    Pewter huh? I don’t like it!! Too plain. So many more of these in Texas than up here in NY. I see a few survivors, almost always black or white.

    Suburban was called "the national car of Texas " by Texas Monthly magazine back in the square body days. 90 or 91 I think ( got the mag somewhere but not where I am now). In Houston area I see all the generations, 400s and newer, every day. Even the 21s!

    Very nice touch up. I always wanted to add a magnet to the rear cupholders lol. Everything I would accelerate the cupholders would fly open lol. Gave up on it whenever I went for 60/40

    OK! So I work for the GMC Chevrolet dealer, today was my service appt and Multi-point. Some funny stuff here!

    1) The passenger side sway bar endlink was broken, the driver side was no longer there at all.
    2) Apparently I am missing some exhaust and didn't even know it!
    3) Needed a wiper module, $10
    4) Steering box and pitman arm
    5) lower ball joints.

    Just authorized it all around noon, should have it much safer to drive around by tonight when I leave the showroom. 5.5 hours of labor with a torch that I do not have .... priceless.

    Amazing, how the exhaust hanger is still there, but the tailpipe is nonexistent. Glad I don't live in the rust belt.
    Although, our last square Burb did have the tailpipe break loose right at the back of the muffler, similar to what may have happened to your Burb. I got the baling wire out and tied the pipe up so it wouldn't drag, till we could get it to the muffler shop. Had it re welded and it was still intact when we got rid of the truck several years later.
