Any original owners still here?
« on: 12/06/17 01:55 PM »

I bought my 2008 Z71 new and have been a member since 2009 and have paid a few years as a supporting member but along came Facebook. Although I've been away,I still feel this is the best place to go for information on all Avalanches.
  Are there many more still here that have bought  their Avalanches new?
Even the newest Avalanches will soon be five years old!
  Thanks!

Bought our '07 new in May '06. Less than 70K miles on it and plan to keep it for quite a while longer.

Hmm, 1,088 pages of posts.  I searched the first 38 and only saw a picture of a Trans Am.  I think I'll check the Chevy Truck Legends site as I think that will be easier.   :laugh:

Bought new in 2010, joined the forum a month after and I still visit regularly 7 years and 120,000km later!  I just wish it was more active around here like it used to!

Like YGMN I ordered my 02 Avalanche in 01 and still have her. I am proud to be one of the charter members of the site. Also I am proud of being able to say with the help of the owner of the site, at that time, I helped in the design of the site logo. Glad to see that logo is still on the site.

We did not buy our 02 new, but we did our '13.

March 29th, 2013 to now and just over 46k miles. Getting her ready for a trip to Savannah and back tomorrow so it'll be over 47k come this weekend.

Our 02 had 109k on it when we bought it in 08 and right at 170k when we traded it for the '13

2003 bought in 2003, going strong, engine purrs and is clean as can be - problem is the frame and lower body are rusting away from rest of vehicle (New England winter salt).  My favorite vehicle ever.
