    My dad got the suburban in 1990, so I guess you can say I had it for 14 years, its just I couldn't drive for about 8 years of that.

    8 years this fall.

    Wow it's been that long already, two engines, three trannys, two rear ends, a whole body swap . . . and I just pulled my head out of my butt and started gathering my 1 ton gear. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My dad bought my Burb used in 1983 with 36k miles. He gave it to me after it caught on fire in 1992. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    So, it's been in the family for 21 years, I've owned it for 12. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
