1994 SC2
Dizzy GM's CEO just announced Saturn is HISTORY!!

Wow, it pays to listen to the radio at work. I just heard a story with Rick Wagoner, CEO of GM, announcing that the Saturn division is being killed off, much like what happened to Oldsmobile! :o:
I haven't found a story on the Internet yet, and Wagoner didn't seem to give a whole lot of information as to why GM is suddenly killing a division that has finally started coming out with new products. When asked in the radio interview what would happen with the current Saturns--including the upcoming ION--Wagoner seemed to hint the ION could become a Chevy, the VUE could replace the Pontiac Aztek, and the L-series could become a mid-size car for another division.
Surprising news, to say the least.

Oh, and one more thing: look at the date of this post.

I heard it was an interview with a radio station in Roswell, New Mexico. Or was it in the Bermuda Triangle.

Any way, I know the host was Loch Ness.

that's f-ing weak dude. it's like telling someone their shoelace is untied when it really isn't. i hope you did this on impulse, rather than planning it. if it was planned it sucked.

btw...the ion already is a chevy. it's a freakin' cavalier clone.

Oh come on you didn't think it was a troll when you first read the title? Don't get so p*ssed off over a little joke. And the Ion will be much better than a cadaver.

Probably would have done better to say that the plastic panels are history... oh wait... that might happen. : )

I thought the plan for the next Cavalier to be on the delta platform was scrapped?

Sorry but they said Saturn is becoming a division of Toyota.

Heh, at least the CR ratings will go up!

Dizzy

Though I don't find the joke funny, why not playing with Happy Fool News instead of such furious Sad one.....Saturn is History?!

I'd rather hear something like:

1) Center Pod console will be removed from all Production ION + Coupe as inital reaction from Auto Show is so negative....

2) 4-Wheel Discs will be standards in ION, L and VUE starting at mid-2002, Saturn is so concern about Customer Opinion and Satisfaction....

3) SKY will be in Limited Production by third-quarter this year, starting price: $19,000....

4) '03 L V-6 6-Speed Manual will be offered this Summer....

That's what I called 4/1.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
