    What parts are you looking for? A friend has a pretty good collection of Chevy parts. There is Car Country in Newton, and Sandhill in Tama.

    What is your Major? ISU Grad, myself. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I'm in LAS for now but I'm looking at a mechanical engineering degree, depending on circumstances in 4 years I would like to also get an electromechanical engineering degree but only MTU offers the classes necessary for it.

    As for parts, I need doors and fenders for my '83 K5, and I like to check out the local pic-a-part lots in the event I get lucky and find a truck with an NV4500 in it (I hate autos...especially the 700r4....with a passion...). If I could score a 5-speed that would hold up to some good torque (when I modify the 6.2) and is 4x4, I would be more than happy to pay $450-500 for it but right now all the NV4500's I've found are well over $1000 + shipping
