Personally I think it really sucks! Here's why
1. Numerous oil burning complaints
2. Ridiculous bed is to small for anything useful, why would any one drive
it then; soccer practice
3. Someone who drives a vehicle which is made out of ughly grey plastic and
thinks it is
an atractive auto should have a urine test.
4. A really unpleasant ex-girlfriend (who I ditched in a bar aftrer 3 weeks
drove one. She also smelled bad.
5. My neighbor in my apartments has one. Pretty loud booming stereo at
3am. Piece of trash! Yo rap music sucks a-hole, keep it to yourself.
6. Did I mention it was a chevy
7. I really hate Chevy since they cancelled the Z-28 Camaro. Now that was
a cool looking GM car.
I think it was a fair idea executed poorly. If GM had left
the design up to their truck people, it might have turned
out alright, but it looks like somewhere along the line the
idiots resposible for that butt-ugly Aztec van abortion got
their fingers in the pie.
I was driving along a couple of months ago and saw one of these actually
'hauling' a few pieces of lumber. Of course, the back of the pasenger
compartment was opened up for the wood to fit into the bed (and back seat
area!). The funny thing was, it looked like it could have started raining
at any time. Why would anyone want a truck, but have to open the passenger
compartment up to the weather? One could only imagine how bad it would be
if the A/C or heater had to be running...
You can haul lumber in an Avalanche and not get the inside wet, provided
the rear window and cargo bed covers are in place. The rear window is
separate from the midgate.

Actually........there is a nylon bag that comes with the vehicle that
all 3 sections of the cargo covers fit into & it has straps that you tie
to the LH side of the cargo box.

Of course they suck!!!! Here's why:
1. It's not a car, it's not a van, it's not a truck either. It's a butt-ugly
2. Any insane sports mom would drive it cuz they think it's cool. I'd call
that thing a worthless scrap metal.
3. They're gas hogs! Oil Burning complaints is one of them.
4. They're designed by the same idiots who made the butt-ugly Pontiac
5. Crappy GM/Delphi factory made car stereo system.
6. Of course, it's a Chevy. Crappy Hogging Engines, Very Yucky!
7. I really hate Chevy since the Chevrolet brothers left Ford Motor Company
and GM bought Chevy. (That was way before I was born, of course.) The
I'll bet you read that in the same magazine that said the SVT
Focus 2DR hatchback can go from 0-60 in 1.3 seconds. ;)

Wrong again. A V10 Viper can't even do that, it takes
a Viper 3.9 to get to 60. The SVT is 7.4. Louis Chevrolet
was a race car driver that GM used to promote their cars.
you must have read about the Dodge brothers and Chrysler
Thanks for correcting me if I was wrong about the SVT Focus. However, I
remember reading about the SVT Focus in one of the magazines a few years
back. I also read about the Dodge Viper V-10's and I could care less about
them. I'm not a fan of either Daimler/Chrysler or GM. I'm always a true Ford
man. I would always buy a vehicle in the Ford family. (If I can afford one,
meaning the Jaguar or the Volvo, but could never afford an Aston Martin.) I
like Ferrari too, but could never afford one.
I am also a huge motorsports fan. I am a Ford, Jaguar, and Ferrari
racing fan. I watch NASCAR, CART, Formula 1, ALMS, IMSA and nearly every
racing series except for the IRL. I like any sportscars in the sportscar
racing series powered by Ford.
You know what's funny about the Chevy powered indy cars in the IRL? They
are Cosworth engines powered by Ford originally built for the Ford teams in
CART. The Chevy teams in the IRL asked Cosworth to rent the engines to the
team and it's funny that Ford allowed the Chevy teams in the IRL to rent
their Ford/Cosworth engines. Those engines got a Chevy stamp on them. The
Chevy teams in the IRL are not exactly "stealing" Ford Thunder. They're
"renting" Ford Thunder. This was in Racer magazine last summer. Source:
Racer Magazine. See www.racer.com for back issue articles.
Yes, but what parts off of that motor would you find on a Ford vehicle?
There's not a even a nut or bolt with a Ford part number. I didn't want
to get into some big debate about this, only to point out that what's
used in an IRL motor has absolutely nothing in common with a street
Ford, other than the name.
John, this isn't a debate. However, I enjoy our converstation about
Cosworth engines even if I can't really pin-point those engine specs.
Technically, the Cosworth engines are not production based engines. They're
mainly used for racing. Cosworth has built racing engines for Ford and
Jaguar. I hear that Aston Martin are building race cars again and might race
in the American LeMans Series. It's likely that Cosworth would help build
those racing engines for Aston Martin. If you want more information about
Cosworth engines, try these links.

I hope these sites helps you find the information you need. Last, but
not the least. I *always* make fun of the Chevy guys even at the races I go
to. (Sounds like a true Ford man, huh?) Formula 1 is my most favorite racing
series. CART is my second favorite. I enjoy almost every racing series, but
the IRL is my least favorite racing series.
And they even helped design a production four banger for the Chevy Vega,
way back when. For some strange reason they don't list it on their
credits, though ????
I'd heard something about the Aston Martin/Cosworth link, too. Should
Enh, I've got a Blazer, the little lady has an Explorer, gave my son my
Nissan. All are reliable. Every maker builds good stuff, and every one
of them builds crap on occasion. Lately, GM's been sucking the most with
piston slap and leaking intakes. Never have been able to make any sense
of Dodge's wiring "methods".
I also have a Triumph Spitfire, 78 model with Weber DGV carb. It keeps
my tools from rusting. In fact, wear is becoming an issue ;)
Yeah, Cosworth did design a production based 4 banger for the Chevy Vega
way back then. I don't know why Cosworth didn't list it in their credits.
My brother told me last night that Aston Martin would probably run in
the ALMS this year at around the end of the season.
My dad has a 2003 Explorer XLT. I find that very reliable for towing,
off roading, and driving in the snow. Some of my friends has a Chevy Trail
Blazer. Those are nice, but they only have an inline 6 cyl. engine. They're
also built a little too "low" on the ground. The Explorers comes in either
V6 or V8. My dad's Explorer is a V8. The Nissan, I could care less. The
Dodge wiring "methods" NEVER makes sense. It doesn't make sense at all by
putting a "hemi" engine in an SUV.
Triumph vehicles were awesome! They were built in the UK. It's too bad
that they only make motorcycles nowadays (if they still make motorcycles.)
Those motorcycles are awesome! I currently drive a 2002 Ford Taurus SEL
Premium. However, I might buy an SVT Mustang Cobra someday. My dream car has
always been the 1970 Boss 302 Mustang and the 1968 Mercury Cyclone GT 390
Fastback. My dad used to have the '68 Cyclone GT 390 Fastback. I wish he had
It's fun. It was a basket case when I got it, and I got a parts car with
it. Only good thing about it was that there was only one relatively
small rust hole in the floorboard, just in front of the pedals. I've got
it painted Metallic Red. Last thing I need for it to really look good is
a set of Rims. I've got the stock ones on it now.
I think you'd like my brother's Mustangs. The page takes a little while
to load. He's in the military. He put it up on Angelfire years ago so he
wouldn't have to keep bouncing it around. Sorry for all the pop up crap.

He sold the R code and is currently doing a Shelby. I love the Shelby's,
but that R code was a very unique car.
I'll get around to putting my stuff online some day. I work with these
damn computers every day, and I've got Frontpage and have used it, but I
never seem to want to build a site with my stuff.
