The Swiss Army Knife of vehicles

I used to think they were funny looking - until I bought one![img] 2002 Chevy Avalanche: http://forums.pelicanparts.com/uploads14/Picture+0501237817429.jpg[/img

Darn thing can pull my boat, carry my bike...and transport the family & all of our stuff in complete comfort.

Not Pictured: 2008 BMW 535xit Wagon....it hauls & IT HUALS! So says my wife.

Last June my sweet Wife found this at the local dealer. 2007 Solstice, year old with less than 1000 miles, full factory everything. She did all the haggling, all I did was supply the cash.

2008 Avalanche....my second. I think they are a bit over-styled with the flying buttress's and all, but it does everything quite well. Don't have a pic but you guys know what they look like. It's silver with maroon leather interior.

Kevin8. Small world....I have kept a boat in the water at pier 49, that marina for over 10 years. I know Jerry and the Tony very well. The pic is my guess 2 years or more as there is a building now to the left. I live about 5 miles away. Do you live around here.

O yea the cars: 1992 850i for play and a 2006 530i for work and a 2002 s80 volvo for wife and dogs to beat up on.

Regards,
Lane

No, you no longer have to own two. Three tons of heavy metal. Just like the one in Pretty Woman.
