Car Day / Why o why

Did I decide to lease cars near the same time. Did you know that when you do they both expirer at the same time...

Anyway, they had some good deals..rebates, residuals, ect going for 4th of july. So I was looking at the cars we were considereing... trying to figure out which one to get... I said... the hell with it. Just get both.

My 2004 Ford F150 Super Crew FX4 4x4 turned into the wife's 2007 Lincoln MKZ. Super sweet ride... typicall higher end car. Loaded to the gills.

From:


To:






Her 2005 Chevy Equinox AWD, was going to be a my new Tahoe.. but I changed my mind and went with the Trailblazer SS AWD. Nothing like a 6.0 LS1/corvette motor crammed under the hood of the mid-sized SUV, coupled with AWD, 20" rims, lowered 2", shaved roof rack, and rear air suspension. The damn thing is STUPID fast!

From:


To:








Picked up the chevy at 6:30pm and the Lincoln at 8pm... whoa... my neighbors must thinkin I'm slingin drugs...




I'm super excited! While I haven't drove her exact MKZ yet, drove 2 before on test drives. Its extremely nice. Further, even though the SS is smaller I like it. A bit easier to drive around and the power... oh the power...

leasing is good if you like new cars every 2 years... but i still think you end up paying way too much.

Sweet rides GMan. Lovin the Lincoln, they are sweet. Did you get the AWD or FWD?

Leasing is great if you drive a fixed amount of miles, like new cars every 2-3 years, and don't like accessorizing.

You know what you are going to love on the Trailblazer GM. Every month OnStar sends you a diagnotic report of you car and it tell you the % of engine oil life left and it even tells you the tire pressure in each tire.

First off; props for being a complete freaking baller. All I can say is damn dude, a chopper and you lease your cars. Money aint a thang for you.

Secondly- the SUV needs straight pipes or at least an electronic cutout. LSx engines need to be unmuffled at least once a day. It's in the constitution of the USA.
You planning to use any of the HUGE aftermarket available on LS engines to mod the truck?
Would be pretty sick to hear a cammed out SUV pull up and rev up against a stall convertor.
