I felt a little dagger go through my heart as I read the headline. My second car was a Saturn. I got it at the end of my first senior year in college. It was a little gold SL1 that I named “spud” because it looked like a potato on wheels. I always loved the Saturn concept and felt had wiser and smarter heads prevailed, the Saturn brand could have been the car equivalent of Apple. But alas, GM is GM, and I don’t have anything nice to say about the company. He’re a link to a story about Saturn’s demise:
I seriously feel like I’m going to cry because in my heart I know this may be the end of automotive innovation within the US. Of all the parts of GM I wanted to survive, Saturn was the only one I was really pulling for.
