As some of you know, I’ve been searching for a cleanish K5 to daily/play with. This is not easy to do, especially in Nebraska. I was at work this past Friday when I came across this ‘88 k5 in Lakewood, Colorado. Got a wild hair up my arse and got up early Sunday morning to make the drive from Lincoln. It ended up following me home. That was a long day.
It’s a 1988 k5 Base model 350tbi 4 speed. The 4 speed is the main reason I bought it, obviously. It looked really nice in the ad and like always they’re never as nice as the photos show. There’s some rust spots and a laundry list of little things that need fixed. It had supposedly been sitting for the last 5 years. I’m starting to believe this cause the gas smelled horrible and it’s starting to develop some leaks within one day of driving it.
Aside from all the issues it’s really fun to drive and I like it so far. We’ll see how far I go with it.
