My grandad who lives in the USA had a 1988 Chevrolet Suburban until recently with a 4**Ci V8 which i believe was 7.4 litres.

It was an enormous 4x4 with 3 rows of seats and towed his huge speedboat like it wasnt there.

Funnily enough though, at 85mph it felt like it was going to blow up!

they do tow well, used to use my 5.0 oldsmobile to tow cars about.

Dunno why your relations car felt bad at 85mph. That olds would do 115 on the speedo before id bottle out. they get a bit wallowy/floaty.

Sorry to Hijak the thread, nice BX Stuart Oh and in case you dont know the nickname here, you once bought a black GSA from me
Ah hah! I've replied to you in another thread about that car, I did wonder if you knew it or had just read my homepage!

That GSA was a shed but it did everything I expected it to - and then some. I even got a tenner for it when I sold it ;)

By the way the amazing girlfriend is a different one from the one that came with me to pick up the black GSA!

You met the same one I had when I picked the car up - I've changed her for an older model now ;)
