What’s next for the Creamsicle? Craig goes through rides pretty quickly, so chances are pretty good it will head to the auction block, or he could just keep it for a bit and cruise it around town until he decides to move on to something new. He’s one of those guys who either keeps something forever or flips it quick, it just depends on that gut feeling he gets. The verdict is still out on the Suburban, but whatever he decides to do, we’re just glad he let us put it in front of our cameras for a few quick pics. CT
