    So I finally did it, sold my wife's 01 Tacoma and bought her a '89 Suburban. The whole idea was to get out of payment so we can focus on buying a house and her commute is alot smaller now.

    Here she is, just got her tonight, shes an '89 Silverado burb. Fully loaded with bucket seats, power everything and 137k miles. The 350 runs great, no smoke on start up and real healthy. The interior is in awesome shape, the seats are perfect no tears or wear. Does need a windshield and I do plan on do some repainting. The roof needs it bad and so does the silver. So I may just do the roof and the silver for now. But I'm excited, I grew up with my parents owning a 82 burb with a 6.2 and I've been wanting to have my own for a while now :D

    Me Too!!!

    I just got my 89 two days ago. I had a two wheel drive before I went overseas. Now I just keep adding to the collection, all I need now is a K-5:D .The wife won't go for that!:( Looks like mine is the same set up.
