Chevy Colorado

I left a deposit on a new 2018 Extended Cab z71 Colorado. Picking it up in Albany Saturday.

We'll see how I like the truck life.

PS Buying a GM vehicle is a pain in the ass with all the stupid rebates, etc.

PPS The Cayman and e91 are toast. Those interested, form a single file line, please

You know what's even better than buying a domestic vehicle? Service and warranty work.

Enjoy! (from one of the other few domestic vehicle owners here.)


Edit:
I'll start the bidding on the Cayman at $25k. Good? I can pick it up on Monday.

Awesome news !! That is a bad ass looking truck ... I think you're going to be very happy with your new ride !!

BTW that pic is kinda funny with snow in the bed and the exhaust smoking up a storm ... what did they do, move it inside so you can check it out ?

Haha. But it's a dealership photo. My garage is nowhere near that big. That's why I ended up with a small truck
