    Hi group,

    My dad bought this used in Feb 1991. Paid $7200 for it. Drove it daily til he passed in April 95. I took it and drove it daily after that. I had it restored in Summer of 1999. Stupidly, I let it go in the fall of 2003. Three weeks ago I ran into the guy I sold it to for the first time since then. I asked about it. He says I still have it, it's been sitting for 10 years with a bad tranny. I asked if he'd sell it back and how much? He knew the whole story behind it. I'll deliver it to ya for $200...I'm thrilled to see ya have it back He says! It's time to restore again, and my 17 y/o son is over the moon!

    Welcome! I've often wondered what happened to my previous squares... then again maybe I wouldn't want to know.

    Kansas City MISSOURI welcomes you.

    Im still a noobie myself.
    You're most def in the right place. Best forum ive ever been apart of for sure. LOTS OF SOLID INFO. Lots of ACTIVE and PATIENT members that pretty clearly know the what's what of these trucks.

    I can only imagine how thrilled I would have been at 17 to get my hands on a rig like that. I know at 29, finally getting my k10 Suburban had me tickled pink. Way cooler that its his Granddads truck too boot.
