Back Behind the Wheel of Again


I hope you had a nice (and filling) Thanksgiving holiday. It's been awhile since the last update on the front page, but it was for a good reason. My wife and a took a little vacation with family, and then I managed to come down with a bad cold during our drive back home somewhere along I-95 in South Carolina. The good news is that I was "germ free" during the whole trip (my Dad and nephew weren't so lucky), but it was rough coming home and trying to get back into our normal routine with a sore throat, congestion, and a pounding headache.

While we were away, I was able to keep up with forum posts and some e-mail remotely, but I really didn't have the time or energy to post new news stories. That's all changed now that we're home and I'm finally out of bed and feeling better.

I've got a backlog of Saturn news, photos, and owner stories to post (including one of my own, as our Outlook's odometer blew past the 15,000 mile mark during the trip). In addition, this week you'll see some small changes around the site, some of which you might have even noticed already. The more significant ones will be pointed out as they're rolled out. Also, look for the "Top 100 Saturns" contest to finally kick off (with any luck) tomorrow night. Finally, if you sent me an e-mail and haven't heard back from me yet, don't worry... I'm working on clearing out my mailbox. Feel free to send me a follow-up message if it's urgent. As always, thanks for your patience and support!

Vue Green Line's Value Comes from its Thrift

From the Orlando Sentinel: Let's get this out of the way first: Yes, the sensible, comparatively simple Saturn Vue Green Line is a hybrid, but it does not get the astronomical fuel economy that Toyota Prius drivers crow about. But those of us who don't much care for the Prius' driving characteristics might be willing to sacrifice mileage for some of the Vue Green Line's other attributes, such as interior room and luggage capacity.
