I guess I never knew how big the Avalanche was until I almost got creamed by one today.

He was doing a u-turn in an Avalanche and guess didn't see me in the Cavalier. Pretty good turning radius too. Anyhow, I was turning too so we missed each other. I was looking up at quite an angle at that beast though.

Aren't those things huge. What a monster. From the rear view mirror of a Cavalier/Sunfire it must look like a steam roller coming at you. Check your mirror and start screaming like a little girl...AAAAHHHHHHH!

But really you should have traded paint with it, just to tell us how it felt...

Well, he turned in front of me, he was doing a U-turn while I was driving towards him. This intersection gets a lot of wrecks, probably a really bad one every 2 week or so.

Anyhow, it's fortunate that I was turning, so he was turning left to the west and I was turning left to the east and we missed each other by about 10 feet.

Something about it makes it look bigger. Like if you see a skinny kid that's about 6'1" ... from a distance he looks like he's 6'5". Something about a truck being that size makes it look larger to me.

probably doesn't help that you're sitting eye level with the gold bowtie on the avalanche when you're in the Cavalier.
