Default The Family Ride ('Burb)

I picked this up from a fellow forum member late last year. My girls (age 4 and 1 1/2) love it. My wife actually really likes it too. It's a rust-free '72 Suburban with the stock 350/350. Porterbuilt stage 1 front, CPP notches and air bags in the rear, CPP front and rear sway bars, Porterbuilt trac-bar, AGR steering box and pump.

I have a 2004R to swap into it, but ran out of time before Columbus GG.

The longer term plan is for a 6.0L/4L80e combo and use it to tow my Nova (track car). The Nova will be a longer term project, but I hope to get started on it this Fall depending on how funds and available time work out.

Here is a quick couple of pics.

We'll be at Columbus grilling out behind the Suburban, so stop by and say Hi! I may also AutoX the old boat, just for fun.

I'm not positive of the wheel size and backspace, but I'm pretty sure of what they are. I just looked at the tires to verify.

20X8.5 front - 255/40/20 Toyo Proxes ST
20X10 rear - 295/40/20 Toyo Proxes ST

Brandon,

I owned two '79's but not the previous gen like yours.

What do you like about it besides the styling?
