Default 1948 Chevrolet

Not only do I think it is cute, but it also reeks of tradition and practicality. Surely the forerunner of today's SUVs - in fact, it appears to be much more versatile. I am sure that BenzBoy's Spitzes would feel right at home.

Default Re: 1948 Chevrolet

The 'Suburban' is an old name that Chevrolet has been using since the second world war.

It started (and remains) the 'wagon' version of the venerable 1/2 ton - 3/4 ton pick up such as the C20 or the F100.
Chevrolet simply found a way of 'closing the back' and doing a 'larger' wagon out of it.

I had a few Suburbans over the years and I loved driving them over long runs, especially my old green one that was fitted with a large diesel, tow bar and worked tirelessly towing cars intersate for me.
