    Boo Hoo - It\'s Blue

    A couple months ago my 69 stated to breath a little blue smoke in the mornings while warming up. Now it be puff the blue stuff (lightly) even when warm.
    How long do I have before I NEED (or should) do something about it?
    I belive this is going to be the final straw. I have over $12k into the truck already, and I'll be lucky to sell it for $7k. I just can't rebuild the motor. It doesn't make sense. Not to mention I've had it a year and NEVER been able to put it in 4x4 for one reason or another. Great investment huh?
    Looks like I need to sell the orange beast, but before I do, what can I do about the blue smoke, and and how long can I keep driving her?
    Thanks - a sad, soon to be ex k5 member.
