Saturn and the Warriors

Lucky us!  We traded our Saturn Ion just in the nick of time, because GM has announced that it is going to shut down Saturn’s factory and dealerships, resulting in the layoff of 13,000 employees.  If we had waited, Toyota would not have paid us $2,000 for it.  After all, who would buy a used Saturn if it is no longer being manufactured? I think our guardian angels were looking after David and me, when we decided to buy a Camry six days ago.  Perfect timing!

Unlucky Warriors!  The University of Hawaii football team lost to Louisiana Tech 27-6 yesterday.  What an embarrassment!  UH couldn’t even score a touchdown, managing to kick only two field goals.  I doubt we’ll win the WAC championship.  The mantra now should be:  “Hawaii Bowl!”  I hope we win enough games to qualify for the Hawaii Bowl.  UH is presently 2-2.

Ah, well, it is just a game, not the end of the world.  Ten years from now, who will remember it?

    Undoubtedly, the death of relatives and uncertainty of the condition of family and friends in Samoa took its toll on the road-weary Warriors.

    Prayers and good thoughts for all.

    Wow! That was a break with the car.

    And who will remember this football season after it’s over? The coach. “That was year I got fired.”

    Awww Gigi — Yep, Toyota’s are great.

    But I still have my ’97 Saturn Wagon, (my Dad’s), and had a ’94 before that. Lots of my friends and family got Saturns, as they were made well, and they had plastic side panels. Saturn was doing lots of things right, but drivers weren’t ready to be practical. They stopped making the plastic side panels because the company was absorbed by GM, and it was cheaper to return to metal.

    GM will service and repair all of the Saturns. I didn’t like the Ion’s speedometer being to the right of the driver’s steering wheel. Kansas City gets lots of snow and tons of salt on our roads, and the plastic side panels stayed spiffy.

    Have fun with the Toyota! DrumMajor
