To jump over hyper-space from the Ghost thread. <br>Thanks for the kind wishes everyone, it will probably take 2 months to get it then we have to get OAC of course. I think we are OK there. It always is a little nerve-wracking. <br>Topper it is not AWD. We will just deal with it when it comes. I can always drive the <br>F-250 to work if need be. We really don't get much snow anymore. <br>Skul, not too worried about ash but if need be we can get out quick. Or lava. Yes party is here we have a huge back seat. Hubby checked.<br><br>Rman I have seen a couple of the new Mustangs and they are great looking but I have only seen the hard tops.<br><br>Yes ezrider 340 is plenty. When we tested it the salesman did not go. He did tell us to keep it below 100. We took the onramp to I-5(Rick driving) and were a little behind a truck already on the freeway. Rick stomped on it and we shot past that sucker like buttah. Smooth. It was as close as I've been in a vehicle and had it feel like the lifting thrust of an airplane. We were ecstatic. I drove on one of the country roads so I didn't get too wild, but I went to work and told them, "It was amazing! I went from 30 to 50 before I could even see the needle move." They laughed because they thought I was going to say 100. I can hardly wait to get on the freeway for work every morning. I think at a steady 80mph it will not use as much fuel.<br><br><br>As for geek factor I didn't want a GPS in dash because technology changes too fast and we would like to keep this car ten years. We have a handheld anyway. No satellite radio (sorry Pete) because we already have two iPods and can't see the subscription cost.<br>I am getting hands free phone access built into the mirror and it will be for bluetooth so you can get in and out without interrupting a call. We love the interior. It is stark and clean not unlike the Apple products but it still has plenty of features. And best of all no frickin' road noise!<br><br>Rick is beating them up on the price so it getting close to the same price we paid 1998 for the Blazer.<br><br>I told him I liked it for the thrust. He says I ain't seen nothing yet. What a guy. <br><br>
I told him I liked it for the thrust. He says I ain't seen nothing yet. What a guy.<br><br>Are we still talking about the car? <br><br>How's the 98 Blazer holding up? Or did you already get rid of it? My 93 4x4 Blazer was good, but my 97 4x4 (Tahoe package) Blazer was a money pit and eventually developed a known issue (that GM would not acknowledge or repair) where the transmission would start shifting very hard when it got hot (i.e. after a 30 or more mile highway trip). The vehicle pretty much put me off American car companies for good.<br><br>

Engine great, lots of power. Road noise drives me crazy, hate the black paint, seats kill everyone's back. Want to dump it before we have problems. Good fuel mileage. Wouldn't shift out of 4wd last winter and still feels funny but that may just be us. And number one reason it's not a Magnum!<br><br>$28,000 car brand new and they wanted to give us $3,000. Rick wanted to kick the guy's ass. It hasabout 83,000K on it and is not a bad car.<br><br>When we first got it the brakes went out, the hood latch cable broke, airconditioning went out which would have ruined engine if not caught when we did. Heater went out but repair was only $300. I think that's all.<br><br>
