Someone’s not shy about telling the world what’s rumbling away under the hood of their old Suburban. Has it ever broken out of the single digits, mpg-wise? Who cares; gas is cheap, although not as cheap as it was a couple of months ago.

I’m not going to even guess at the exact year given the custom grille. I tried CarFax with the license plate, and it didn’t know. These were built for what seemed like an eternity. Eighteen years, actually. try doing that nowadays.

Maybe the Grim Reaper or Angel of Death on the front knows the exact year.

All I know is that it’s a beast. And the eight lug wheels and home-brew “454” call-out rather confirm that.
