Ladies driving K5\'s/pickups... So I am driving to work today down I-205 (driving my sh!tty commuter car) and I pull along side this good-looking K5, white with a blue stripe down the side, white top, 2nd gen, good looking ride. Looks like the owner has actually had it off-road also which is even better. So I pull forward and take a gander up at the driver and what do I see... but a femme. Now being the type of guy that has always cut everyone from the same cloth I didnt really think anything of it other than... "yeah... How you Dowin?". /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif So, this is yet another sexists statement... ladies that really can/do drive thier rigs are a serious turn on... Yikes... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Oh, and to make this worthy of the garage: OR/Wa local shop makes good - Ricks Garage in Vancouver Wa (360)693-7862 is the place to go if you need something done you cant do on your own. I had the K5 towed /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif there a couple weeks ago with some carb issues. Would idle in or out of gear, etc... well, Rick found a couple vac leaks, tore down the carb (found metal filings in the idle circuit) rejetted the carb, re-curved the distributor, set timing, set the choke and a few other things, worked on it all day, etc... and only charged me a pittance (under $250.00). Whats the best is, I took it back last Friday because it wasnt quite right yet, still ran a little funny, so, he worked on it all day again, got it running better/great, and didnt charge me a dime. Told me what to look/listen for and if I saw/heard anything to bring it back. So, they have my seal of approval... and I HIGHLY recommend them.
