Default Re: The 2012 Virtual Saturn Reunion Starts Now

Hey, everyone. I've been around the forum even tho I traded my last Saturn, the 08 Vue for a Volvo XC60 for my wife. I got a Volvo C30 about a year ago and love it. It reminds me of my past Saturn SC2's, a small sporty "coupe" that is not too bad on gas. Since GM dumped Saturn (and Pontiac), I've not been able to find anything that really interested me in their lineup. I miss the Vue--it was the most troublefree vehicle I've ever owned--100,000 miles with no repairs other than routine maintence; it still had the original brake pads. The only major expense was 4 tires at 55,000 miles. I'm still working the same job as a pharmacist for a major chain (16 years) and even tho I'm approaching medicare age, I don't plan on retirement for quite some time(I can't afford to). My wife still tries to run her small antique and collectable business--she rents a booth in a local mall; but we are not doing very well right now--business is very slow.The economy has really taken a toll on the antique business. We had to close out of 2 malls--they closed down. So we are down from 3 to 1 right now. If that doesn't pick up soon, we may be out of the business altogether. Other than that, we are doing ok. I certianly hope that other old regulars will post so we can see whats going on in their lives. I really miss many of the old members.
