Seems like a lot of vehicle to be powered by a V-6.

That one does not appear to be AWD.

You'd be surprised if you've never driven anything with a GM 4.3l! They are strong little engines that never die. Think about the amount of them in fleet use over the years for just about everything. I had a friend who pulled a 30' Airstream trailer around with one. It weighed about #7500 and all he ever did was put a tranny cooler on it.

I would LOVE to find an Astro Tiger...........less than 2500 miles from me preferably, and the AWDs are really the ticket.

I'm a sucker for anything that manages to seamlessly blend blue velour, flowered shower-stall wallpaper, and BFG All-Terrains.

And this one doesn't merely manage it........it excels at it.

There's 2 of them in my hood, I think they sit most of the time, once in a while I'll notice that they move from one side of the street to the other. I'll leave a note, see if they're interested in selling......tbc

They're pretty popular over at Expo, or should I say in demand. It's not like anyone ever gets one because they're so rare.
