1997 SW2
Default S-Series Scrapbook

Here's a simple concept. Find an old historical S-Series or Saturn prototype image on the web or in your possession and place it here for posterity. Advertising or Brochure images, Manual pages etc.

I found this which I had never seen before and I thought it worth sharing.

Great Saturn video!

Thanks to 2NDSOUT

..... a great behind the scenes of Spring Hill and the S-Series back in the day.

If you have 20 minutes of time- some cool shots of the assembly line and various workers commenting on their pride in building the cars.

Video note: There is :15 seconds of Video Black before the video starts.

This is an awesome shot found in a Hemmings article. I would guess that it is from a Saturn brochure.

I had me fooled! Upon closer inspection this was another photoshop dream by an anonymous Saturnfan. Notice the cloned reflection in the rearmost glass matching that of the back door glass.

That Hemmings article has a lot of really high quality photos. I wonder if there are more like them somewhere, they're really nice.

This one might be my favorite of the bunch

A whine back, Charlie posted a Flashback Friday about Saturn ICY Racing.
http://www.saturnfans.com/cars/s-ser...urn-icy-racing

I've recently bought some old Saturn merch from PaulGraz and one of those things was the postcard in that story. Now, the image in that story is tiny, and I can't find a better one anywhere else online, so I thought the internet deserves a better one. I really like it

Now I may have gone 'a little' over the top with the scan at 600 dpi but, go big or go home, or something like that.
