All my life I always wanted to own a late ’80s Suburban, especially since I first saw a 1997 movie called “Dante’s Peak”. After I first saw it, I dreamt one day I would own one. Fast forward to August 2017, opportunity finally arose for me. I saw an ad on Facebook of one being sold in Prescott, AR for $3,000. So, I contacted the owners and bought the vehicle. It was in pretty good shape, especially for it being 30 years old, just needed some TLC and I got myself a very reliable vehicle and it is my goal to one day build a replica of the Dante’s Peak suburban, but it’s not going to be an easy task since I am on a fixed income and some of the parts, such as the grille guard, roof rack, and tire rack are not made anymore and finding them has proven difficult, but that’s not going to stop me from accomplishing my goals. One day, I will have it built.
