    Eight folks showed up in a shopping center parking lot to bull$hit and grab a bite to eat at a restaurant nearby. If I'm understanding correctly, there're more folks in the NoVA/Metro DC area, but only us eight posted up, and showed up. The attendance was, in no particular order:

    scrappyK5 (Mike)
    formud (Julian) (from Delware:eek1: )
    muddybuddy (James)
    protechK5 (Andrew)
    twoslo4five0 (Jay) (from Richmond)
    bluecollarjock (Matt)
    fwc (Frank)
    big94GMC (....me - Chris)

    These are a great buncha guys. I hope to be able to organize something about once a month, 4-6 weeks, or whatever times work out, with these folks. I think the general concensus among the group was either half-completed rigs, or (in my case) no rig at all. There may have been a completed rig or two in the stable, but, majority rules. Here're a couple pics that were snapped off with my camera. We took a group shot, standing next to our trucks, but not everyone was in it, so I won't put it up.

    (EH-hemmmm....SOMEONE showed up in their F*rd work truck:doah:!!!) hahaha Nah, it was all good. We won't mention the offender, it was just good to have a decent turn out. (It was scrappyk5!)



    Here's the GM group, minus a F*rd truck, and a late model ZJ:

    "Yep....They're all 350's....(and one 6.2)....":

    We all voted fwc's '91 to be the cleanest, this proves it:

    [​IMG]

    Hey, what can I say....I have a brand preference - they're sexier!:D (me on left, fwc on right):

    Anyway, it was a good afternoon.... Told alotta jokes, talked a bunch about trucks, and sucked a little bit of helium! Yep....a good afternoon....

    dude, you need some clear corners and a good polish on those headlights and turn signals. make a world of difference in your truck.

    its cool to see a large group get together like that. but what's with the 2wd Burb? :haha:

    Trust me, bro....I know, I know.... I'm having to deal with it until I can do it all at once. In the meantime, nighttime driving isn't all it's cracked up to be.



    Those pics aren't on my camera.... I'm sure someone'll post up. Really, though, it ain't that big of a deal, James - fully locked on asphault with a short wheelbase and flexy suspension will do that. I could have goosed the skinny pedal (broke traction), and it would have fallen right back down. Fun $hit, though! hahaha

    Not a bad turnout. I'll be moving up there this spring, so maybe I can show up for the next one. I've got to get my rockers replaced first though, my doors are sagging almost a 1/2 from front to rear!

    Yea that use to belong to the guy that got me interested in K-5's. Actually it was his wifes. He coached my kids baseball team.

    Remember that time I refered you to HRM. He use to work there, his other K5 is still there. Its nice but its for show. Thats funny, its a small world
