It's gone! I can't believe it's really gone! After about 10 wonderful years, I finally said goodbye to the Saturn today. While I would have loved to have sold it to a friend, I finally ran out of time. Well, I thought I was out of time. See, I finished doing my taxes today and freaked out a little about how much I owe. Forgetting that I actually have until the 15th to send payment and that I just wrapped up a pile of projects, I quickly decided that the Ion must be sold to CarMax.
Luckily I was home sick (hence getting the taxes done), so I was able to get to Hurst before the place closed. The price they gave me wasn't bad either! More than any offers I'd received so far. It was a little sad cleaning the thing out though, not to mention how quickly they got it onto the truck. They literally had the car loaded up and ready to go before I'd even signed the paperwork!
2004 Saturn Ion Coupe. You may not have been the best car ever built, but I certainly pretended that you were. Cheers!
