Post subject: And now for something completely different

Im back bitches.

After the 10th time having to beg / borrow / steal to get a truck to haul things around town or go camping, I said fuckit and got this:

1975 Chevy Blazer
[img]http://i.imgur.com/UrVhFSV.jpg?1[/img]

I bought it down in Casa Grande off of a guy that im guessing isnt the meth cook, but might have been his 2nd in command. It has a 327 motor with some kind of headers, 700R4 transmission, Dana60 front and 12bolt Chevy rear.

The 12 bolt has been lightened extensively, specifically when the carrier grenaded out of the bottom of the vehicle on the drive back to Gilbert. I have the rear end gutted and am expecting a new carrier to come in the mail on Friday.

None of the interior lights work which is fine, because none of the gauges work either so who needs to see them anyway.

Came with a custom stereo system: someone wedged square logitech computer speakers into the door where the 5 x 7's go and wired them into a Sony Xplod deck.

Pictures of all the body work came in the center console of the vehicle. Unfortunately, some asshole spilled something on them so they are like nachos now; they are all stuck together and peeling them apart just rips them.

Ignition has an anti-lock feature: when you turn the key over the ignition is so worn that you have to hit the steering column with a rubber mallet in order to for the contacts to touch.

Custom linkage for throttle and choke to carb: zip-ties everywhere.

Custom vacuum line deteles all over the fucking place.

All of the above sucks, but the body is good, engine sounds good, trans is solid, and almost all of the glass is there (Missing driver side glass), and I got it for a steal. None of the things that mentioned are too expensive, some of them dont cost anything at all to fix. Should be on the road next week to see how bad inspection is.

I wonder why they stopped making the Blazer and the Bronco. I didn't think the O.J. thing was that bad for the image.

Ha! Love it! I was just perusing our fine Craigslist for Broncos last night. I rue the day I sold my '68, especially looking at what they go for now.

Seriously. Thats why I got this one. Last year for the convertible top I think, and they appear to be in super high demand in this area.
