2008 Astra XE
Default Why am I here today?

Short answer: 1994 SL2

I didn't know my old website was still up, but I was glancing over these old pics and remember Oct. 6th 2004, 9:30PM all too well.

Me: Southbound inside lane I-95 doing 75mph
Crackhead in stolen '73 Caprice: Northbound inside lane doing 110mph +
(you do the math)

Simultaneously we drove into an infamous FL rain squall when the remaining two hand tightened lug nuts gave and his driver's side wheel shot across the swale straight into my hood, no warning, no time to react, just bang!

The Caprice sped balanced by forward motion for almost half a mile until the front end crashed and dug into the roadside. My SL2 was totaled, but I was un-scratched.

There are many other reasons, but do I need any other reason to be a SaturnFan? If not for any reason, I am here and grateful for the safety of Saturns.
Saturn lives on.
