    Hi everyone. I will try to answer everyone in order.
    1. My 79 Pontiac is a black on tan, Bandit style Trans Am. It is my pride, and has 83000 original miles. No mods to the outside. It still has the cat, and R-12 in the A/C. It's not "perfect" but I had it recently evaluated and it came in at $15000, so it is not bad either.
    2. The weather up here is pretty good. Warm during the daytime (between 60 @ 72 degrees) and a little cooler in the evenings (between 37 @ 55 degrees). The trees are just past the full bloom of the autumn colors, and the leaves are starting to fall quickly. Just a picture wonderland.
    3. My Suburban is a 1991, R2500 2WD with a 6.2 diesel, buckets and auto trans. I bought it with some surface rust and 128000 original kilometers (79535 miles for my neighbors south of the border). Originally I bought it as a working vehicle, from our local power company, Hydro Quebec. It is a clean vehicle though, with no rust on the doors or rockers. After close inspection, I got a third row seat, added a Webasto Airtop 2000 diesel fired cab heater for rear heat, and gave it a quick paint job at my friends body shop. Last week-end, (Canadian Thanksgiving) I took my wife, three kids, In-Laws, Sister-In-Law, satellite radio, Mini DVD player for the kids, and we all drove down to NYC in what we now affectionately call "Big Bertha". Great trip, and cheap on fuel. I love my Sub! :cool:
    Anyhow, Love the site, and everyone is so friendly. Thanks for the WELCOME!!
