    Yep...really. I have a nomad collecting dust in the garage. That's just not right. It needs my time and (lack of) money next. For now, this truck is almost as finished as I plan to get it. Just needs a new seat cover and foam, and then troubleshoot a couple of simple wiring issues, and then its Paula's to drive around mostly.
    Just got at quote yesterday for collector car insurance for it. $180 for a year. $20K agreed value. 300/500 coverage with $500 deductible. I'm awaiting the proof of insurance card to be emailed from them, so I can get it off Non-Op and legal to be on the streets. Should have that all in a day or so.

    Saved another one!!!!!!!!

    But then this thing landed in my lap over the holidays...

    That's a complete L59 5.3 and 4L60e out of a 2005 Suburban. Flex fuel LS engine... I got everything needed for an eventual swap...PCM, drive by wire throttle pedal, all bolt on accessories, brand new water pump, new MSD plug wires, even the exhaust pipe with O2 bungs, all of it. $2400

    This stuff just lands in my lap somehow.

    But it's going to sit for a year or so, until I finish this Nomad.

    Sounds like you got a great deal on that eng/trans combo.. How many miles? It will be a great power train for your big window PU!

    I love the truck! I love the "after i get the Nomad done" attitude, and you keep playing with it! Good on you! That 5.3 would be an EXCELLENT swap! All you need now is time and money.............

    Are those Fleetside fenders steel? Or fiberglass like the Cameos?

    That truck has a lot of style.

    Bought a pre-sewn seat cover over the holidays, and last week my wife and I added new foam and recovered it.
