    ^^^ Under 10K though... LOL!

    I love trailblazer SS's and the 4.2 trailblazers. I had a 05 Trailblazer LS and I loved it. I was able to tow a 22ft boat with it!

    As for gas milage, I averaged about 16mpg. 50/50 city/highway driving. I think thats going to be pretty average if you want something with enough balls to pull that kind of trailer though.

    hmmm under 10k id say get some sort of truck maybe? we just recently got a 98 chevy 1500 5.7 4x4 for 6k and its very nice 150k miles tho but its extended cab, not as comfortable as the crew cabs or whatever the 4 doors are but its a nice truck. im sure you can find the 99-02 5.3l 1500's 4 door for like 10k with around 120k miles maybe

    hahahaha pics/vid :shrug:

    I know some people aren't wagon fans. But I'm not of those people, so my opinion may be biased.

    We had one of these a couple years back. What a great car, plenty of room, seats 8 if you use the third row. The 5.7 gave plenty of power and amazingly enough got 18/25 mpg. We towed other cars with (sometimes my Mustang LOL). They're usually pretty cheap!
    I know its no T/B SS... but its a great family vehicle and I rocked the hell out of it when we had one.

    Here is a clean example.
    Buick : Roadmaster - eBay (item 170580085886 end time Dec-25-10 18:51:55 PST)

    +1 on the jeeps. I have a 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited in my house and I love it. Motor just went at 150k though, but we got it replaced. They really are great trucks though and 10g's could run you a nice one for sure.

    LOL when I had my t/a that god damn opti was such a pain in the ass hahaha.
