    THe whole story?? I will have to let the owner spill those beans. I heard it was one hell of a ride. I was, well a little intoxicated and sleeping when it happened. They got it home the same the same way it came in. Well sorta.

    *Pay special attention to the beautiful 72 in the back ground* Ill follow up with that in a minute.

    I dont think it was the air time, i think it was the sudden stop combined with 5500lbs behind it.....;)

    OUCH on that D44!!!

    i see some 4" D60 hubs sticking out of those rims on that first gen.. and it has a winch.. he built it to wheel and not to go mall crawling.
    His story probably goes something like mine....
    The first dent was probably an accident and then it's all downhill from there.
    It looked cherry from 15 or 20 feet away, but there's rust or bondo on every panel so i might as well have some fun with it before i try 'restoring' the body.. especially since i built it to be a capable wheeler... the fenders are already hacked for bigger tires.
    Its the D60's fault. it all happened right after it went in. The truck just wants to go places now that it has no business going. :grin:
    Blame chevrolet for making the K5 one of the most capable rigs ever built. :blush: :grin: they either get built to wheel or restored for collectors. Theres a lot less first gen restoration guys than there are mod'ing and wheelin and bashin guys.. Its similar to the difference among camaro owners whether your a true restoration guy or you 'hacked' your car and 'ruined it' doing the pro street tub'd & caged thing.

    i get it, simililar pressures applied though.

    shame on the 1st gen. those have always been my favorite. my 1st truck was a '69 short box, & i still have it. i couldn't bring my self to tear one up so i bought a '75 k5 to wheel in.

    Ouch.

    A Suburban needs only 33's to do similar damage. :D At least that one looked like a cleaner break than air time in a Sub. Must have been fun loading it. We had to end up swapping whole front axles on site.

    From what i understand, the HOLE he fell in wasnt quite big enough for the whole K5, just half of it. This did happen at about 1:30 AM...... And for some reason the words "liquid courage" come to my mind.
