This car draws more interest from spectators at the orphan show than any other. Don loves to show it, so any photo has to have an interested spectator pouring over it. Here is a front quarter view:

Here is a rear quarter view with the trunk open. This shot shows the versatility of the Suburban with the pass through to the passenger compartment, and the fold-down jump seats behind the sliding second-row seat.

Here is a front quarter and engine shot from the 2016 orphan show. Don has added power steering and a helper fan to the car. He uses it for parades, and the fan helps prevent overheating.

Here is a shot of the dashboard in Don's car. You can see the extra switch panel he has added to the left side just below the regular panel. That includes his fan controls.
