There’s only 2 cars I’ve owned or had in the family that I would buy again. STI is one. And my F150 is another.

Financial suicide. New model next year or year after. I’d rather have a VQ powered one from a year or two back.

When the Colorado launched, I still had my GMT400. I remember comparing dimensions, and they were remarkably similar. The old Full Size and new mid size trucks really are the perfect size IMO.

I loved my Colorado. Was a great truck.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Saw almost the same config over here. White, black wheels, Z51 with the taller wing..... and maroon stripes up and down the center of the car. :gag:

It looked okay, but honestly needs a good amount of lowering. The ass end looked like it needed about 3-4" pulled out of it so it wasn't 4x4 spec.
I'm on my last bag of peas.
