Woody Suburban? Anythings Possible.


It’s getting close to the end of my beloved orange suburban. We rely on her every weekend to drive us to the water, tow an antique boat to FLA and NY and general family troop transport. The Chevy Suburban is the perfect car for such things. I average 16-17 miles per gallon and with two kids and 3 dogs a boat and wife. That ain’t bad. So now that she is getting up there in the miles area. I have been looking around. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz… So out comes the photo shop. It dawned on me, one can customize anything, and that does not mean I need to pimp it like on MTV. OR Drop it and paint it purple. Why not bring a little classic style to a new 2009 Suburban. Heck the first suburbans came as woodies…Have I lost my mind?

    I actually have a 1999 Suburban woody built by a wooden boat builder. BThe woody gets thumbs up wherever I go. Only modern woody suburban I have seen or heard of. Never seen winter. I am the second owner. Would like to know more about the builder’s history if anyone might have info. Anyone know anything?
