Dates for SaturnFest 2009 Announced, Virtual Time Machine Repaired

SaturnFest 2009

Mark your calendars! The gates to SaturnFans.com's virtual homecoming celebration - SaturnFest 2009 - will open on Monday, October 26th and will run through Friday, October 30th. Opening ceremonies will begin at 7 o'clock Monday morning and will set the stage for what promises to be a week of fun filled festivities that you won't want to miss! Saturn fans from around the world will join together to interact, share experiences, and learn about Saturn.

New things to do will be posted everyday!

In addition to the activities previously unveiled, I'm happy to announce the return of the virtual "time machine." The SaturnFans.com Time Machine had fallen into disrepair in the years since the last SaturnFest celebration, but its been repaired, retooled, and refreshed for this year's online homecoming. But that's not all! I'm still working on a few more Saturn-themed activities for the event.

Stay tuned for the next SaturnFest update with more details of the planned event. Keep up-to-date with the latest SaturnFest teasers, as well as the most recent Saturn news, reviews, and rumors by following SaturnFans on Twitter or by signing up to have the latest SaturnFans news updates delivered each morning directly in your mailbox. I hope to see you there!

Virtual Polymer Body-Side Panel Demonstration

SaturnFest 2009

Over the years, one of Saturn's most impressive features was their innovative plastic polymer body panels that it used to cloth it's cars in. The panels resisted damage from small dents, dings, and minor bumps — they proved to be very popular among Saturn owners. The panels simply absorbed the impact, and bounced back into their original form. Back in the day, if you went to your local Saturn retailer, the sales folks would eagerly show you how well the panels worked by either pounding on the side of a car with their fists, or by inviting you to jump up and down on a sample door panel laying on the floor. No matter how hard you tried, the panels always went back to their original shape.
