I hope you took pictures?
Ok, I am beginning to get it now. This is my first ever GM car, and first American V8 since about 1985. I just wasn't sure about running such high RPM. The ride overall is superb. My wife commented from the pass seat that she was shocked at how smooth it pulls.
Right now it's all new to me - the TV the TT the hitch. So, I am just being cautious and asking when in doubt. Thanks!
We were too exhausted when we got here to take pictures. But tomorrow I will definitely take some! We have all day to organize the TT and get some swimming in here.
