Owner Stories: Having Fun with My 1998 SC2

Well I walked in to my local used car lot and asked the salesman for a car that was sporty, got good gas mileage, and was front wheel drive because I needed something better to drive in the snow than my Camaro Z28). He showed me a variety of imports, and I test drove a few of them including an Eclipse Spyder, Jetta, and Civic to name a few. They were all overpriced and had poor performance.

We then came across a black '98 SC-2 with 30,000 miles. I had never driven a Saturn or heard much about them, so I figured I would take it for test drive. To my amazement it was by far the fastest, best handling car that I had looked at so far, and the price was wasn't to bad either. I was hooked.

I ended up buying the car and putting it through it's paces the first day (nothing like a little back mountain road racing to test out a new car). The car handled exceptionally well. More than 100,000 miles later its still running strong! I eventually want to put some upgrades on it, but for now I'm having plenty of fun with it.

Two Saturn Astras Spotted on the "Transformers 2" Set at Princeton University

Admittedly, I wasn't a big fan of the Transformers afternoon cartoon series or the popular action figures as a kid. In the 1980s I was more interested watching KITT pull high-tech stunts on NBC's Knight Rider.  That's all changing now with the making of Michael Bay's sequel to the 2007 blockbuster "Transformers" movie. Why? It looks like the Saturn Astra will have a starring role in the film.
