    In all the confusing trades between myself and people I know, I got back today an '84 Chevy that I had before.

    Let's start way back...
    In 2002-2003 I had a '78 Chevy truck,
    [​IMG]

    that I traded off 2 times and got it back 2 times, and finally traded it a 3rd and final time. Jon had this '84 K5 Blazer... I got it and he got the '78.
    [​IMG]

    Jon later traded the green '78 Chevy truck in for a lifted green '79 Chevy shortbed fleetside.
    [​IMG]

    That's Phase 1.


    I got the '84 Chevy K20 in July 2004 from Alfredo in Moses Lake. (shown on trailer)
    [​IMG]
    I traded the '84 Chevy K20 to Chuck minus motor for an '80 K20 with motor (rougher body)...
    [​IMG]
    and then I traded the '80 K20 to Jon for the green '79 K10 shortbed minus motor. (shown on trailer towed by Brutus)
    [​IMG]
    That was phase 2.


    I fixed up the '79 Shortbed and sold it,
    [​IMG]

    Chuck fixed up and lifted the '84 K20 and drove it,
    [​IMG]

    and Jon fixed up and lifted the '80 K20 and drove it.
    [​IMG]

    And the last phase of trucks switching owners:

    Jon sold the '80 K20 to me and then I re-sold it.

    Chuck's motor in the '84 K20 went out, and he sold the '84 to Jon who was truckless after he got rid of the '80. Chuck then used the money to buy an '83 K30 Diesel. In the meantime I had bought an '84 K5 from Dillon.
    [​IMG]

    Then Chuck wanted the '84 K5, so I traded the '84 K5 lifted with 3/4 ton axles for the '83 K30 Diesel. I got the '83 K30 and lifted it a little and am driving that now (shown here dropping off a K5 at Alfredo's in Moses Lake, where the '84 K20 came from to begin with).
    [​IMG]

    Jon put a 350 in the '84, and it started knocking. Now today, I traded him Brutus for the '84 K20... so now the '84 has come back to me.

    Brutus:

    The '84 K20... mine again.

    Who knows where it will go from here...

    I was wondering about that... they suddenly worked for me even though they didn't before. So I figured I'd try.

    I'll try again with attachments:
    Phase 1 of trades: My green '78 longbed gets traded for '84 K5 blue Blazer...

    Then Jon trades green '78 longbed in for '79 lifted shortbox, also green

    Phase 2 of trades.

    I get silver '84 K20... trade it minus motor to Chuck for multi-colored '80 K20 with motor... and trade it to Jon for his green '79 Shortbed minus motor.

    Phase 3 of trades.

    I fix up the green 79 Shortbed and sell it.

    Chuck fixes up the silver '84 K20 with a 454 and lifts it and drives it.

    Jon fixes up the '80 K20, sprays it primer gray, puts a 454 in it, lifts it and drives it.

    Then I buy the '80 K20 from Jonny and sell it and I go buy an '84 K5 from Dillon. I put a lift and 3/4 ton axles under the '84 red/white K5 Blazer.

    Chuck sells the silver '84 K20 to Jon minus motor, and Chuck buys an '83 K30 6.2 Diesel. I trade the '84 K5 red/white for the '83 K30.

    Lastly, today I trade Brutus, a '77 Crew Cab, to Jonny for the '84 K20... meaning this is the 2nd time I've gotten a truck from Jon that was mine before he had it.

    Now, did any of these attachments show up?
