wow, you must really love that Saturn! Why not just get a Honda all set up?


Everyone does a Honda who does a Saturn


That's a good point Dan be independent that's why I drive a firebird and a lot of people don't but Independence is great huh!


Exactly Paul but unfortunately I've had to make a tough decision I'm going to have to sell the Saturn because I can't find a new engine for it and parts are hard to come by so I guess I will try to find another Rarity unique project car anybody have any suggestions or maybe even know where I can get 1 real cheap


Dang, i was hoping this would have an answer. I am thinking of 3.8SC swapping my saturn SL. Trying to see what I need to do.


Hi Dan, I don't know about a project car for you but maybe you can try getting the EcoBoost Ford engine installed in there who knows? I hear that's a pretty quick engine!
