The Red Suburban

By: Ashley D’Aubin, Marketing Assistant

1999 Chevrolet Suburban

When I think of a car that sticks out in my life, I think of the one you see pictured above. I don’t think of my dream car or the one I currently drive. I see that bright red 1994 Chevrolet Suburban. My parents bought the car when I was 5 years old and it drove its last trip when I was 15.

I became overjoyed seeing that car pull into the driveway when my dad came home from work. My friends and I piled into that car to go to the pool on a hot summer day. I lost my first tooth sitting in the back middle seat of that car. Miles and miles were put on that car taking road trips year after year. That car.

The day we had to let it go, I was so upset. I was attached; we all were. It had become such a member of our family and I couldn’t imagine us owning any other make or model. And I certainly couldn’t picture us having any other color than red. I still think about our big red suburban every now and then. When I see pictures, it brings back the fondest memories of my childhood.

Before you pick out a car, I urge you to truly think about the impact it can and will have on your life. It doesn’t matter what stage of life you are in, the car you choose affects you more than you’d think. Buying a car gives you an opportunity to decide how you want to live your life for the next several years. It’s a big decision and you want to make the right one. My parents did and I want you to also!

Here at All Star Automotive, we encourage you to visit any of our 11 dealerships where we have more than 3,500 vehicles to choose from. All Star will help you select an automobile that’ll make you happy for years to come! Be a part of our All Star family!
