Thanks for posting that as I don't do Facebook.

You should join, if only to keep up with lively groups like "I Love My Chinook".

Ditto for Pinterest. Just create a throwaway Gmail address if you don't want to use your regular one.

I wonder what the other mold is that's just behind/ahead of it?

Apparently it's the Glacier mold.

Turns out that when Phil Rizzio bought the rights to the Chinook name, Gary Lukehart insisted that along with the new Sprinter based models, the classic ones also had to be brought back.

The new Chinook company plans to begin building an updated Glacier first, then do the same with the Concourse. They hope to build 300 total a year.

I think they're just waiting on some city and state tax abatements and funds before hiring.

Of course, the Glaciers will likely start around $200,000.

I think I'll stick to buying used classic models :)

Unless a rich relative leaves me a ton of money, that is.
