You check ebay when you want to replace your 12 year old SL2 with a nice young 2000 SC2.

There was actually another SL2 on to the right, next to my friends neon, but the neon would have screwed it up
Hey thats the Chautauqua lot! Whats up I go to Fred too. Roll a 95 SL1 Gold. My housemate has the same car as me. I'm missing hubcaps on one side though. Whenever I walk back to my SL at the end of the day, in the empty parking lot, I can't help but think how lonely it looks.

You know you drive a Saturn when you have to correct the OnStar advisor who termed your car a SATREN AURORA.

I love that QckSL2 vid, my favorite Saturn video. Ian really knows how to push a little 4-banger to the limits.

You know you drive a Saturn when:

Your car costs less than most car's accessories.

You spend less time at the gas pump and more on the road.

You fear no door ding.

You smile whenever you see a ricer and just smile, knowing...

1. You take some Japanese business guests to dinner in you SC2 - they say "HA! Nice car! Japanese?" and you say "No, it's a Saturn - made in Amaerica!!".

2. Someone runs into you in the parking lot and pushes you 2 feet sideways. Not a scratch - the only damage is a small split in the $26 front wheel fender liner.

3. You now drive a Red Line Turbo SKY and people keep coming up an drooling over it and then you tell them and they go "WOW!!!! that's a Saturn???!!!" (They really do need to advertise more - I do get tired of having to tell people to wipe their drool off my car...... and telling them I really don't have time to give joy rides......)
