Don't shoot me....

....but I own a 1981 Suburban C10 with 22,900 original miles. Bought it in June from the original owner's son. The old man just used it for grocery getting, and kept it in his car port. It was Ziebarted at the dealer, so it has little rust, but probably weighs 300 pounds more than it should, lol. Its a great family vehicle, and you can fit almost anything in the old gal.

If only Ford had made one back in the day......

Very nice! We have a Tahoe in the driveway. It's been a great vehicle and still is!

No worries, Man! We all have other cars, ya know. whistling

I had a '78 4x4 K5 Blazer about 20 years ago - still kinda miss it now and then. I wouldn't have been able to rebuild my Mach 1 if I hadn't had that old K5 - it needed a lot of help. I'm a sucker for buying junk and making it nice again. Cool

Looks like a great 'Burb. thumb

That's a cool ride. WOW, I can't believe the low mileage. And no worries, we still love ya. I have a mostly 82 Jeep Cherokee that is 'the other ride'. Wink

Out here in the west they're also known as a Cowboy Cadillac. After a few years of ranch duty they don't look like yours, though.

I love the old Suburbans. Looks like a great find. They are usually rusted down to little more than a pile dust around here.
