Dizzy Gave up on the Turbo - Bought a Redline ION

I started the process of buying the Turbo on March 24th 2005. Well, to make it a short story, the car still does not run right and the Company that sold the Turbo NOW admits that they have only sold 4 and would not give me a name so I could find out what needs to be done.

Last Saturday my patience ran out and I told them to put the car back to its normal stage and refund my money.

The company that has been trying to make it work is now restoring the car and I should have it by Thursday.

So today, I bought the last 2005 RED Line ION that we had in inventory. It has the competition package, side airbags, fog lights, XM Radio, AM/FM/CD/MP3 with advanced audio, sunroof and it is RED.

Now to make it a Clapsaddle by improving it

I had a 2000 Z28 that I traded in on a 2003 Saturn VUE 4 CYL VTI and am thinking about getting back into the thrill Zone. Haven't test drived the 6CYL VUE yet. Hows the redline version? Thanks...

So how many new Clapdaddy Saturns is this now?

I am very happy with the proffessionalism and patience that you have shown with many months of grief and agony that this modification has been. I want to buy my next Saturn from you. By the way, where is your old ION3 going?

You will LOOK and feel like a new man in that Redline. Thanks for the update. And enjoy the new ride.

Congratulations!!!

As another Redline owner, I'm sure you're going to love the new ride, especially the upper end of 2nd gear. Just be careful with that "arrest me red" car. It's hard to drive it slow.

I was trying to Turbo my 2003 ION 3 QC. It started in March 2005 and we finally called an end to it last Saturday.

I can't go into any details YET as there may be legal action that I will have to take to get my money and car back in its original "mode".

Andy,

The Turbo was from a company in CA. Can't go into details yet because I may have to go "legal" to get my car and money back.

Nice seeing you the other day.

Depending on what happens with the restore, it may be sent to auction. I don't believe this will happen though. Give me a call at work in a week and I will have more details then.

Thanks for the kind words!!!!
