Hey, someone let Tom R know that there are black carpenters.
So that's who's buying these pick up trucks. Thanks, I was wondering who the hell would buy a Cadillac pick up truck.:blink:

Just to be clear, if I see a brother driving one of these, with Craftsman tools in the back, he's a carpenter?:thumbsup:

I saw one of the Cadillacs around here the other day, but I think it had Touroid (out-of-state) plates on it. It was bad enough when those companies started making SUVs, but "pickup trucks" is just plain wrong.
Maybe as a "flower car" for a funeral home, but that's it. :mad:

I think pulling up in a caddy you will get every job. After all money comes to money, so I don't see anything wrong pulling up in a caddy and doing an estimate. I think people sign quicker with someone in the caddy or someone in a hoopty :laughing::thumbup:

That Lincoln Mark LT is sweet. I'd roll in one of those.

Nothing wrong with the Caddy per se, I just happen to be more of a Ford guy.

Now if I could get a 3/4 ton Avalanche with a 6.6 D-Max and an Allison I'd be a GM guy.

You could get it with the 8.1 gasser with the Allison.

I looked at a first generation Avalanche 3/4 ton 4x4 with an 8.1. Man what a truck! The Avalanche is a great concept. You get a regular cab longbed or a crew cab shortbed all in one truck. Really like it. Two problems with it though. First it was ugly as all get out. Way too much gray plastic. Secondly it was too expensive for my taste. The cost was over $40K.

The second generation is marginally better in the looks department, at least they got rid of the gray plastic cladding. However they're still too damn expensive.

It would be nice if the Avalanche was available in a work truck trim level. Vinyl seats, AM/FM, manual windows and locks, rubber floor, etc. Get the price down to a reasonable level. Landscaping is tough on trucks.
