It had 12,808 miles on it
when we bought it and it served us very well. It had a 350
CID V8 with a four-barrel carb and 4.10 rear end. The fuel
mileage was poor at best but it could tow. It was a nine
passenger. The middle seat was split 2/3 on the road side
and 1/3 on the curbside. Davy got the middle seat and we
would leave the curbside down so the girls could access the rear
seat. There was storage behind the third seat for tools and
other camping supplies.
We towed the Prowler with this
for a little over one season and in 1991, bought the Mallard.
We camped all over New York State with this combination. It
made multiple trips to New England, including a week on Cape Cod
and saw several other states. Our ultimate trip occurred in
1993 when we went cross country. We went through 24 states
in 41 days and traveled 9979 miles. Another memorable trip
included stops at the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky,
Graceland and the city of Memphis, the country music capital of
Nashville and the Smoky Mountains, including Dollywood and
We owned this vehicle longer than any other we have owned and
it no doubt has left us with the most memories. Ironically
though, it only had about 55 k on it when
we got rid of it in 2005. It was part of the
trade on the '05 black Grand Prix.
