    More Pics of the Mystery Machine

    Just took some pics after getting it washed. I figured I would take some pics before it gets "Pimped-Out" Next week....well hopefully. It's been delayed for some time now...

    But anyway, here are some shots of the Safari on CW Post's capus taken with my Olypus D-560 3.2MP Camera:







    ..She isn't a Camaro, but she's all I got...

    That's one handsome van you've got there, TaHoE!

    BTW - Safari was such a good name, how could GM just dump it!

    I still don't understand the idea of dumping the ONLY different and flexiable truck based mini-van. I don't by the poor excuses I read! All it needed was an upgraded engine and a passanger side cargo door. . . why was that any reason to get rid of it? Congrats.

    Yes it is. Funny Story:

    I took the Safari to a Chevrolet dealership after I got my Tahoe "Serviced" there, because it had to get a recall done. The woman there said that they can't service GMC's. I asked her why. She said it's a different brand, they have different parts. I told her "BS, it's the same **************** car but with a GMC badge on the front, nothing else is different". Then she said they could actually do it...ha!

    I agree. The structure definitely had to upgraded after '95 again. Ditto then engine and sliding door. But it's an excellent design none-the-less.

    Re: More Pics of the Mystery Machine

    Haha. Well the "Mystery Machine" name came from one of my friends describing it as "His car looks like the van from scooby doo". So the nick-name kinda stuck. I asked my mom if she would let me pain the thing is a scooby doo paint scheme, and she totally didn't dig it (unfortunately the car is under her name right now, eventhough I pay everything on it ) Well, if I get a paint change I either want to get SOM (like the Avalanche in your sig, along with those gorgeous 5-Spoke Chrome wheels), or maybe a metallic blue, ditto the wheels here too.
