2004 VUE Red Line
Dizzy Clueless ION Owner

So I'm driving to work this morning and I spot a silver ION RedLine. I pull next to it at the stop and roll down my window. Following is our conversation:

Me: Nice RedLine.
Him: No, it's a Saturn.
Me: You're right, it is a Saturn, with the RedLine package.
Him: I wouldn't know.
Me: Are you the owner?
Him: Yes.
Me: See Ya.

Now my question is this, who buys a new car without first doing some research?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

maybe this guy was from the planet Pluto, and that could be the reason he was soooooo goofy.

Maybe it was a Saturn dealer driving around? Was it a younger kid?

Are you sure it wasn't a regular ION with some kind of appearance package?

My local retailer stocks several coupes with appearance packages similiar to the RL. About half their couple are pimped out. They look nice except for the ones with side graphics. ugh...

The guy was young so he could be working for a dealer like Jaseball said. He sure was dressed like a salesmen.

On the other hand, the car did look a lot like BlueIonDriver's car only in silver. So I could be the one mistaken and for that I apologize.

I'm thinking kilcher & BlueIonDriver is right and that it probably was an Ion with the appearance package. If the guy was a salesmen he would of known all about the car.

BlueIonDriver, I looked in your gallery and your Ion is very clean, especially lowered. You own one sweet ride.

If I remember I'll snap some today. I have to go by there anyway to get a tech to look at my ill-fitting roof rack. I'm not sure when I'll get them posted, but I'm sure it will be this weekend. Today is my last day at work, and the movers come on Monday! I'm excited.
