A new story entry has been added:

Confirmed: GM Plans to Sell Saturn

Quote:
In a news brief today, GM confirmed that there a several buyers interested in purchasing Saturn. While no specific names were mentioned, the company anticipates a sale to be made by the end of the year. The company advising the sale of the brand is S.J. Girsky & Co. Speculations abound as to which parties are interested in purchasing the brand. Last month, Black Oak Partners, based in Oklahoma City, confirmed it's interest in purchasing the brand. Rumors speculate throughout the media that the company is also looking for potential buyers in foreign markets such as China and India. Both countries are eager to gain market share in the United Sates.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Question Re: Confirmed: GM Plans to Sell Saturn

Okay...

Hold the phone. Charlie has always been the moderator here...there has never been any "Super Moderator". How is it possible for someone with "Zero Posts" to be a "Super Moderator"

Charlie...has Saturnfans been hi-jacked?

And on the forum page; it says the thread has been posted by "Anonymous"

What gives?

Not to mention someone joined on the date of AUGUST 2000.. oh well, at least it's better than the phpBB initial date (somewhere in 1969 IIRC.)

Yep, that's my better half. She's been helping me out "behind the scenes" for awhile now, and recently expressed interest in researching and posting news stories on the front page. To say I was impressed is an understatement! I think she did a great job!

I'm a lucky guy.

That you are Charlie! What more could you ask for, a wife that enjoys a major interest you do and helps out time to time and a couple of Saturns, a Vue Red Line and an Outlook in the driveway. Life is good! Now you just need to add a Sky to that mix.
