I just got my hopes up the week before looking at an 84 or 82 k5 blue and white listed for 2k it was somewhere deep in con I got there it had body rot bondoed and spraypainted (buffed) the talegate was rotted and rewelded by some hack the interior smelt...mousey:confused: the tires were passanger tires all dry rotted(covered in tire shine):rolleyes: and the engine was warm when i got there i drove it around the lot parked it and tried...TRIED to start it again put the pedal all the way down and it roared to life with black smoke and ACORNS...ACORNS!!!!:eek: shooting out the tail pipe
the guy told me stories of him driveing to florida on a single tank and how he never abused it and had had it sence new and that i could redgister it as a station wagon

I offered the guy $500 and he said $1500 i said no thanks and drove back home (3hour drive)

I really wasnt digging the older style bucket seat leaver either

And i was dead set on a 6.2 truck for a while and thought i was going nowhere after looking at a couple of ripe corn beef destroyers


I got my jimmy off of craigslist it was listed for$1200 and the next day the add came up $1200 OBO:cool:

the add stated the batterys were dead and it needed a wheel cylinder

I got it with 40k ORIGINAL MILES no rot rust or dents for $900:D

Mind you the 8 days following i put another $1300 in new parts (not labor)
ball joints tie rod ends calipers wheel cylinders pads master cylinder batteries belts oil wheel bearings fuel filter i cant rember the rest BUT now i have a reliable truck the drives starts and stops nice


I couldnt sell it im too attached someone offered me $3500 for it once in a home depot parking lot I mean they just dont make them like they use to

(Me and my buddy the next morning after i got it)

With dead batteries I would not pay more than a couple hundred bucks. Cant check anything if it wont spin. Engine could have been locked up, trans in pieces, etc and you wouldnt know until you got home with it. Just my 2 cents

Man thats awesome you got that to work out. I buy cars from the general pubilc, and If I had a dollar for every time I have herd it just needs a battery, I wouldnt have to work anymore. The last one was a 86 500 SEL Mercedes Benz. Jumped it off and it wouldnt change from 2nd to 3rd gear. Good thing I bought it cheap.

my friend bought a $500 dollar volvo that "onley needed a muffler" turned out the muffler was this complicated all in one deal it had a bad injector and when we finally got it to run right we took it for a test drive it was stuck in "winter mode" I.E. stuck in 3rd gear:rolleyes:
