    Yeah. I've shuffled quite a bit over the last couple months.

    My oldest is about to driving age so had to purchase him a vehicle. He is now the proud 'owner' of a 1987 K5. Nothing wrong with it just needs a lot of TLC. First thing we did was replace the seats - the original ones were basically springs only.

    This guy (FKA Vader) I picked up for $50 as a basket case. Motor was removed and believed to of had internal transmission damage by the previous owner. Got it home, $250 later I had a used motor ready for install. During the install I discovered it wasn't in fact the internal transmission but rather the final drive had a stripped gear. I just recently disposed of it a couple weeks back and will be ahead about $300 on it.


    Now that the garage is cleaned out again I was getting ready to put Leia back inside up on stands so I can begin the brake repairs/replacement/upgrades (SS lines, new pads, rotors, blah blah blah). Well just over a week ago her daily decided to break down again. Long story short -- we didn't trust that vehicle anymore. Sky came home and evicted Leia back to the driveway.
