    Re: ck5\'er spotted...

    no, there is a stock-ish white K5 that is around the shop all the time but I dont even know whos it is... since we all start/get off at different times and stuff at my shop I dont really get to talk to other guys much about what they drive. Anyway, its a decent K5 and sorta reminds me of mine before I started messing with it. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Considering gas prices, I wont be driving my rig to work any time soon... $2/gallon is steep when you only get 10 mpg and you end up stuck in rush-hour commutes a lot. doh! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif It'd be cheaper to buy an early 90s geo metro, tune it up really well, strip out everything but the drivers seat and roll with it. Thats prolly what Im gonna end up doing... cause once I move out I wont have access to my dads little ranger and its 24 mpg anymore. Anyway, i bet a well tuned stripped older metro could get like 55-60 mpg... that'd be niiiice. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    AFA your speed goes... I dunno, maybe it just seemed fast because I spend all day lumbering around in a heavy as heck armored truck. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif On 84 I actually got it all the way up to 68 mph once... floored on a slight downhill. Thats about all she's got. Whats neat is that I can drive that fast iun a 50mph zone right next to a cop and they dont give us any poopoo. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
