Economy Saturn - '02 Saturn L200

I was a certified Metroholic for at least 8 years, 2007-2015. I have fully recovered, I nor any of my family members own Metros anymore.
Unfortunately I was only temporarily cured, I now have three 2002 L series Saturns. They are a much nicer car than a Metro and they flat tow behind the motorhome. I have been driving my LW300 for the last year. They are really Opel Vectra B series made here and marketed as the big Saturn from 2000-2004. The v-6 cars are all automatics, the 2.2 Ecotec 4 cylinder cars were available with both a 5 speed and the automatic. I have made several maintenance repairs to this car but I really miss driving a stick shift. So I went 700 miles to buy a L200/5 car with a thrown rod. It is a high line car with all options, I have another Ecotec short block. I may convert my v-6 wagon to the 4/5, I have the same year complete donor. Oh crap- here we go again. The other sedan is a 4/auto with a bad timing chain and bent valves. Clean car w/ 130k for $300, I couldn't pass it up. I will repair this one and drive it while I decide what to do with the wagon.

The list
1968 CST 3/4 ton Chevy pickup on a 72 4x4 chassis. Been in the family since new.
1984 GMC custom crew cab on a suburban frame, 6.5 / 700r4 4x4
2006 Lincoln Navigator 4x4
1996 Coachman motorhome 33'
1984 Ford Ranger 4x4 ranch truck
1984 Seaswirl 18' ski boat w/ 350 Chevy/OMC
2002 Saturn LW300
2002 Saturn L200/5
2002 Saturn L200/A

These are in my name and there are 2 drivers.
Pretty scary when you write it down.
