    I am considering selling my K5. I have another project vehicle that I believe will make up for the loss I will be taking. I would like the opinions of others here on how much my rig would be worth. There are pics on my members ride page. The p[ics are a little out dated, I will be posting newer ones soon.

    The Blazer is an 89. Has plenty of rust. Is a Silverado. The body other little things need some attention, but for the most part its a good truck.

    My first feelings on a price was was too much but my realistic guess I think would be in the area of about $4k.

    The other project is a 69 TLC with a 383 stroker w/TPI.

    The TLC sounds like a sweet vehicle.... I would love one in my garage... but I think right now you would get a misrable price for your truck [​IMG]. With the economy on edge and gas price all over the place it seems like anything Blazer or older truck wise has been dirt cheap lately. Good luck... post some pics of the TLC if you get it

    I know what your saying about gas prices and such. I have way more money tied up in this K5 than I want to even think about. Selling it would be more than just a monetary loss, its almost like one of the family.

    The TLC is/was my fathers project. It has been in the making for over 6 years now and has yet to be driven. We had 3 of them and combined all the best parts into one. Added a Racing Head Service 383 stroker and a newly "rebuilt" TPI. We located some seats from a Montero that have a sort of air ride system like what you would find in a Peterbuilt or a Kenworth. The list goes on and on. Anyhow to make a long story longer, my father was involved in a major wreck and has lost all interest in finishing the project. If I can come up with the cash, I can finish it and have a new toy.

    I figured I could try and sell the K5 or I could try and sell some of my rifles. I would hate to sell any of them, but......
