    Here's some pics of my 71 K5. The engine is done except I haven't put the power steering on it or fan shroud.

    It's on stock suspension right now with 32's but as soon as money becomes available I can start working on that. I'm just happy to be able to drive it now.

    I'd love to go but I don't know what it is or where it is. Please inform me. Also, are the springs you have for sale 52 inch or 56 inch? And how much?

    Here is the link to the thread where we are planning it all out.

    As far as the springs go, they are front springs so they are like 46" inches i think. I never measured them. I think I have them spoken for though. However if you are interseted, shoot me an email. My address is in my profile.

    I would keep it off except that the temp steadily increases while sitting still parked or in traffic. On the highway 180 is normal but once stopped it steadily moves to 210 and I get going before seeing how high it will get. If I were to put the motor under load at low speed it would heat up quick so I think i'll stick with it.

    Anywhere from 180 to 210 is exceptable but I prefer to keep it around the 180 range.
