    Well today is somewhat a sad day for me, the K5 is in pretty sad shape. I have over the last couple years bought just a ton of parts for it with very little time to work on it.. So I went out today and bought an S-10 pick up (2wd) to use as my DD. In the k-5 I was getting 6MPG in the S-10 I will get about 18, gas prices are killing me at this time. So I decided to put her away for a while. The new motor is done and been dynoed, the SM465 is on the bench in pieces being rebuilt, have a brand new 208 case. New doors, fenders, inner fenders, and cowl induction hood, floor pans, and a few other interior items that are at the shop, but not yet installed. So I took her on her farewell run this evening to the shop to get some work done. It is really strange of all the rigs I have owned that this is hard to know she is decommisioned for an undetermined amount of time, I love her and am going to miss running her everyday. Damn it I'm crushed, time to go drown my sorrows in the bottom of a bottle. But she's at the shop waiting for me to show up tommorrow and get her stipped down nekid. Thanks for listening..

    The bright side

    Look at the bright side. first of all a A+ reason to drink some cold one's. Second, I am sure she will be resurected as a fresh truck. Sounds like you are going to take her down to the frame.

    Fewer drinks = more gas $$$$....:waytogo:
