Happy Hello From Southern California!

Hi all! My names Luke and I purchased this 1993 Saturn SW1 on thursday of last week for $160! It has a rebuilt engine, new clutch, and 27" All Terrains. It needs a power steering pump, rack and pinion, AC Compressor, and new front shocks. For $160 I'm pretty happy with this little wagon =) Bleh I can't post pictures because this is my first post sad day =(

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Welcome to SaturnFans, LukeGirard! It's nice to have another SoCal member here. What part of SoCal do you call home?

Gov't's grown bigger, but a chance exists that it will be reduced. I'm cautiously hopeful.

I live up in Apple Valley next to Victorville. And actually yes it has 27" all terrains with 1" wheel spacers in the front. It has no front fenders and a bash bar for the front bumper. This is why I wanted to post pictures!

Oh, I get it now! So you have something of a monster S series wagon on your hands. That's got to look a bit wild! Many, many moons ago my parents took me to the Roy Rogers Museum in Victorville. We occasionally travel through that area when on the way to or from Big Bear Lake.

Wow, didn't they close that about 10 years ago and move it to Branson?

Welcome! If I did it again, I'd have bought a wagon instead of my 97 SL (not sure if there were wagons in 97)

...
97 SL. Born 6/5/97, bought 7/7/97
08 Burgman 400
02 Haro MTB- can't kill it, still trying though

The Schofield Kid: Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.
Will Munny: We all got it coming, kid.

Welcome to SaturnFans! I also live in Southern Cali. Currently out in Death Valley. I think this is the furthest west I'll go! There is a wealth of information here to keep your Saturn on the road. I've looked at plenty of old forums to diagnose and fix my minor issues. If you are thinking of asking a question definitely check the forums. It could already be answered. You certainly got your car for a steal! I'm probably forced to do a full GM service on my A/C when I have the time and insanity for it. Death Valley summers are no joke!
