Goodbye Saturn, Thanks for the Ride (1985-2010)

Vintage Saturn Photos

Note: As General Motors gets ready to shut Saturn's doors at the end of this year, I'd like to take a moment to look back at why the brand was created and how it evolved over the years, what made the cars and company so special to me, and also address some concerns about how Saturn's closure will impact the future of SaturnFans.com.

Later tonight the giant ball in Times Square will be lowered when the clock strikes twelve and 2010 will come to an end. It's been a emotional year for Saturn employees, owners, and fans; October 31st marked the end of General Motors' grand Saturn experiment. Of all the news articles I've written for SaturnFans.com over the past 15 years, this one has been by far the hardest for me to write. Saying goodbye is never easy, and this time is no different. To me Saturn was more than just another car or company: it represented a fresh approach to running a business, and more significantly, it was a symbolic entry in America's ideological battle against the best vehicles the "import" car companies had to offer.

SaturnFans.com Wishes You a Merry Christmas!

Santa in His Saturn SC2

I hope "Saturn Claus" was good to everyone this year! The holiday greeting above was sent to me many, many years ago from a Saturn Car Club in Texas. Yes, Santa really was a Saturn fan! Did you know he had a specially modified white SC2 "sled" he used when he was afraid of getting dents and dings in his other big red sled...

Have a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season!

Follow GMbeat's Coverage of the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show

Many years ago this time of year was always an exciting time to be a Saturn fan. While Saturn cars generally tended to be more practical in nature, the company would pull back the curtain a bit and show off its wild side in Las Vegas at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. Saturn's show cars never disappointed, and owners sought out aftermarket suppliers for parts that would make their cars go faster, handle better, and look more aggressive.

Saturn News Alerts From GMbeat.com

I used to spend hours researching, writing, and posting stories about Saturn at SaturnFans.com. Since Saturn's untimely closing, Saturn-related news stories are few and far between, but every so often Saturn is still referenced in a news article. As a result, I've built a feed that funnels Saturn stories from my GM Beat Saturn channel, directly into the General Saturn Discussion forum. If any of the articles are of particular interest, such as a recall alert, I'll be sure to also post them right here on the main SaturnFans home page too.

Thank You for Participating in SaturnFans.com's 2012 Saturn Reunion, Should We Do this Again Sometime?

For the past 24 hours we've spent some time looking back at what made Saturn, well Saturn. I had fun posting articles throughout the day, although to be honest, some were pre-loaded into the SaturnFans.com CMS last night and auto-published while I was at work. Thankfully, everything seemed to go off without a hitch and I picked up where I left off when I got home tonight. I really enjoyed this trip down memory lane. It was great to have an opportunity to catch up with everybody in the forums, in the chat room, and on email.
