Too bad they stopped. Evidently, you used to be able to take broken polymer S-Series body panels to your Saturn dealer, and they would recycle them according to their material (different panels are different materials, BTW). I tried that in fall of '06, and they couldn't do it. Natural outcome of a discontinued model, I guess.

Tee-hee. 'Course, even though it's not "impervious", it's a far superior design wrt rust prevention.

Charlie, let me repeat what others have said, what a delight it is to check out "Flashback Friday" every week.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
