  • New folks, step inside a moment: POLL.

    Going through the lists of those awaiting membership, I've noticed more and more an interesting shift in the age demographics. Less and less does it seem to be older guys and more and more is it again seemingly going to younger guys on their first Car.

    So sate my curiosity, click your age bracket on the poll and feel free to post up about your Turd. Is it a hand-me-down? A cheap grab you found on Craigslist? Share!

      Here's my 2 saturns.
      96 sl2 5-speed $1000 total investment - Craigslist 20 min away

      Then I pushed a head gasket

      99 sl1 auto riced out from friend of a friend $300 +$200 in parts


      I'm 21, workin as the tire guy at a full service shop, I build traditional choppers in my downtime and tinker with all kinds of motorsports with friends. Plans for the satty includes DOHC/5-speed swap into the silver car using the red one for parts. Mild engine/trans rebuild on custom coilover setup using stock strut bodies, and other things. Probably some squirt

        Im 26 in may but since ill be overseas then i clicked it now. I picked up my sc1 for 1200$ on the road. We bought it specifically for just a get around car that i wasnt going to mod at all thinking there was no aftermarket for them. Well here i am with 3000$ of turbo equipment waiting for the summer to roll around

          Been around for a little bit, but I'm 19 starting my second semester of college. I have a 99 SL2 that my parents bought about 4 years ago as a second car that I sort of took over and am buying off of them in the very near future. Since we got it as an auto, I have since stick swapped it with first an mp2 then a rebuilt mp3 I built myself with a PG lsd. All new front suspension and welded subframe, rear disc, sway bar brackets, bigger bar, kyb's/progress springs full black interior swap+coupe seats yada yada the list goes on. It sure has come a long way in the past year or so and I can thank it for really getting me into actually doing stuff to cars and not just reading forums all day. I plan to have it boosted and on coilovers within the next 2 years as well.
          99' SL2- stick swapped, static, slammed, DD, forever in progress.

            Been here since 2005, but answered anyway. Because Fuck donnie.

            my old 93 SL2 that brought me here was given to me by my father, then I gave it to Donnie.
            my 95 sw2 was bought from my father for $100. Then I ruined it.
            My 96 SC2 was bought private sale from a friend for $700.

              Yeah im not new either but i've been here since 09' and im 21 now that means i was 17 when i joined still pimply faced, and sixthsphere raised me lol. I got my car(sl1) from an old lady who thought it didn't run for $200 and immediately started a DOHC build while i was still in high school. My "sattilac" as i call it has been through 3 paintjobs, a supercharger, megasquirt(s), and has greatly accelerated my mechanical and electrical knowledge. Im graduating college this may and no matter how baller i become im never letting go of my satty

                I'm 19, 4th semester of college. My 2001 blue SC2 was purchased from my parents for $1200. I helped to make it like it is now, and have now started adding some slights mods. Like I said on my welcome thread, my dad buys Saturn's (typically SL's and SC's between 98-2002) and rebuilds them with parts he has accumulated at home. So my car was one of the rebuilds, and since I helped I got a discount.

                        I'm Nate, 25 from Alton, IL. I drive a '98 SL2 that I just bought less than a week ago for ridiculously cheap as a work car but now that I've been doing my research and homework, I'm thinking of all sorts of neat things. I call my car Cron, The Lost Viking. It has 209K miles on it, and amazingly, the A/C still works. I have a sneaky suspicion that The Viking and I are going to get along.

                              I'm 23 and was a long time lurker from about 07. Had an sl1 as first car in 06. Now have that and 98 sc2 that I've done some work on. Been wanting to trans swap it, but school is expensive.
