Saturn Rises?

Those of you who've read the blog, or the archives, remember my Saturn, or 'Say-turn', as I took to calling it.

After getting a letter from the Saturn dealership about a possible buyback, I put the battery charger on it yesterday evening when I got home from work. About 9pm I went out to take the charger off, and gave her a crank. After almost 2 years of complete dormancy, she fired up. I really wish the tranny hadn't gone out. That was a reliable car. And speedy, too.

Although smoke filled the area, and it ran rough, when I shifted into 'D', the car moved forward. It has a flat tire, but other than that, it's in fairly good shape for having been driven several hundred thousand miles.
