    On the ranch I hunt, the owner of the property opened up a few old logging trails, which my GF and I explored thoroughly. We found an old Pot growers shack, a stripped "79 chevy longbed in a gulch, a few inline 6 cylinder engines and transmissions in a burned out slash pile, and this OLD Chevy pickup. I was wondering if anyone could tell by the photo what year it is. This is my GF poking around looking at all the "cool" stuff. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    By any chance did you make a map of the area?

    That cab/body style was used from 48-55 or so. Best place to look would be www.stovebolt.com to try to find some comparison's.

    They made theose from 47-54, the only real way to narrow it down is the grille(54's had a cross more or less) and vent windows (51 and up).

    Thanks for the replies, fellas. I was mostly just curious. The GF asked me if we could "fix it up" /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif. I like finding stuff like this. I start thinking about how, once upon a time, it was sitting brand new on a showroom floor. What would it have been like to take a cruise in it back then. I really enjoy nostalgia. Whenever I find an old shack, some old mining equipment, or an abandoned vehicle like this one, I try to imagine what it was like to live in the time that this old thing was actually new. There are quite a few old homesteads on the property where I hunt and I never get enough of hiking out to them and poking around. Always wondering what life was like "back then."

    I have thought EXACTLY the same thing. An not just limited to my K5, but every old mining camp, homesteaders shack, abandoned vehicle, etc. But, yeah, I really would like to know the history of my K5, from it's birth in '73 until October '02 when I bought it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
