    sold the ls off to a buddy that was on me about selling it, so finally
    picked up a new project ride. 2011 escalade platinum. has high
    miles on it, most all hwy, but all the running gear will be taken out
    and replaced with some hot rod bits. hoping to get 700 - 800 to the
    wheels with the combo i'm going with. anywho, this thing is pretty
    sweet, with all the bells and whistles of the platinum.

      it doesn't get TOO bad, considering it's a 6k lb vehicle. i've had it
      a little over a month. worst it has gotten was around 12mpg in the
      city, and best on hwy was 21mpg. it averages around 17/18ish. if you
      drive it like a bat out of hell, mpg really suffers, but keep your foot
      out of it, slow starts, etc.. it's not aweful. don't expect 30mpg out
      of it lol

      Ever since Tony Soprano in " The Sopranos " drove an Escalade I've wanted one but I guess what kept me away from even test driving one is I thought you would have to be making the money of a mafia member in order to afford the gas bill anyway it's super nice and looks like a monster with style ....enjoy

      if you can do your own labor, there are plenty of high mile units out there
      for under $15k. i paid ~$11k for this one. it's cherry, with exception of
      the miles :)
