Thumbs Up MTV adds MODS to the ION and VUE

I was downtown Detroit yesterday because I knew MTV was showing the MTV Video Music Award Cars. What I did not know is that they were all Saturns and better yet all Red Lines. Three IONs and 4 VUEs. I took about 100 pics. I only have 7 of them up, but I will be adding more every day. Goto www.AmericanTuner.com and click on the Saturn Logo.

I don't see any mods, just custom wheel/tires and paint or graphics. Only thing they have in common is they are all TACKY!

Good to see someone putting that type an effort into Saturn's at least. I don't know who is going to want them though. Probably give them away free in some contest.

Upon further inspection, I found more spelling errors within different pages. Not very professional if you ask me.

Ill put more images up tonight. Some of the stuff is pretty cool. They have done some body/accent colors on the interior. The Usher Ion has a fish tank in the rear. Its kind of “Pimp my Ride” style, but it is fun to see and good for Saturn.

I just threw the text together. I wasn’t really ready to make the site live (for the public) but, because MTV came to town, I wanted to get the pics up. It isn’t a “professional” website. I just thought I would throw it together for fun.

Ill let you all know when the other pics go up.

Oh, OK. I thought it was a company's website advertising the graphics they did for the Saturns.....sorry. Just thought American Tuner was a new company or something for automotive performance & graphics.

Sorry, didn't mean to jump all over you. Just read your message too quick...

They were typos really. I had/have the UR in forum backwards. It’s a product of being in a hurry at 2:00 in the morning.

I noticed that your site says you put a saab turbo on the Ion. Do you have any pics? How hard was it? Do you have numbers for it?

Sorry for the confusion. Those are Mods I plan to do. Right now the car is bone stock. The sound system is the first to go in, and I am working on that now. I dont know if ill go turbo. I know there is a bolt on supercharger, maybe ill go that route.

Those poor Redlines. The Bam car brought tears to my eyes, it's pitiful.

Why the hell would someone mount a skateboard truck on a shifter anyway?
