It must be protected from crashes.

Correct. I am a pretty good driver. The Saturn also has a plastic body so a minor impact leaves no dents. Not that I have had many.

Didn't catch that it was that old. Fingers crossed.

Hopeful itís not too pricey but if it is, no biggie. Would prolly get a Honda Fit or Civic if itís a fatal injury. The car has about 160K and although my goal is 200k I wonít be too bummed if itís done. Itís no Saturn.

If it's a bent strut it's no big deal and they're probably available aftermarket. Best to replace them both, though. Wheel might be bent, too. Gotta do an alignment.

You might consider getting a beater car for daily driving and only take out the Saturn on special occasions.

Yeah I will wait for them to let me know the damage, so to speak.

What's the outlook for the Owls?

Do you ride in the wet? I rarely do. I've worn them out on the mountain bike for sure. Hey, maybe they're worn out on my road bike and I just haven't checked?

Interesting. It was my mother who taught me, and in upstate NY a LOT of women drove sticks.

While I was still working there were plenty of young people at the dealer who couldn't drive stick. Sometimes the mechanics would have to get a car for a customer because the porter couldn't do it. I don't think any of the young women there could drive them.

I used to have a 6 speed toyota. I tried teaching my girl friend now wife how to drive stick in that, and she burnt out the clutch the first day. This was 12 years ago. 2 cars later she still canít drive stick.

Velo Vol 07-31-20 06:43 PM

There's hardly any stick cars being made now.

bampilot06 07-31-20 06:43 PM

Datlas I am glad your daughter is not hurt, and hope you can get the car fixed.

My inner child wants one so bad. Not as bad as I want a quieter house, though. Also it'd just sit in the garage around here; not much fun driving.

I learned to drive stick by telling the pizza place that I could, in order to get the job.

just put what the sign said. Itís pretty close to the hotel, had to walk through cornell to get to it. All the bridges above the falls have nets under them to help stop the college kids killing themselves.

Locally referred to as "gorging out", as I recall.

I have a thing for the scion frs/subaru brz. I just really like the way that car looks. Reminds me of the supra. But itís only 2 door and with one child plus another one in the future it wonít work. Honda made a 4 door sedan look sexy, and it has a little hatch back thing going. It will prolly be the only car I ever buy new for myself, so thatís what I want to go with.
