She's really good at drive by poop shooting! Now it will probably be another 4 to 6 weeks before we see her again. :roll:

It's what she does. She pops in and drops a little bomb and runs.

So, went on our first road trip today in the "new" Suburban, 170 miles, mostly highway/steady speed driving and got 17 mpg. Last week during in town/ stop and go driving checked in at 14mpg. No new weird noises or unexpected things cropped up. Still getting used to it's quirks and characteristics, but am happy with the purchase.

We're in a stretch of decent and warm weather for the next few days, so the plan is to strip out the interior and clean it, it's pretty gross, not hazmat gross, but worse than I care to live in. In the process cleaning and reassembling there are a few things to fix, like a separated window switch in one of the doors, various panel squeaks (I can't stand squeaks! ), and a few broken or missing trim pins to replace. After that it goes to my body man neighbor who's going to fix a few minor dings and paint issues and then buff and polished to restore the paint and exterior trim. She should be looking pretty good by the time we're finished.

If I remember, I'll get some before/after pix for those interested. 8-)

I pressure washed the patio to have a place to clean the carpets when I pull them out. I pressure washed the floor mats, what a difference, them babies was dirty! These mats are carpet with rubber back. The cabin carpet is the typical jute back, and it's probably gonna get the same treatment.

Unfortunately, I didn't think to take pix of the floor mats before I started, probably should have, huh? :roll: :| :lol:

*poke poke*

Where's that sexy picture of a new vehicle I was promised?

I'm gonna need actual H-I help soon, I'm sure; I'm making a vanity. :shock:

Also, the French thing because I've been learning it and now I need a person to practice with who can see small mistakes.

Your French links are hilarious, you guys post the funniest things that keep me coming back before the 4-week mark every time ;)

Ahh the myth the legend ....DIIIIIAAAA!
Hi. :D

My guess if anyone here knows much french it would be Nutzy. He lives the closed to all that :roll: .
I had to take it through grades 7-11 but have never needed it. And honestly hated it so my retention is pretty much nothing. Je ne pas parle francais. I have that cause that's what I knew I may need in life. I even know there should be some kinda little sqiggle things but no idea how to do that on a keyboard. :lol:

Anybody wanna guess what I'll be working on today? :lol:

This is what a 'burb looks like without the 2nd and 3rd row seats. The dirt and stains don't really show too well on the camera, it's pretty grimy

There's something missing in those pics !!! :lol:

My last car, 1st brand new car I ever bought ... I picked up my oldest grandson when the car still had new car smell. I bought him a red slushie, and yep ... spilled all over the back seat :lol:


I used to be impeccable with my vehicles, now I pretty much just look at them as transportation .
I think years of driving fleet vehicles changed my outlook. .... My grandson was sure happy that I didn't freak out :mrgreen:

This is literally the first used vehicle I've bought in 30 years.

I'm pretty picky about my vehicles, since a vehicle is an extension of the driver/workman. A lot of guys don't think what they drive matters in the eyes of a client, it does. I frequently base hiring someone by what they drive. Also, the older I get, the more I want my stuff clean and looking good, I've always been this way, more so now though. 8-)

Decided that I'd start a thread for the 'Burb so as not to derail our off topic chit chat thread. :lol:
