    Last summer I redid my engine (pic below), now next summer me and a buddy are going to redo both of our trucks. I am saving up all of my money then around next may/june I am going to start buying all kinds of goddies for the good old K5. I was just going to redo the floor pan but now I am going to do all of the body work and paint it and add a lift kit, cam it along with a bunch of other fun stuff. I want my truck for the 4th of July this year then right after that I am going to start tearing it down. I hope to be done with all of the hard stuff around the end of July I hope to have the truck done by my B-day sep 18.
    It kind of sucks because when I had my engine all done last JULY I said I will NEVER pull this engine again. Now I am going to have to gut the truck to paint it.

    My friend (I will try to get him to join) he is building up a 1979 1500 chevy flat bed. we are going to get him the same kind of engine that I have (only stock) then we are going to build it the way that he wants. He is after a lot of low end power.

    It never ends. Tho I wont be pulling out my motor to paint. I have a rusty '73 POS so I aint worried about it being purdy. But you always get the need for more power, more gear, better flex, and more traction. As well as recovery and safety equipment.

    geez, I thought tearing it apart and putting it back together was all the fun. Oh wait, breaking it, then fixing it is all the fun. Everything in between is just driving.
