    Ok... Light pole climbing pics are in an album here: <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/marv_springer>http://community.webshots.com/user/marv_springer</a>

    Why don't you ask Dave about the time he was driving my Blazer up the pole and it fell /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif off .... from a position where the tire was well over 4' up the pole...! Oh well... I think he bought the beer that night so it was Ok... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    hmm... I wanna do that in my suburban too!! hehe

    so many projects I want to get going, so little time/money.... projects now include:
    -beefing the 454 in the C20 up to 425 HP, and 700 Ft/lbs,
    -Springer suspension in the K20
    -dropping 454 into the K20,
    -buy a trailer for moving the K20
    -D60 for the K20, Gear swaps to 4.56's
    -Crossover/hydro ram assist steering,
    -beef 454 in K20 to some obscene number
    -something stupid like putting a NP203 gerbox infront of a GV overdrive, infront of a 205 T case... ( I'll only have to carry 1 replacement driveshaft then, cause they'll prolly both be the same length)

    and other such assorted projects...

    -Rich
