Default Bought another Saturn

Picked up another Saturn tonight. Paid $500 for it. It's a 91 sl2 1.9L dohc. Got a real nice stereo system. Unfortunately the sunroof won't close all the way. It is stuck in the vent position. It's definetly got a couple problems but I'd say I got another good deal. The odometer is broken on this one to . Stuck at 124000.

Lol I wanted one with cruise. And it's got power options and POWER STEERING lol. It's also got a sunroof... Unfortunetly it's stuck open but I'll fix that tomorrow. I plan on selling mine after I know for sure I can trust this one. The guy originally put that it was an sc on craigslist so I was real excited cause that's what I really want, but then I got there and saw it was an sl ... I don't get why no one understands why I like these cars so much. What other car can you buy for $500-$800 and have it be reliable and get 35 mpg. Sure it's a bit of an eyesore, but who buys a saturn for looks

Just gotta keep your eye out for a good deal. I have Craigslist notify me when a new car comes up that meets my search criteria.

Vehicles are dirt cheap in indiana, more than once I considered driving over there to look for a truck.
