Big Ugly.

Useless.

I gotta say that is probably the MOST USELESS vehicle I have EVAR purchased in my entire life! I finally admit to it. It has been hinting to me its entire time here that it is completely useless. Now I believe it.

It's useless as a truck because it has that stupid, dinky, stepside bed. You can't even fit plywood in there.

It's useless as a car, because you can't get the baby in and out of the back easily. And the wife doesn't like the way it smells.

It's useless as a hot rod, because even though it is the total RIGHT color and has the RIGHT stance, and RIGHT exhaust note, it's still only an anemic 305.

And the FINAL useless straw. It got stuck IN MY LEVEL DRIVEWAY three friggin times in the past two days. Yes THREE times. On my snowblowed driveway. With studded snows. It couldn't get over like a 3/4" ice/snow rut. Seriously? Seriously. Apparently the posi is no good. So it's useless in the snow too. With or without weight in the back.

So as much as I love the damn thing. It'll be sold in the spring. I banished it to the side driveway to be buried in the snow for the rest of the winter.

It was pretty useful for one thing though... I had a blast building it, and really want to thank everyone who helped me with it. But she's gotta go.

If you know anyone, I'll be asking 1500 bucks.

Nah... I don't think you will... Very Happy

Don't get me wrong, I love the damn thing. I just have no need for it. It doesn't do anything my wagon can't do. And it's taking up space in the driveway that another toy could fill. Wink

I hate to bring this up, but could it be the "Curse of Morticia". First the Impala and now Big Ugly. What's next?

Too many coincidences, I always had an uneasy feeling how Morticia was unceremoniously dumped.

Seriously. And I think about that car every damn day. Should have kept it. I liked it better than the marshmallow, and still do. Sad I think I actually miss it more than my Caddy. Which is weird, because that car was a total POS! Smile

My wagons have all been awesome in the snow, even with all seasons, but I always run dedicated snows in the rear, at least. I've never tried a sedan in the snow though. Maybe the extra weight of the wagon helps over the rear tires. Try some ballast in the trunk, maybe?

I'll bet if you put a sunroof in it you would fall in love all over again. Smile

Is the bed not wide enough for a 4x8 sheet?

4x4 with posi for the snow, trust me.
