We Say: At first we thought Greg had it all, owning both of these clean trucks. When we got further into his letter, we discovered that he has to give up one of them due to his back and leg problems. Unfortunately, the one to go will be the Silverado, which we would prefer to have but is probably harder to get into because of its size. Since Greg will only have the Blazer, he's decided to customize it even more and we hope to see it again.
