About “Dominique”

This was my grandmother's car that I acquired in 2008. She didn't really take care of it but it was garage kept, so it stayed away from any hard deterioration. I take care of it to the best of my ability, keeping it shiny and intact. I hit a deer in 2010 and paid $2,000 to have most of the front replaced by a local company that knew my family. She also had a factory defect involving the camshaft that caused her to break down twice, but that has since been resolved (to my knowledge). And as of May 2013, I have a freshly rebuilt transmission!

About “My Machine”

This rig was my first Tahoe, I bought when I turned 17 years old. It was a stock LT pos when I got it from my uncle. I took it off his lot and began my restoration. I have always been a fan of the country and country life style which includes beer, big tires and lift kits. Living on Las Vegas, NV most of my life, I found that there isn't many mudd holes. I moved to Washington as soon as I could, having to leave this monster there along with my 89' Chevy k5 Blazer. I currently drive a stock 96' Chevy Tahoe LT. This truck was and still is near and dear to my heart. I plan on moving to Caliente, NV giving me more space to use it.

 

Specs for “Dominique”

3.5 L LX5 DOHC V6, automatic trans, 26 miles per gallon, slow to accelerate but swift when she gets going.

Specs for “My Machine”

This truck has a 350 in it (as of right now) I plan on swapping this motor with the 454 I have in my Blazer. The truck has a 4" suspension lift with a 2" body lift. The tires are 35". I plan on trimming the fenders and putting on 38's. I also straight axled it (harder to break) :)

You can't really see it in this picture but the paint is a mixture of metallic and candy apple green. Gives it a cleaner look. The tan strip at the bottom will be gone shortly. I do plan on Repainting it to a Flat Black with neon green as the theme or camouflage, Haven't decided yet.

I put on some after market tail lights, this picture was taken before I could install the front ones.

The interior is black Swede front to back. It can with tan leather (hate leather) I also installed neon green lighting. Hit a switch an the truck lights up on the inside. It has a ken wood stereo system in it. Things loud.
