Re: new Avalanche
tim, you were phukin groovin on that disclaimer. good stuff. when i first saw the plastic wagon, i hated it. didn;t like the "look" of it. theni realized something. i have never owned a vehicle bvecause of its "look". hell, half of my vehicles we're camoflaged with homemade brush guards welded in. not pretty at al...but they were mine, they did what i needed them to do and i love them for what they were. granted my far superior to stock ranger with the lift, 302 and 35s doesn;t compare to my Z-71, but they are 2 different trucks for 2 diferent target audiences. the more i look at the avalanche and the schematics and prints for it, the more i like it for what it is. an incredibly versatile vehicle. as a soon-to-be-enginer, i havea lot of respect for what the guys at GM were doing. its the marketing guys that screwed up on the looks thing. do i like the truck as a truck...yes..and as an SUV, and a MPV...its versatile. but i wish they could do it with a more conservative body style. that thing is schwag.
