Looking for...

Well Im looking for a car/truck that is either a 4 Wheel drive or a Front wheel drive. (NO REAR WHEEL) it Has to be a GM model (no ford or foreign crap) because they cost more to fix and I dont wanna drive 100 miles if it needs to be fixed. Oh yes I'm looking to spend under $5000

Heres what Ive looked at

Oldsmobile Aurora
Buick LeSabre/century
Chevy Silverados
Chevy Astro (AWD)

Likes-
Tinted glass (DARK BLACK)
Dual Exhausts
Bright colors
6 or 8 cylinder


Dislikes-
lots of stickers/graphics
odd colored window tint (purple)
Long boxes (trucks)
Lots of trim (astro vans)
Dull colors
Extended (astro vans)
4 Cylinder (Yuck!)


I know for a fact that Buick has a good Motor (3800 Series II V6)
The Chevy trucks use a (350 V which last a LONG TIME

I dont want anything under 1996 and I DONT DONT DONT Want over 130k Miles. Anyone have suggestions?

Irony - Noun. incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result. See: "Anarchist" worrying about rules.


Aren't Silverados rear wheel drive?

Re: Looking for...

Dont mess with the Astro. There is a flaw, in the fact that the mounts for the fans , and powersteering are all attacked to one bracket.
There is so much tension on the bracket that they have a tendency to crack, and then break.

And when they break, you are in for a real NIGHTMARE!!!!!

Everything has to come off of the bracket and remounting has to take place.
I have seen the same bracket replaced on a Astro 3 times with breakage in the same area.

VERY EXPENSIVE!!!!

And I think Cid is right on the Silverado being rear wheel drive.

Re: Looking for...

I've seen many 4WD Silverados. Not many in the $5K range with under 130K mileage.

Yeah Silverados are rear wheel drive, but they can easily be switched to 4WD when needed, See if I had just a rear wheel drive that didnt have the 4WD option that would be an issue getting stuck, Going up my drive way (yes it is a black top driveway) but it gets really icey.

Plus Silverados being rear wheel drive I can whip some donuts

Joke ^

There is a level of expectation on this forum. I expect to be able to open thread an not have to worry about my kids sitting nearby seeing some naked chick holding a guitar. You got a problem with that?

Re: Looking for...

Not at all, I just appreciate the irony in life. A guy who beats on his chest that he's an anarchist worrying about the rules of an internet message board is funny to me. Actually it's really funny to me.

Anarchy- Noun. A belief system that there should be no rules (that are inconvenient to me)
