    I am totally psyched... I just paid for my very first K5 (should go and pick it up sat once I have all of the registration paperwork done here)! I have a nice car already (99 10th Anaversary Edition Mazda Miata) but I wanted a truck and I have always loved the k5... so when I found this one and bargained it to $900, I knew this was the one... like I said, it's a 76... 350 with quadrajet, edlebrok intake and headers, dual exhaust with cherry bombs... TH205 with dana 44 up front and 12 bolt in the back... ugly black with some minor body damage (should get a new right rear quarter panel, but that would mean finding someone who can weld it in there for me, so that is going to have to wait)... and the front clip was taken from a 1/2 pickup (looks like a 78 or 79) so I need to get some K5 badging to make it complete... get rid of the chyanne stuff :)

    so hello all - there is a new member of the pack...

    I bet its going to feel realllllll weird to drive the Miata for a while and then hop in the Blazer right away and drive it. Just a little different.

    Get some ramps and pull the back seat and you got a garage for the Miata!
