I know its a lot of the same old pics as always, but I just did this as a last post kinda thing. I figure thats from the good days, leading up to so far the worst which would be seeing it in a junkyard awaiting a tow truck to take her god-only-knows.

One day I'll get another one, but it definitly wont be a '07 :D (hideous srx)

and i forget who it was that wanted the engine cover (sorry) but i cant take those off :( insurance already looked at it, gave me more money than i paid for it, so im gonna just let it go.

already got a new car that puts a smile on my face when i drive, so im happy. still get bummed when i think about the escalade, see my pics, or just see certain ones in town.



friends of mine also lost their escalade suv w/ wifes xlr. another friend lost his ext, dads ram srt10, and moms cayenne. guess we got lucky with just my truck...considering our plane is being completely re-wired instead of totalled :(

Yes Alex has said before in another post he was going to remove the monitors and rims to sell.

Also Alex from what has happen to you with this EXT it seems as you were never meant to have this Lade. Good Luck in the future and hope to see you with another one.

I don't understand why there is headrest monitors before and not after...

probably because insurance won't pay for them so why give them to them. Also looks like the same case for the rims.

That's one thing that kinda makes me sad, I spent the money on the 24's, the 7" TV's and yet I never had a chance to put any of it on. The 24's were just sitting next to truck in the pics because 2 or 3 tires were bad + the guy never gave me the lug nuts. And the TV's were temporarily mounted to the headrests for the pics. Wasn't fair, but I guess better to be off the truck when it got flooded than on it :(

The guy who owns the temporary storage lot or whatever (back of a construction company lot), started getting bitchy when I went through my truck. I know I probably shouldn't be back there as I'm a liability, but damn, this was my baby...**** off. I'm just getting all the dealer papers and books and stuff out of the glovebox, taking some final pics, and saying goodbye. Leave me alone. He left me alone after that :D and went back to moving cars with a huge front-end loader....hmmm, maybe thats my transmission felt like it wasnt even there

I know exactly what you mean. Think I even told my dad that :D But this week & next week I'll be online doing my real estate class, so 1) wont have to work as an assistant much longer...2) make my dad (boss, too) happy...and 3) make some money to buy another Escalade and try to make that my dream vehicle :D

what was that big puddle from>? In the earlier days
Hurricane Katrina stopped by, and the next day my dumbass decided to drive around. Drove all around town but ended up going down the normal crusin' strip, and sucked up some water when i was only about 6-inches deep. Engine basically shut off, and truck glided to a stop in 2-feet of water further down the street. An hour or so later we got a couple people to help my friend and I push the truck into a parking lot where the next day the rest of the oil came out when my dad and I tried starting it.

Nothing happened from Rita, but Wilma wiped it out for good :(

The movie was nice. I am sorry to hear about your Escalade. It looks like you really loved having one. Don't worry, you will get one soon. I sort of know how you feel because Hurricane Wilma sent roof tiles straight at my Escalade. It dented the whole left side, cracked my windshield, and smashed my sunroof. Luckily I had no mechanical damage so it was all repairable. Once again, I'm sorry. Look forward to seeing the new one.

Thanks.
