The BuyI need another vehicle like I need another mother to make me feel guilty when I forget some relative's birthday, but I've wanted a truck for a long time. More importantly, my wife has been talking about how we should have a truck around.This 1979 K10 was acquired by a friend two years ago and then traded in a package deal to another friend last year. With too many vehicles himself, my friend offered me this truck for $600...so I took it. Knowing that a '79 is eligible for Washington State's collector vehicle once-per-lifetime registration also made this a no-brainer acquisition.The TruckThe K in model designation indicates full-time four-wheel-drive with a selector for high range, high range locked, low range, and low range locked. 10 denotes half-ton. Other model alphanumerics included C for rear-wheel-drive, 20 for 3/4 ton and 30 for full-ton.
