Unable To Unsee: 1998 Chevrolet Suburban

The Suburban name was first used by Chevrolet on a big people carrier way back in 1935, but the GMT400 version that was introduced in 1992 set up the current paradigm of the urban assault vehicle. It combined a nicely riding truck chassis with luxury amenities on the inside and an exterior that looked appropriately businessman ready. Except for this next Suburban, that looks like a guy in a suit with blue hair and lip ring. Find this 1998 Chevrolet Suburban offered for $22,500 in Claremore, TX via craigslist. Tip from Brad.
