      Threw a new carburetor on the ole girl, has it running tons better. Had to buy new wheels the other day because one of my bullets is slightly warped so they can't really be balanced right. Picked up some 10 slot truck rally wheels, gonna try to get a quote on getting them powdered and trim all nice. I keep planning on painting it soon but something always pops up. Considering single-tone white or maroon, still not ready. Hope you get the heavy Chevy on the road eventually.

      Hey, man, how's the Chevy coming along?

      Very true. I had forgot that the previous owner didn't use it for much and I remember watching the video and seeing the rust under the body. Sorry sights, but still a lovely truck. What's your plans for it whenever you do get started again?

      Oh no! The suspension is bad on it? I can see body panels, because it does have a lot of rust on it from what I can see. Such a shame. :/ Maybe one day it'll see it's former glory. Can only hope for it to be sooner than later.

      Definitely 4" for 33's on the 90s squares or OBS bodies. Such a sweet rig, I can't wait until I see the '77 get some loving though. Haha love to see that money you spent in the Hoe put into the K.

      Sick, sick! What kind of power is it estimated to put out? It's slick, man. I like those thing around the wheels too. My only problem with it is in some pictures the tires look super small, and in others they look nice as hell. But it's your rig. xD

      I wish I had something else to drive around myself that maybe got a little bit better gas mileage so I could throw more money into the K instead of having to put it in the tank. (Using 100% Gasoline kills out the pocket, but totally worth it for performance and you get a little bit better mileage depending on how your foot is with the pedal!)

      Dude!!! That thing is sick as hell! What's the specs on the engine? And I love bullets on the OBS models. Such a beautiful truck, man. Nicest one I've seen in a very long time.

      I just looked in your signature at your 'Hoe, man. It looks great! I love that color and it's stance. People here rag them out and just do completely stupid shit to them, but that's a nice rig for sure.

      Speaking of the Silverado on your end though, would you ever be interested in letting go of the push bar? I just noticed it in your avatar, and I've been looking for one for ages. If not, that's totally cool. But if you are, I'm totally interested. Hell, if I lived any closer and the money was right, I'd be willing to take the whole truck off your hands. lmao As far as it being at a stand-still, you'll get to it one day hopefully. I'd hate to see such a beautiful K go to waste, but I'm sure you wont. Haha.

      I'm fine, man. About to graduate in a few months and been applying to colleges and trying to figure out what I'm going to do whenever I get out of school. As for "Grey Bird", as a friend of mine who always rides with me has come to calling it, she's at a stand still right now. I hope maybe this summer if I'm around home, to get some more progress on it. So much on the to-do list, with so little money. Shit sucks. What about the Cali' Silverado on your end?

      Chevrolado! How goes it, man?

      Well, had to retune it not too long ago because it'd sputter off on me whenever I got to intersections. Thing was running rich as hell. It's kinda lean now, but can't park it on a hill. xD I'm really thinking my lock gas caps might be creating a lot of pressure and causing it to vapor lock or something along those lines. Because it didn't start doing this stuff until I got those caps. Might be going back to the twisties.

      How's the K, man?

      I hear that, man. I'm thinking about getting new brakes for mine here soon, they're starting to squeak when I first get to driving it in the morning to head to school and it's killing my ears out. Haha.

      I've pretty much decided to let it stay primer for a while though, since I'm still young and dumb and painting it will lead me to wanting to baby it too much. But summer's here, so I expect it'll see a couple of beer cans and fish before my senior year starts.

      The fifty dollars in gas a week is about as much of new that goes into the K here lately. I've got to get some new glasses here soon, and I'm saving up for prescription sunglasses while I'm at it. And some new window cranks, because those plastic ones like to strip out on me, so I went metal. :P But she's running strong and feels more like a champ everyday. Not even feeling shown up by the ole' boy with the "pretty" '84 K anymore. Sounds like his motors knocking, and it does not sound good at all at an idle. Typical flowmasters. HAHA. He's got a 'vette motor in it though, so my jealous points increased a bit on motor wise. Too much chrome though. Chrome don't make her go. :P But yeah, I'll be spinning my one year anniversary with Mrs. '78 Silverado here soon, so all is good and well.

      How 'bout yourself and the '77?
