Re: Gonna hurl, ORC/Chevy main page
Hey Shags, wow, things have changed on the home page. Didn't know Shawn was gone[img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. I knew he had stuff going on with his personal life, so I shouldn't be surprised. I won't even go near the IFS forum.
I sold the Blazer in late May, and decided against getting a K5......for now. I'd either have to go elsewhere in the country and drive it back to get a rust fee one, or pay an exorbinant amount to buy one that someone already did that with here in Michigan. So I picked up my buddy's 93 Geo Tracker 4x4 for $1400 and put the rest into my debt, which is almost gone.[img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Since then I've mainly been playing over on the ORC/Suzuki forum and another one for Trackers/Sidekicks/Vitaras/Escudos/Grand Vitaras/etc. Fun little vehicle, very easy to work on and well made. Suzuki actually designed these things with the thought that people might actually drive these things offroad. Just like Toyotas, they're overbuilt to a sense. You can run 31-33's on these things and go rock crawling and not be too worried about it. Itsy bitsy engine might have something to do with that, but hey........[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] People just don't give them any credit because of their image. They get lumped in with all the non low range car based "Cute Utes". However, while one of the busiest boards on the site, the Suzuki BBS is 95% Samurai stuff, so I decided to start poking around here again. The last issue of Four Wheeler kinda brought my interest back up in the K5's thanks to that red 72 on the cover and the Spring Thing run in Oklahoma.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I'll be around.
