Ow! You're as cold as that snowbank! Rigor has barely set in and you want to cut him up already. :o:


Anybody know if 92's use the same injectors as 91's?

Either that or "this is a warning".

Capone, looks like it's time to change that sig. Glad you're OK though!

Glad you're OK.
I STILL can't prove to my bf that saturns are safer than many cars out there. GR. This is proof enough for me.

...hate to ask this, but I love your steering wheel cover.
If you're not going to transplant that into a new car, i'd love to get it from you.

I would definantly look into transplanting your old parts then part the car out on ebay if you have the time you would probably not take to big a hit.

Your insurance rates will go up but don't sweat it drive safe and sane and they will go back down.

If studded tires are leagle there think about a set on all four for next winter they are noisy but really save your butt in the ice.

I just had an 'experience' where I lost traction on a turn going about 20 mph on some new snow, and slid into a mound of snow which had been there for a while, making it nice and icy and hard.

I felt the car hit the thing and bounce off so I was expecting to get out and find another cracked panel. To my suprise, there was nothing damaged at all! All is cool. I'm so glad my car isn't metal.

I did something fairly similar, but on ice and straight into a guardrail.



Glad you're alright capone and that your spirits don't seem too much worse for wear. When are you getting a new Saturn?

Newbie, this thread is over one year old. I seriously doubt he still has the car.
