1997 SC2
Dizzy Hey Everybody!

Hi, I'm Keith. My girl friends Saturn SC2 just blew up, some of you may know as she is on this board too. She had a listing looking to buy a car or a trans from someone.

She wound up buying a new car, a 2000 New Beetle TDi 5spd. Awesome car, great mileage, around 50mpg on highway and 30+ in the city, heated leather seats...the works. Got it at a great price.

Well I have been talking to her and I think I am going to rebuild her old Saturn, except this time I think it's getting gutted, putting in a roll cage, a new 5spd with a Quaife ATB LSD, and a decent clutch. I'm thinking Agility Coil overs and a nice set of racing wheels and sticky tires for autocross/road coarse, and possibly another set for rally cross.

This of coarse is going to be an over time project as I would like to race the car somewhat stock first to, A) save some money for the build, and B) see how the car improves with each mod.

So I may have some interior parts up for sale soon, depending on if I get the OK from the gf or not to gut her old car...haha

Look forward to meeting more of you.

1997 SC2
Default Re: Hey Everybody!

thanks for the link and the leads, that looks like an awesome page. I have been filtering through it for the last 15-20 min and I already feel like my head is going to explode with excitement!!!

Hopefully I can scrape some money together parting it out and over the summer working, race it stock for the summer and then over the winter have some fun. We'll see how it goes. Original time lines never work out...
