    Ok, see, I must have this GM thing bad. After picking up the 87 K5 Silverado this summer Here is what else I am buying:

    88 Monte Carlo (Not the SS, 4.3 v6).Hey, its got AC, and Im getting it for 1000 bucks. No rust, and its straight!

    84 Suburban 1500. new Engine and tranny, new tires, Got some rust, but otherwise great condition. $2500 bucks! too bad its 2wd. But it will make a great tow vehicle!

    Do you guys think Im crazy? Should I just skip the burban? HELP ME!!!!

    I would have to agree with the capt.. Skip the burb and spend it on the blazer. Later LittleJimmy.

    I would say the opposite.

    Skip the Monte and get the Burb. WIth the Burb you can spend that extra $100 you saved fromtheMonte and buy a trailer!!! Now with the Burb you have a tow vehicle!

    Hahha.. Such support, its scary!

    I will most likely get the burb. But where can I get a trailer for 100 bucks? I'd get one in a heart beat when Im doing construction on my parents house.

    Go to Uhaul...rent a trailer for about $100. Don't ever return it. There you go how to get a $100 trailer! :-)

    PS don't get caught!
