit sore for a couple days, but that passed

    Neglected to mention Johnny Santos on my thanks list. Johnny, you helped
    troubleshoot my plugged sunroof drains some years ago, I believe.

    Y'all be good.

    Thanks and sorry if we lose you. Well, the good news is that if you were in
    anything but a Saturn, would you be wearing the truck instead of your trusty
    old Saturn? ;-)
    Ditto for me and a flying tire on I95.

    I know what you mean about being passionate about a hunk of plastic & metal,
    and maybe it's a "guy thing" (as my wife who loves her '93 SL1 says) but how
    can you not love a car that treats you so well for so long, then protects
    you from "outside elements", like flying tires, drunk drivers, disctracted
    cell-phone conversationalists, stop-sign runners and the inept,
    overcompensating SUV driver? (VUE's not included, lol.)

    As many Saturns as there are out there, used and new I bet you will again
    find a new one to fall in love with. Best of luck and keep in touch!
