Is that the smell of a crisp autumn morning, or is it just me?

I should point out that both I and Truck Yeah's Andrew Collins grew up in Massachusetts suburbs during the 1990s and it looked exactly like this. Hell, there are houses in Connecticut that still look like this.

I don't know for certain that GM actually took these press shots in New England, but it sure as hell looks like it. This is peak 1990s New England suburbia right here and I kind of love it.
