    Goin\' on Ebay

    Well, it's going. Got word that the house is probably going to be ours around 12/22, so I gotta get motivated to work n it...
    I'm posting the K5 on Ebay in a couple days. I washed it tonight, I'm cleaning it out tomorrow night, then probably around wednesday, I'll have it fully photoed and running online... One of the drawbacks is that the way a certain situation has arranged itself, I'm going to end up splitting the money for it with a shop...

    Unless anyone in here is interested?? I know I can get about $2500 for it up here in my area if I wax it, so I'm starting it on ebay for about that, or maybe $2000.

    She's a good truck, she's just going to die (rust) lonely if I don't let her go (and as fellow CK5er's, you know this is hard to do!)...

    Yeah, I just took her out for a gas-up before work tomorrow, and I'm totally bumming... She's running beautifully, strong as an ox, fast (in a lumbering-goon sort of way), and so darn comfortable!!

    Ratch, c'mon now, get ahold of yourself!!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif What's a couple thousand bucks in the grand scheme of things? I think if you wanted to keep her you could find a way.....

    I odn't know man, I'm tryin. Maybe mentioning it on here was a subconscious cry for help...

    But really, the way I see it, it's costing me too much right now to keep using it to commute, and the only place I have to park it is the street or the grass in front of my side yard, which is under a sap-dripping tree, and a flood area (bad drainage=accelerated rust!)...

    I'm trying to find a way, but I'm too afraid she's going to turn 90% brown by the time I can get back to wrenching...

    **** that noise Ratch. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Cut that damn tree down /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif and build a temperary structer to keep her out of the elements even if it means useing ugly blue tarps and lowering the property value in the neiborhood.
