    Only took me like 3 months to pay it off, but $1400 later, I finally have this flatbed '81 K30.

    It has a stock 454 with Edelbrock carb, SM465/NP205, 14-bolt and Dana 60, 3.73 gears.

    Definitely not pretty, but it runs good. Plus I finally hit my peak goal number of 15 Dana 60 fronts. So now I can stop and feel whole now.

    15 is my optimal number to have. ;) (no real reason behind that... other than 15 of the original fleet I want to have Dana 60's under). If I got rid of one... all I'd do is go in search of another. Hmmm... maybe I'll go for 16.
