Back in a saturn

Hello from northern Michigan.

I used to own a saturn vue and missed it. I finally got ahold of a pretty decent sl1. Just to have handy for when the truck needed to go into the shop. Now I'm working in fixing her up. Mostly cosmetic issues but a few rust issues as well. But looking forward to the gas mileage she's going to bring me lol

1996 Saturn SL1 5-speed :)

Picking up replacement seats, visors & headliner and carpet next week off a guy who has a lot of love for saturns lol. Has three just for parts lol

You could ask Amy23army if she's a troll* :D

My guess is UP - many (but not all) refer to the UP as "northern MI," and the troll parts as "northern lower MI" (or "up north" ) - ymmv :D

[QUOTE]If you know where the "yoopers" and the "trolls" live, there’s a very good chance that you’re from Michigan.

On this week’s edition of That’s What They Say, host Rina Miller and University of Michigan English Professor Anne Curzan discuss some vocabulary that is unique to the state of Michigan.

Since its recent addition to the Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary, yooper, a term referring to people from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, has gotten a lot of attention. However, there are plenty of other fun Michigan words that are not making headlines.

While yooper refers to residents of the Upper Peninsula, those that live[B] south of the Mackinac Bridge [/B]may be lightheartedly referred to as trolls since they are “under the bridge.”[/QUOTE]
