    I’ve read some good stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much effort you put to create such a magnificent informative web site.

    What a waste! With a currently-unique (Saturn is no longer) passenger/curb door that could have been a pillar-free slider, barn door, or overhead job, they stuck with the ho-hum fore-and-aft pair of hinges. Why not true innovation?
