Re: New 2010 TUG Coming

Hi: Jim Bennett...Jim, My last car was stick shifted red VW New Beetle and I drove it for 10 yrs.
People who drive red vehicles are type cast as aggressive, besides we don't own a red Escape!!!
White with gold stripes should look well being pushed by a 5.0. Looking down the road this will probably be my last new vehicle. When you're put out to pasture the banks get skittish about lending so much money. As it is now I'll have to sign a promissary note and I just hope they will let me use the truck when I ask for it!!!
I let my cowgirl test drive it and with her G FORCE right foot it was a wild bronco ride.Trouble is she thinks it's HERS : Alf

Re: New 2010 TUG Coming

I'm willing to guess Sierra just by the number of ads they've been running lately. Could Alf be influenced?

I'm gonna guess Frontier, because Alf and Maryann have seen a real truck, and how nice it looks with a 5.0 hooked to it : - )

Re: New 2010 TUG Coming

Hi: All...The fine young lady from the dealer in London left a message to say the truck arrived. To be delivered/picked up by me Fri. @ 10 am. I have to haul a very large sum to them for final discharge of paperwork!!! This purchase will prop up our sagging economy for a short period of time.
Dale Downie was one of the dealers GM spurned in their Corporate realignment and he made the sucessfull conversion to NISSAN and hasn't looked back!!! Alf

Re: New 2010 TUG Coming

You'll love it Alf! For a long time. You won't notice the power on those Ontario "hills"....but when you make it back to the Blue Ridge, or out to those hills out West...you'll be asking Maryann if you forgot to hookup the 5.0 : - )

Re: New 2010 TUG Coming

Hi: All...It's been quite a while since I was impressed by a vehicle. Well that's over now!!! Once I get the gold pins ala Escape on the sides and all hitched up this tug should be good to go. The Frontier is not a small truck...but well into the midsized range. In white it looks much larger than the silver tester we drove. Here's a couple of pic's from our garage. Pardon my mess!!! Alf
