    My Dad bought my 1985 Jimmy in 1990, so 12 years now. It still isn't "mine" but he had promised me one of his 2 Harley Davidson's, but now he has neither. So the Jimmy is mine. Now I have to procure me a Hog somehow. Seeing that my name is Harley, I got to have one.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    My folks bought a 73 when I was in junior high, I'm 38 now. I bought it from them when I was in the USAF in 83. Then a few years later came the 84, then the 87 that I have now. You know, I must really like these things to have owned 3 of them. I even have an 88 Surburban as a family car now.

    I bought mine when I was 20, and I'm still 20[​IMG], so I haven't had it too long. My Monte SS is my main money pit, but I'm selling that so I will be able to concentrate on the Blazer.

    I sold my 91 Stepside 350 SS 1/2 ton when I bought my first house, because my truck payment w/insurance was 2/3 the cost of my mortgage. I bought my 84 the next day, and she's still with me!!!![​IMG]

    I was 21 when I got the K5 and I'll be 30 in July.....
