Dave's 2007 Saturn Sky

RedLine Turbo

The Saturn Sky RedLine got a big boost in performance over the base model from an Ecotec turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, GM's first direct injection offering in North America. In stock form it produces 260 horsepower at 5300 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 2500 rpm, making it GM's highest specific output engine ever at 2.1 horsepower per cubic inch of displacement (130 hp per liter) and the most powerful engine in the Ecotec family.

Lots of fun. Handles like a go-cart. I told my wife this will be my last roadster. Getting too old. Getting "in" ain't so bad, but getting "out" is a beach. :-)

I believe there is a move on to get car manufacturers to align their products with those manufacturers of the EZ-IN&OUT-Recliners. It lifts up to place your butt in and then goes in to a seated position, and then just the opposite when it's time to get out.

I said to my wife the other day the 64 Corvette seems to be getting lower to the ground or I am getting taller. I now bump my head on the roof line......and I hear more knee cracking as I lower my manly heft to accordion in to the crunch position.

My wife told me to do more crunches........so I now eat peanut butter with nuts in it.

I hope she's happy..........I still can't get in to the car. SO much for listening to the wife.
