I had been looking for some time for an old Suburban to fix up and was fortunate to come across this old gal. I flew to Montana with cash in hand and was plesantly surprised at what I found. She had 89000 original miles, a little blemish here and there, ran out with a little transmission noise but over all everything worked very well including the heater and the am radio. I took a little over a week on the drive back south stopping off in Jackson Hole to see John, Willie and Nancy, and Mike Trombower, happened to be Willie's Bday, it was a good time. Eased on down to Santa Fe and Abiquiu to see the Manzanares boys, David, Daniel, Michael and their mom and dad, gracious gentle people. Man I miss them! Anyway got her home, been through the tranny and transfer, brakes, radiator, new leaf springs, tires and wheels which I will be changing out for some plain 16 inch steel rims with a 9:00X16 Co- Op tire or a big narrow Michelin. Next, roof rack, front bumper, winch, etc. etc. I will follow up with pics as I go. AP

- Just Another Savage!
- I’m a Southern Boy, just 56 last November, I get around here and there, Central America, Africa, Red Bay. I’m a Father, Grandfather, Husband, Artist and general flunky of sorts. Live in a little historic town in an old building I remodeled. Just wanted to hear myself think I guess, talk about the need of simplification, show some art, express an interest or two, brag on my dogs and see where it goes. That’s it!, That’s the deal, Thanks
