New wheels

Post by MaineVette » Sep 4th, 2016 10:45 am

So, like Vito, it was time for me to upgrade my daily driver. For the past 10 years I've been driving a completely stripped down 2004 GMC Sierra 1500. Good truck to plow the driveway with, but not a great truck for the frequent long drives down the highway I have to do for work.

I'm keeping the truck to plow the drive, run to the lumber yard, dump runs, etc but got myself a nice set of used wheels. After "roughing" it for so many years I went to the complete other end of the spectrum and picked up a fully loaded 2014 Mazda6 Grand Touring. I'm not usually a fan of white cars but the pearlescent/metallic white paint on this one is pretty sweet - photos don't do it justice. Just thought I'd share. :D

Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:
