    Default Howdy y'all! New kid from Russia with '96 manual gearbox Burban.

    Hi there, guys.
    Lemme post a couple of pics of my '96 Burban.
    We've got a lot of chemical stuff on the roads in winter, so... it's a kind of a rusty bucket with nuts... but anyway, it's still riding, and it runs great.
    So... I've got 350 block, manual gearbox taken from a 2500 pickup, 3" of body and 3" of suspension lift, and 35x10 BFG MT.
    .
    picture taken two days ago:

    .
    Some improvements... we've gota very hot summer here, so I had to install four extra electrical blowers. Two behind the radiators and two in front of them.

    .
    my rides:

    .
    some snow, guns and trucks:

    .
    And a pict of Chevy Clan Russia... last winter.

    .
    and me

    Welcome to the club. Can you get new Chevy's in Russia or do you have to import them?

    Weeeeeel... afaik, we do not have official dealer for normal size Chevy... just a lot of dealers of a "die cast models" like Chevrolet Captiva, Chevrolet Lacetti etc. We've got an official for Caddy, but again - only for a little ones, like SRX. Not for Escalade.
    So if somebody wanna get a normal size american car - he is to import it in "grey" way without warranty an so on. And it costs approximately 3 euro per 1 cubic centimeter of engine volume. So, gettin to USD - approximately 40 000 USD for a 350 V8 engine of customs payments and something more each year.
    For example, 300 horsepower will cost You approximately 2300 USD per year.
    Like that.
    And again... I've to pay three times more for every piece of spare parts I buy from USA... So, owning an American car in Russia is veeeery expencive.

    Welcome- hey I would love to have a manual trans in my 1998.
    What were all the Chevy trucks doing in that picture?? Truck club meeting or maybe parked for work?Is that some sort of mine-looks like tailings or something?

    Well, manual trans is good while offroading or on a straight and long roads. When I get stucked in a traffic, I wish I could jump off my truck and get a taxi.
    .
    That was a Lou Chevrolet's birthaday, so some guys have gathered in a sandpit near Moscow and had a good time, riding the hills, eating sausages etc. But the weather was not too much fine... Minus 17 farengheit and wind. But anyway!

    Previet, Bougaev. Welcome to the club.
    Did you do the conversion on the transmission yourself? I always wondered what that would be like if I had a 5 speed manual in my 2500 burb.
