Thread: 58mark here

    Default 58mark here

    hey guys. I live in Texas and just picked up a 95 2wd suburban. I guess I was the last Texan to own one.

    I picked up a 95 suburban that used to belong to my Father in law. (original owner) My Dad is getting elderly, and my family is moving in with him, so I bought the truck to help us move, and give us more room when the 5 of us are traveling around together

    the truck is in really nice condition despite it has 145K on one the 350ci. the miles are almost all highway, and my FIL had it well taken care of by a good mechanic its entire life. the AC compressor is new, and it starts, runs, and drives like the day it was new.

    I'd post pics, but I'm at the hospital with my dad and can't access photobucket from here so I'll post pics later.

    not sure if I overpaid or not... I gave him $3000, but I had need of the truck, and I didn't feel like nickel and diming my FIL. it's got a crack front glass, but the two tone paint is beautiful all the way around... no body damage, and a near perfect nterior.

    is 145K considered high for these trucks if it's been well taken care of?

    while you're looking at this post, check out my website. it's a trbute to my dad and his car, a 58 impala. We were making good progress on it before he wound up in the hospital after a fall and nasty blow to the head. The car will get done someday, but I'm hoping he'll be able to help me with it

    to GMTC. A great place to hang out for all things GM.

    .............Nice 58. My dad had one of those. It was white/yellow. God it was fun to cruise in. We drove it from California to New York, put it on a boat and took it to France with us. What a car......

    Welcome to the site. I think you paid a good price for it. I've seen some around here with more miles sell for more.

    thanks, it's in great shape for being 15 years old. This truck is kind of special to me. My FIL bought it the very same weekend that I met them for the first time (just a month after meeting my wife) and they were visiting us when my son was born 2 years later, and we used this truck to bring him home from the hospital.

    hopefully I'll get years of service out of it..
