I bought my first K5! (pics)

$100 for this beauty. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
350, half ton, totally CRAP body, top is okay, looks to be lifted 4" with blocks in rear, no title, ran when it was parked I'm told. But I'm told from the guy who bought some property with this gem in the blackberries. Last licensed in 99 so its not TERRIBLY old at least... not sure what the plan is really yet. Maybe I'll cannibalize some of it for the Suburban(which my brother just drove today and discovered water shooting out of a freeze plug... yay [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wall.gif[/img])

... I got the "DUMPING PROHIBITED" sign with it!

Re: I bought my first K5! (pics)

I paid a $100 for my first one too! I stripped it and kept the parts I wanted. Then, sold the rest for $300.

Last month I got a suburban for free and did the same.

It's a good way to get parts and mechanical experience from tearing 'em down.
