Default My first vehicle

I purchased my first vehicle in the summer of 2008. I fell in love with it. She'* a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer EXT LS. She had literally 13,000 miles on her. She was a demo vehicle and was driven by the parts manager of the dealership. I paid $13,000 for her...so $1 per mile. lol. When I bought her, my dad wasn't too pleased because he had a 1992 Lincoln Town Car which was beat to hell, literally. So his car finally gave out when his brakes master cylinder was shot. I felt bad so I handed him over the keys, title and registration to my baby. TH worst part is.....the dealership where I got her, we're good friends with them since they have known my dad since they were little kids....they had an SS on the lot that I fell in love with. They were willing to take my truck back and give me the SS, no strings attached. Here are some shots of my baby.

The day I picked her up

nice trailblazer not bad $13,000 for her is good! the SS is flashyer but with that comes more lil problems later on more electronics harder to find replacement parts i.e. wheels, bumper covers, side cladding, ect you did good with the white one and better gas mileage than the SS

Thanks everyone. She may be my dads now, but she'* still my baby. lol. The ride is so smooth and so comfortable, it feels like you're driving a couch. Of course it would have to be a V8 couch. haha. and about the SS, that'* of the reasons that stopped the trade.
