Thanks for posting the Spid and these pictures.
Clearly it needs a little love but the finished result should look awesome and a lot like this one.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Suburban?

Although I do not have pictures of this Burb, I changed computers a few years ago and can't find the pics, I thought I'd post up the spid. I mentioned this one to you one time Tim. It was on Craigslist in Albuquerque in late 2010/2011 and wasn't in bad shape but of course I was haggling and when I finally came to my senses and decided to buy it the seller had sold it to someone in Florida. I do remember the front bumper was twisted away from the body on the passenger side. Looking at this Spid now it was a YG8 Package Burb in hugger orange with the orange plans seats.

What was the asking price?

YG8 and Hugger Orange is pretty damn cool.

I think he wanted 3500.00 to start but were down in the 23/26 range when we were dealing. The seller said it needed a trans pan gasket so I asked if he would take it to a trans shop and get it replaced at my expense and that way I was going to fly to Albuquerque ( 1500 miles from here ) and drive the Burb home. He was reluctant to do that which made me feel it needed a complete trans rebuild. The best price I could get for shipping was 2500.00 and I didnt want to pay that much. As I said a few weeks later I decided to take it anyway but it had sold to Florida. I didn't realize how nice/special a YG8 Hugger Orange Burb could be .

Makes sense, shipping is pretty pricey. Hopefully it went to someone that is loving it.
