Default Re: Save a Saturn from Sinking! Who's with me?

They did it again this year ... Using the same orange Saturn. I was reminded when I saw the purple covered spot & shot.

I don't seem to mind it that much this year because it's becoming a bit of a Timex ad for old Saturns.

At least they are using the same car over again rather than destroying a perfectly good one.

If you take an average, it will occur on the 28th of March, just before midnight. Except, you would expect it to occur during the warm part of the day, so March 29 at 2:30 PM.
