    How many K5\'s have you owned?

    Living in the rust belt, I have had several Blazers to finally end up with a rust free one, my 1986 cucv form Cali. Here is my list of K5's starting with my 1st. 1976 K5 chev, 1979 K5 chev, 1986 K5 chev, 1985 GMC Jimmy K5(did a complete TBI conversion on that one), 1976 K5, (Diffrent one, I still have it), 1977 K5(Parts only, cut it up), 1974 K5 chev, and my last purchase a rust free CUCV 1986. That makes eight in 12 years, and still have two. How many have you CK5'ers had? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    (2) My first K5 was a 1972. It had a 454, sm465/NP-205, 1 ton axles. 4", 6", 10" lift and verous tires from stock size up to 39.5's. I now own a 1976 K5 and am broke, so building this one is taking alot longer. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif, but I'm having more fun, and getting alot of ideas from this site. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: How many K5\'s have you owned?

    77 Blazer, bought it 90 and sold it 10 months later for $300 more than I paid for it.

    Realized shortly after I sold it I wanted another one.../forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Spent 6 years half looking for another and finally got my current 81 Jimmy.

    Bought an 82 blazer from rocko (parted it out)

    Got a 74 Blazer for free from another member a few months later (Talldogg). I wanted to eventually resto it and have it as a rust free Cali truck for family duties...had to sell it to catch up on our mortgage while I was unemployed/forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    1979 Original Capn Insano, cut and modified, but useless up here to me.

    1980 K5 Parts truck

    1986 K5 Free, tried to swap all my stuff into, but too rusty, so we turned it into a driveway demolition derby car. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    1987 K5 currently. Had all the right parts, but some rough execution in places. Working to tidy everything up and it'll be my new DD/wheeler rig. Love it, and 98% rust free!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Re: How many K5\'s have you owned?

    1st--1971 K5 primed gray, 6" lift, 35" Boggers other than that bone stock.

    2nd--1987 K5 had it for 6 months. Discovered it had major cancer issues after ripping up the rear carpet, then sold it.

    3rd--My Current 1989 K5, I have had it for a little over a year now. It has been through many changes and is still going through more.

    2 and 1/3 /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    79 was first K5. Rcently sold that one.
    75 was One DOLLAR. That's my main trail truck.
    1/3 interest in a 74 that's being parted. BigJBear has 1/3 as well.

    I also have a 88 R20 454 Burb that's all original with 74k on it.

    Re: How many K5\'s have you owned?

    One for me. But it's really been about 10 different trucks over the years.

    We did a count not too long ago and had 14 GM trucks on the place. But only 2 or 3 were K5's. Fortunately, several are one tons.
