Like the title says I bought another truck again, and I still haven't brought home the last one I bought. It is a 1988 GMC K1500. I mainly bought this one for parts because the frame has a small hole in it and the body isn't the best. I paid 500 for it which I think is a fair price. The engine runs great and even fired right up after sitting for over 3 years. It sounds great with open headers lol. My eventual plan is to build 1 or 2 trucks out of the 3 I have now. The picture makes the truck look a lot better than it actually is.

I like open headers.  Great idea on your plans, and still have some spare parts.  Noel

If you keep buying trucks you are going to have to buy a wrecker next.

The picture makes it look much better than it is. From years of sitting in tall grass and not moving rust has set in pretty bad. Both doors, rocker panels and front fenders all have rust issues and the bed is bubbling in the usual places too. Sadly the frame has a hole in it or else I would try to save this truck.

Sorry to hear about the frame but you still have a gold mine of parts to use or sell.Around here windsheilds sell like hot cakes and if the front seat is any good you can get 100 from the plow jockeys.Lots of them trucks still on the road and no parts in the junk yards cus they crushed them when the scrap prices peaked.
