    My wife is hung up on the idea of parking the ol' K5 out front of a nice home in a "fancy" neighborhood. She cringes everytime she sees a modern home... because the first thing she invisions is the K5 parked in the driveway with the trailer!

    Here is what I need... Can I get pics of every K5 sitting out in front of its house in all its mall-cruiser glory? I need to convince her it can be done!

    Help me out here ppl! Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    HOW THE HECK CAN YOU PEOPLE STAND THEN 30FT LONG DRIVEWAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hell my drive is 65ft and I wish it was longer.

    I don't know if this will help or hurt. What you can only see the tanks of is a 1959 22ft Airstream.

    What I don't have is a picture of the 1970 Pontiac LeMans Convertible in the garage.

    I GOT WAY TO MUCH STUFF! LOL /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Next house will be a side entry garage with a privacy fence so I can tuck the trailer behind it .

    Our front drive is 60x20, back is 20x60, still not enough room! We have a gravel pad out back that has a 25' Jayco camper, 12foot utility trailer and 6th garage (5 car attached) for the mower and stuff! We are getting ready to build a 42x30 two level barn /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Here's my two in front of my apartment. Granted its not a house, but its still my abode. I wish I could say the boats are mine!

    I keep my dirt bike in the bed of my DD on a regular basis too!

    Haven't had one complaint yet. My grey K5 is loud and nasty when I crank it up. I do that about once a week. No one has said anything to me about any of the three.

    I'll have to get one in the next few days. Our house is fairly big and well-kept, and I love parking my bucket of bolts right in front for everyone to see (although most of the time I'm not allowed /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif)

    a set of those plastic Kmart hubcaps will brighten your ride up plenty.
    no way a woman will see your beast as anything but an eyesore
    buy a house in the ghetto, that will show her who is boss.

    on the same note...
    I went to a friend of the wife's fancy nieghborhood home for a small afternoon gathering.
    he live 2 doors from an old aquaintance of mine who happens to have a 10sec Malibu he recently put plates/lights on.
    of course I drifted over there and next thing you know he has this beast fired up in suburbia for the mandatory "hot lap".
    strictly for educational purposes of course(EGT was worrying him)
    the disproving glares from every suburbanite were priceless he did not hesitate from "getting on it" at every straight piece of road.
    I think his wife has resigned herself to the fact that loud outragious cars are part of his life.
     
  15. That Bronco would make anyones house lose value !! I sure hope it is an old friends mistake !!
