Trucks and cars

Good morning Warren and Friends

What a wonderful birthday week I have had! I got to stay in my own area, Northern California, and still attend a Chevy Tahoe/Suburban event in Tahoe and then a GMC Yukon Denali. Did you know that the Chevy Suburban is the longest-running name brand model in history? 80 years old. I posted a picture of a 1936 Chevy Suburban on my Facebook if you want to see what the first generation looked like.

I also drove a Ford Fiesta ST and now have a BMW 428i coupe in my front yard. The Fiesta had more stuff – heated seats, etc – as standard than the BMW 428i. I actually liked the BMW idrive better than the Ford infotainment system.
