    I hate this about k5\'s

    when people "upgrade" the front clip to a newer one /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif. I am shopping for a 70-74 k5 and have
    seen some ugly "upgraded" ones.

    Why do poeple do this? Do they think it looks better or is it a fix to a front end collision?

    ok, i'm done.

    I have a 76 K5 and thought of swapping on a 89 to 91 front clip becouse I like the way they look.

    probably easier to find a newwer clip than an old,or just the fact a newer makes it seem new. i like both,i have a 79 with a 86 cab and a 79 front end WTF?? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto

    i think i am talking more to a 73 with a 91 clip type of thing. Well, i guess any 70's would be my gripe.

    No kidding the 73-80's kicked ass. They look so much tougher than the 81-91's. Those looked so chincy and weak.
