Default Good thing it' s legal

Our collection went up by two this month.

A 92 SC2 - we towed home - for parts.

And yesterday - I drove home a 2001 SC2, manual - in yellow. I live on the west side of Michigan - and the previous owner who lives in Flint - met us in Lansing. ( my SO rode with me, and drove back our 99 SC2.)

My inspection mirror revealed what appears to be a very solid underbody. I' ll get it on the lift in the next day or so.

It drove very well - very quiet - but with one loud low speed clunk on the passenger's side that' s suspension. I suspect a broken strut spring. No engine codes - no smoke - very smooth running.

Some external cosmetic issues. It' ll need a new front passenger side fender, hood and windshield, plus's a driver's side mirror.

$750.

And - it smelled like a bong inside. Good thing Michigan legalized recreational weed. I would have hated trying to explain it to a cop, if I got pulled over..

I suspect that might have had something to do with why the kid sold it. The goofy ******* forgot his digital dope scale in the passenger' s seat back pouch. I think the cops had the number of the kid in the canary yellow Saturn, and the kid got sick of getting pulled over.

Just a guess.

It could be he maneuvered in a failed attempt to avoid a skunk and hit a deep pothole in the process. Try spraying Fabreze™ on the undercarriage and post the results.

That reminds me, I need to pull up the rear seat bottom cushion one day to see what is under there

Well - this is a first for me...


This car is the 21st Saturn we have bought - and it's the FIRST that does NOT have undercoating -- or anything other than surface rust.


THIS is the one I' m going to make into a show car....


I' m one happy camper!

So, 9 Saturns, not counting parts cars? Have you got a business or mental issues?! lol

Incidentally, it looks like you're missing a 94, 95, 98, and 00. So what's the plan?

Funny part - when I collected Harleys, nobody blinked.

The Saturns cost a lot less, and I enjoy them just as much....
