    Just checking in here.....and thought I'd say hi....ok....and tell a story too.

    I just got back yesterday with a very fortunate find from Elgin, Illinois. It's a 16-year-old Suburban and it looks as good as it drives. I caught the ad in its 2nd day and put down a payment via telephone - haha - MINE! Now I've always viewed Suburban's from a distance and thought it's a truck I'll get when I have that family. Screw it...this seems like a good deal here. It was originally purchased as a winter replacement for a rusty Explorer, but as it turns out it's way too nice for winters in the Great White here - Stratford, Ontario (and hold off on the Bieber jokes...heard em all).

    It's been babied and highly maintained all it's life, one owner, parked indoors and given a great set of lungs - dual stainless from front to back! Brakes and lines are new all around, rims are almost spotless - 2 rashes. Tires are new'ish. Interior is very clean and has been protected. Just over 100,000 miles - still with the King's numbers, eh? Original paint on top...lower third - painted. Runs and stops straight. Couple of dings....but man....did I ever fluke with this purchase.
    Here's a few pics. :great:
