I was going to post a while ago about this, but forgot. Today during my english work, I remembered.
A week or so ago we had to write an essay about something we praised, the style is called an encomium. As soon as I saw the assignment, I knew what I'd write about. My friends thought I was crazy, but it turned out well. The professor even commented that her son had a Saturn, a 1993, and said he loved it until he totaled it a few years after buying it new back in 1993. So, if you like reading, here it is. I dislike writing but when it is about something I am passionate about, I can write for hours.

Really nice story! I remember last year in English we had to write a paper about key events throughout your high school life and the Saturn got a good little chunk of that
Totaling the car is always my biggest worry about my Saturn. These little cars have proven to be pretty bullet proof mechanically and can even take a decent beating and still come out with only minor damage. (Mine would know) No matter how well I take care of it, and how much I try to keep rust from eating it away, I could loose it all in a second. Yeah, I could get another Saturn (and I defiantly would), but it just wouldn't be the same. obviously I don't think about that constantly but its been with me my whole life, so its got a just little bit more sentimental value to me than it's cash value. This Saturn plus these forms have thought me almost everything I know about cars. So I know that if I ever have to retire mine some day for whatever reason, I'll be able to keep it alive like you have with your 94.
