VEHICLE STORY

Bought the car back in July of 08.  The wife needed a new car and i wanted domestic.  Got it direct from Saturn when they were still around.  I am modding this to make a quality daily that if were to take to the track it would be able to hold its own.  Started like most everyone and started with more power then moved to brakes then suspension. I have changed the air intake and a larger throttle body.  I have it on h & r springs with Saab 9-5 rear shock soon to be 9-3 front struts and front strut brace.  Front brakes off a Saab 9-5.  Most recent was the focal 18 x 8 with continental dws 06.  Best mod i have done was the h & r springs.  They made it handle like a proper car. I did not have much available for mods so i had to get creative.  The throttle body is off one of the ls v8s.  Suspension and brakes are from 08 Saab 9-5.  I always seem to get cars that are not supported by the aftermarket but, i love making my own parts.  Future plans are more power and an upgraded rear brake setup to match the front.  The biggest challenge is lack of aftermarket.  This is why the car seems to be worth it for me.  Not everyone can mix and match and Frankenstein a car together.
