Funny how the grass is always seems to be "greener on the other side of the fence." My wife and I both drive Subaru 4WD wagons in the winter for basic transportation. They rust out something awful - and the last 4WD Subaru made was around 1994 - when they switched to full-time AWD. I've got over a dozen of them up in my field - all still run fine - but all literally broken in half from rust. So, I'm always searching for rust-free Subaru 4WD wagons 1985 - 1994. I don't think they exist in New York anymore. Just recently, there have been several, for sale - in Kentucky and North Carolina - and cheap. Problem is - it would cost me twice the price of the car to get it here.

Back to the four-door Chevy trucks - what do you use them for? I can't stand them myself - the wheelbase is too long. I live on a very narrow dirt road - and from one my driveways - you can't even make the turn onto the road without backing up once and making it more of a "three point turn." Same goes with pulling a trailer. On one of my winding and narrow farm roads - I can pull an equipment trailer no problem with a K5 Blazer or a full size standard-cab pickup - but cannot even make it with a ex-cab long-bed truck. I know, I've got two F250 ex-cab, long-bed Fords. The long-wheel base makes it impossible. A four-door truck with an 8' bed is even worse.
one of these days you buy a car down here i'll buy a 6.2 up there and I'll drive up there with your car and bring my truck back.... to bad it don't work like that huh... or I'd jump on a deal where you live at...
