The stats from the article are pretty cool:

Suburban has appeared in 1,765 films over 67 years
Suburban has appeared on television at least once every year since 1956
Suburban has appeared in at least one movie every year since 1960

I'm sure a lot of these, especially in recent times, are paid placement, but it's still kind of fun.

As for the others, the nomination process excludes many of what we would call "iconic" cars. Nominees are required to be in the industry for a specific length of time, so that would exclude a car like the Bullitt Mustang, which was only in a single film. Nomination also requires agreement from the nominees' management team and there is an ongoing maintenance cost of having a star.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a pay-to-play award so I’m sure it was a GM paid endorsement.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

Or it could have been recognized because it is the longest lived name plate in automotive history having been in continuous production since 1935. Even through the WWII years. Pretty impressive.

Always liked Burbs. I had a 84,93,05, and 08. Most truck boxes are empty. Might as well throw in some seats and a roof! laugh

Any other Burb Freaks out there?

A Suburban is pretty iconic. Didn't they begin in 1934?

According to Wikipedia, the Suburban debuted in 1933 as a mostly wooden bodied carryall available only to the National Guard and the CCC. It seems it became available to the public in 1935. Interesting stuff. A friend of mine has a 2013 1 ton version 3500.

Wow looks great. Nice!
Have you ever got a police ticket for the illegal red lights on the front? You would around here, and KITT wouldn't be able to "talk" his way out of it.

Dave has KITT send hypnotic sound waves into the mind of unsuspecting auto parts store managers' to make them give him cheap or even free oil.
