    Or at least what they think is gold. Stopped to look at a K5 today. Looked great when I was flying by at 50. Still looked decent up close. Had a tractor paint job(cheap enamel you get for farm tractors), Kubota orange I would say. I kind of liked the way it looked. Would have made a sweet street/trail rig. Minimal rust, except near the tailgate(as always in PA). The exhaust was over half gone. Tailpipe was still sticking out behind the tire, but completely rotted off of the muffler. Don't think there were any exhaust hangers left, just the muffler hanging off of the manifolds. Didn't look much more than that. Had some almost brand new 33" all terrains and black rockcrawlers on it. Inspection expired 1/00(PA is yearly inspection and emissions, so 7 years out :doah:).

    So I grab the number and call the guy up. What does he want? $3500!!!! I was figuring at worst he'd be asking 2k for it, hoping he'd say 1k. Guess the S10 is getting finished afterall. He didn't even say it "runs great". Instead it was "it kind of lacks power, think its the stale gas and needs a tuneup". Some people just think their own bowel movements are made of gold. Damn thing was like an 84 with 71,000 on it. Decent mileage, but come on?

    Yeah but i like guys like that sometimes.

    I wrecked my k5 in a not my fault crash, guy says he would give me 3200 for it because he can find them for 2500 in the auto trader, so i show him the auto trader with a half decent truck and the guy wants 7500!!!

    good to find a middle ground :D


    tell the guy you got a grand for him when he wants it.

    then when he calls in a year look it over again and offer him 500 :D :haha:

    eh, I need to finish the S10. Just if I could find a convenient not terrible $500 K5, I would get it.

    I always hear you talking about your s10, do you got any pictures of it or a thread somewhere that I missed? Its sounds pretty cool.
