    Just signed up. Owned my 69 blaz for 1yr. It's been my daily driver since I bought in on ebay last year in Wilmington NC. I was hooked after that eighteen hr drive. Great running, great looking truck, but thiers always room for improvements. I hope some of you guys can help me out. My biggest promblem is getting my wife convinced this is an investment, after I figure that out I plan on investing some money in figuring out how I can keep my frame from tweaking and always throwing my doors out of line. Look foreward to chats.
    Thanks,

    good luck with the wife... unless you have the skillz to do super high quality custom body work or offroad fabrication, I don't think you'll ever get more out of a K5 than you put into it. I assume that'd be the goal, if you call it an "investment". They are great trucks... just warning ya ahead of time. Lots of peeps have found this out after sinking $10-15k into their rig and when they go to sell it they can't get $6k. doh!
