Welcome to the site Kurt, it's great to have you here
The one and only Deinze city in Belgium ?? It's a small world after all !!
FINALLY, after a time-out of a few years due to rebuilding our house, I'm starting to have some extra time left again for my personal hobbies like the Suburban.
As from the beginning, Honky Kong Jr., you were absolutely right ! I received the dealer invoice from my 1986 Suburban and it stated clearly 185 hp....Now I only need to find them.....
Welcome from Florida
Man, that TH
Awesome truck, you have my pitty when it comes to driving that th ing in Belgium with gas prices being triple what they are where I live.
If it were my truck, I would change out the transmission for a 4l80e. It's not too hard to do, and not stupidly expensive (in america at least). That overdrive will make all the difference.
By the way, WELCOME!!!
Thank you all for the reply and warm re-welcome.
To be correct, my first initial post was 4 years ago and right after I bought the Burb.
Meanwhile the paintwork has been polished, the striping and wheels/tires have been replaced which makes a big difference.
But many ideas/plans/improvements/dreams to come.....
Looking good Kurt!!
Welcome from South Carolina! Glad to have you, the guys around here have been insanely helpful with my square questions, good luck!
Good looking truck... welcome from nc
nice looking Suburban !
Welcome from N. Texas!
Spent three years in the Eifel Mountain area of W. Germany in the mid '80's. Used to drive through Belgium on the way to our favorite campground at Domberg in the Netherlands. Both countries are absolutely beautiful, and the people friendly and welcoming.
Great looking Burb. I just started working on my 1988 Suburban. Let us know if there is any technical help, or parts you might need. Seems like there are always several Burbs in the local wrecking yards.
I love that paint scheme, one of my favorites! I used to have a GMC longbed with the same paint. You've got a good looking truck there, I wish my Suburban looked as good as yours.
I didn't see you the first time around, but welcome back to the site! It's always nice seeing squares in other countries.
Looks exactly like the 84 burb we had except for the rims. Had the roof rack and running boards too.
Welcome back from Texas
