    Rhdsl1

    Bought a new car because I hurt my other knee and I can't drive manual transmission for a while.

    Gave me an excuse to pick up a unicorn.

    2002 Saturn SL1 -RHD - automatic - 220k at time of purchase. Very well maintained it seems because they got tax write offs as a small business rural mail carrier.

    Only plans for it are snow tires and eventually a DOHC ( still auto because of the knee ) swap. The SOHC is brutally slow compared to what I'm used to driving, but for now it's getting me from A2B

    I'll post pictures later today probably.

    Snow tires added

    Cheap GT Icepro 14s. Tires that came on the car were bald and I don't want to die

    Who knows maybe someday. I have a history of knee issues so I need a dead reliable automatic in reserve. I don't feel like doing another project right now and the DOHC swap makes sense to do because it has high miles and will have to be replaced at some point anyways. I'll rebuild the automatic transmission since MP6/7 and do a cooler etc at the same time so that I won't have to open it up again.

    UPDATE: car has been running great. I can drive my other cars again so time to prep for swap. I picked up a DOHC shortblock recently, but actually ended up buying a complete DOHC engine for it today that should be shipping soon.
