New to me TV coming soon

I haven't picked up (or paid for yet) my "new" TV.

A craigslist find that I'm quite proud of. A 95 Chevy Suburban 2500, 7.4 L V8 4x4. Yeah it's been around the block a few thousand times and needs new brakes, but for $2200 obo I can't complain much.

A nice feature that I need to verify is the "less than 5000 mile" Jasper replacement engine.

I can't wait to get it in my driveway.

Went to see it last night. Paid $1800 for it.

It's a 454 big block with 3.73 gears.

Needs brakes before I can bring it home. Friends in Flint are moving it today to begin the brake job.

It needs a serious deep clean of the interior but that's not a big deal.

Here's the only picture I have right now if my new TV. I have the rear brakes replaced, just need to finalize the title so I can move out to my friends shop to fix the front brakes.

Then up to Flint for a new windshield.

sweet. Those old 454's will pull a house. MPG is not so great, but for a tow vehicle it is perfect. Had a buddy with one same color as that. He loved it. Hated filling it though.
