Default Requiescat in Pace

It is with great sadness I report to you the death of my beloved 1998 Saturn SL2. Over the past weekend she developed a VERY bad oil leak, leaving a huge puddle in my driveway and a smoke trail on the highway. I took her into the dealership, where they discovered the cause of death to be two things: a blown rear main seal, and a hole in the transmission housing. This car was special for many reasons. Firstly, it was the car I have held onto the longest without a major accident (over 8 years), and it took me on many long journeys (Williamsburg,VA, Lancaster, PA, Cape Cod, Toronto and most recently Montreal). I fiish salvaging my personal belongings from her on Saturday afternoon, when I pick up her replacement, a 2003 Buick Century - same color (dark green) mind you.

Rest in peace, old friend...(6/29/2000-12/4/2008)

Sorry to hear of the loss of your traveling companion.

I believe the your vehicle had one of the best appearing Veil jobs, I've seen in a picture.

RIP.

Thanks VG. It was very hard to see her in the back lot of the dealership, just sitting there, lifeless. That car will be sorely missed. I will be picking up my NEW driving companion tomorrow afternoon (2003 Buick Century - same color as the Saturn, not planned). THIS TIME, before I VEIL it (having learned from the Saturn), I will wetsand the headlights first.

I trust you will have good memories to look forward to in the future.

Years ago, I lost two different honda preludes and my wife lost a honda crx...each great a loss...

Looking forward to seeing your future handiwork!
