Story starts back in 2005, family friend had owned the K5 since late 90s and I first helped my father work on it for them in 2005 and had done general maintenance on it till around 2010, when they moved out of town. They continued driving it for the next 2 years until transmission went out 2012 and they decided not to rebuild/replace (too much funds into a vehicle they didn't use often enough). There it sat under an oak tree in the middle of a field. Fast forward to early 2014 Owner contacted and offered the K5 to us if we wanted it, it was an obvious yes. Became my first vehicle and project, likely a never ending one...
