    FIRST GEN K5\'s ON TV AND IN MAGAZINES

    I was watching MTV when the new Offspring music video came on, "Defy You" Its a good song so i watched the video and about 30 seconds from the end there is an orange first gen K5 with the top off sitting in the background for the rest of the song. I almost crapped my self. Also in the new Petersons 4-wheel and Off-Road Magazine i noticed a few first get K5's and 67-72 Trucks. Just thought i would let you guys know our trucks are getting extra publicity these days.

    There used to be a comercial for some perfume or something that had a nice Orange first Gen K/5. It had big tires wrapped around the ralley wheels. Also, in the movie "Beautiful Girls," Matt Dillion's character drives a 1st Gen with a half top! <a target="_blank" href=http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Hills/1869/miramatt.GIF>http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Hills/1869/miramatt.GIF</a>

    Yeah, I fell for those movie teaser shots....

    Last time someone posted them, I bought the DVD thinking there would be lots of cool K5 scenes to enjoy. It's all over in less than 30 seconds, and the rest of the movie was insanely annoying...not a single cool vehicle shows up anywhere else in the film.

    I felt cheated.

    Yep wifey bought me the DVD since the red jimmy looks like mine and the orange blazer looks like her brothers.
