Re: What Did You Put In Your S-Series Wagon, Sedan or Coupe Today?

Ford Cologne V4. Cut a piece of 3/4 plywood following the carpet pattern, painted it with some nasty contrasting colors of old paint I had lying around, bolted in some dock cleats with T-nuts, got...

Re: Power Steering elimination

I just deleted the PS and A/C on my 98 SW2 last weekend. I removed the PS pump and cut the lines, leaving enough to 'loop' the lines to the power steering rack and connecting them together with a...

Re: row 52 finds

Just about anything would work, though darker is preferred. Not a top priority, just interested in getting some at a local JY.

Best of luck with the floor mats. NOS mats are pretty much gone,...

Re: row 52 finds

Nope, the VIN won't tell... but thanks for the heads-up on the interiors. It would be nice if they had interior and engine compartment shots as well. I'm just going to have to start visiting these...

Re: row 52 finds

Any leather interiors? Gotta check that place out.

Re: Who bought an AMR front strut brace in the Group Buy of 2012?

Too late to edit last post.

I just cut a bevel on the PS cap to allow additional clearance on the SOHC. A coarse stone on a bench grinder yields a nice finish with no melting. If you run into a...

Re: Who bought an AMR front strut brace in the Group Buy of 2012?

OK, I just put a brace on the SOHC this morning to see if it will fit. I needed to put a 2mm thick washer between the brace and the strut tower, under the bolt hole nearest the firewall, in order to...

An update

I received two new strut tower braces. The fit is now perfect on the twin cam with plenty of clearance around the PS reservoir. It looks really good and the fit and finish are first rate.

I also...

Same here. UPS says "Severe weather conditions have delayed delivery." I'll report on fitment, etc when it arrives.

Re: It's a Saturn Homecoming!

KingRex: Just wanted to extend my congratulations. You are doing the right thing. These cars really deserve to be collected and preserved (and driven!).

Yeah, I'm a bit jealous too!

Yep, got the same call and noted it in the original thread. Let's hope they're good to their word.

Re: Group Buy: AMR front strut tower brace

I found the same message on my office phone this morning. Hopefully they will ship soon and everyone will get what they need.

I'll post again when the thing arrives.

Re: Bonehead Saturn Craigslist find of the day

... not to mention the owner's cooling system "repair". Looks like this car hasn't seen any attention under the hood in years.

The bar as shipped is a total non-starter for the SOHC from a fit standpoint. Not a problem in my case, but a test fit showed it absolutely wouldn't work without...

Re: budget Nos and Qs

Even at $1500 that is a very inexpensive (and respectable IMO) build.

I'll mirror what anmasher said, anything done on a $500 budget will likely turn into a huge disappointment.

That is just...

Re: S series production data

I think it's an error in the data. The Wikipedia article on the Saturn S series shows 62,434 total SCx that year. But note that the Wikipedia article doesn't have any production numbers for some of...

Re: It's time for a national Saturn Club

A few thoughts and my opinions:

1. I really like the ideas in this thread.

2. I think establishing the club as a nonprofit would be the first priority. We probably have a number of attorneys...
