My name is Ryan, & I am a Saturn addict (I mean owner)
« on: January 13, 2010, 01:49:39 PM »
Hello fellow topless fans (& you rare coupe owners). I finally noticed my message inviting me to say hi on this board within the Forum, so HI!

My family and I live in Saratoga, CA.  I have a 2007 Sky Redline.  Since purchasing the Sky I have met my wife, gotten married, have had our first baby, he is now 11 months, and are due again in July. We have moved from my 1 bedroom bachelor pad in Los Gatos to the 5 bedroom ranch in Saratoga.  It is AMAZING what these Kappa cars can do ;)

The Sky is a very special "date" car. With obvious seating needs, I usually drive my Suburban or 67 Chevelle.  So the "Hot Rod" sits in the garage waiting for the glorious days of SUMMER.

I am a Fire Captain and Reserve Police Officer.  I enjoy reading the forum discussions about front license plates and excuses for speeding.  It reminds me of the things I hear when giving citations or hearing from crash victims how the wreck was caused by anything but going too fast for conditions. :rofl:

Nice to meet you all.  Enjoy the ride, wear your seatbelt, stay off the phone and stay safe.

Seriously, welcome aboard to one of our nation's fine first responders.

Thank you for all the warm welcomes.  I have been a lurker here, drifting over from the Sky Roadster Forum.  I appreciate how this forum stays focused on vehicle topics with useful information. Truly a forum of fans.

I too have a radar detector, a hide-away front plate and like to experiment with the no-lift shifting that came with the GMPP ECM flash. I make choices and there may be consequences (like a Crown Vic in my mirror), for which I take ownership. No need to lock the RADAR thread :)

Oh, the sun is peeking out from the rain clouds. Better take advantage of the opportunity to give the Sky a bath.

Happy Roadstering.

Ryan

At least with a crown vic you have a chance to identify and react.  Here they use pickup trucks, Mustangs, Chargers, and I've even seen a new camero.

Not playing fair I tell you.
