1996 SW2
Default Re: Bonehead Saturn Craigslist find of the day

^^^^^ Franken-car, probably cobbled from the donor in the background. Gray interior, tan carpet, late-gen alloys as mentioned. No 'splainin' why both cars have black bumpers, though....

Oh looky - http://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/cto/4057016555.html - dude's also selling a gen-3 SL1 as an SL2; no charge for the ill-fitting front bumper and missing badge.

Rear car has a spoiler too. 98-99 SL2 behind would explain the wheels but with black bumpers? Maybe the body color bumpers had been replaced? From a 3rd donor? Is that villagers with pitchforks and torches in the distance?

Default Re: Bonehead Saturn Craigslist find of the day

Freeway miles? - Next time I consider a car with 'highway' miles or 'freeway' miles I will ask for paystubs from where the seller was employed and proof of seller's residence going back through the history of the car and then I will google map the routes to see if and what amount of 'highway' miles the car might actually have on it.

...

The "highway" or "freeway" miles CL lie is so common I don't even notice it any more. You'd think no one ever used their car to drive in the city...

If you see an Equinox and a Solstice on the same day, the end of the world is near....

So if a Libra driving an Aries gets in a crash with a Pisces driving a Scorpio, what happens if the cops show up in a Taurus?

I mentioned this line to my gf as she is a Libra and we have an Aries as a back-up car......Her answer, "It's 1988." We haven't seen a running Scorpio since then I guess....
