Re: Bonehead Saturn Craigslist find of the day

Hey that was me! I'm actually betting that they are two different Classics. The CL ad doesn't show the red pin striping, and there are certain window stickers that are different between the two. The...

Re: WANTED: Someone to Change Automatic Transmission

Very likely. But you've already got a new transmission, so it's up to you how far you want to go for this repair.

FWIW, a rebuilt valve body costs less than $200 and can be easily changed out in...

Re: Adios, Saturnfans!

It's possible... If I ever find a low-mileage, clean 96 5-speed SC2 (especially a Classic) or a 5-speed SW2, I might have a hard time resisting parting with my cash. But for now, no more room in the...

Re: Adios, Saturnfans!

Yeah, we're kind of Ford fans, but not die-hard by any means. Personally, I will own, drive, and respect any "good" car, no matter what make it is. But both of our families have primarily owned Fords...

Adios, Saturnfans!

As of yesterday, we are no longer Saturn owners. I sold mine in June, and the wife just sold hers. I didn't have much of an attachment to mine, but I know I'll miss her SC2. It gave us 40 months and...

Re: Junkyards in Rochester, MN or Madison, WI area?

Not sure how far you're willing to go out of your way, but this place seems to have quite a few Saturns, over 100. Here's a thread on it:

Re: Most reliable SL2? My story

Fail.



Didn't know open fields, ditches, telephone poles, and trees were considered lanes.



If your car, experience, and weather conditions allow this, fine. Obviously none those...

Re: white face gauge not glow stock layover

Ahh I gotcha, this pic works though, and yeah those were the ones I was thinking of. I'll ask the wife if she's interested and get back to you.

(BTW, wow you've got a lot going on in there!)

Re: Most reliable SL2? My story

Where do you live?

Remind me never to go there, ever.

If you cannot drive at the proper speed limit, or at least close to it, ESPECIALLY if you are driving on worn suspension components that...

Re: Bonehead Saturn Craigslist find of the day

I can't possibly understand how a car can a "one-owner" for 244k miles yet the owner doesn't know what model they have or how many damn cylinders are in the car. But I see a lot of that kind of...

Re: Couple rare Saturns for ya

If I found one for sale (and worth buying), I'd love to have one, even with no real use for it. The first gen SC2's are my favorite body style, and I much prefer the gen-2 interior over gen-1. I...

Re: Couple rare Saturns for ya

Could be, since it's actually being used as a postal wagon. It looked pretty clean and well taken care of as well. This was in Appleton, WI, if that helps. I haven't seen the wheel covers it had...

Re: Couple rare Saturns for ya

Yep, the wagon is the easy one, it's an SWP. The thing I liked about it is that it was used for it's intended purpose! (Look at the lettering on the back window).

You guys are correctly naming the...

Couple rare Saturns for ya

I've had these pics sitting on my phone for a while, finally decided to share 'em. Funny thing is that I found both of them at malls, but two different ones. First one to know what each of these wins...

Re: Unrequited love for an SC2: Should I buy it?

Fixed. Seriously, to replace the VB you just need to remove the battery and its box and undo/redo a few easy-to-reach bolts. About a half hour job, even for a first timer.

Re: 01' SOHC a few ponies short.

I had a few 40 mpg fill-ups.

To be fair, I always felt that the SL1 had enough...

Re: 01' SOHC a few ponies short.

It's funny, none of you mention driving an SOHC with the autotragic. Now that was fun stuff. Sometimes I'd purposely turn A/C on in summer just to see how slooowwly I could get up to free-way merging...
