    well, ive been looking for a while, and i have found one at a local dealer. engine seems strong , (having my buddy look at it tomorrow) , rust around the drivers side rocker panel, tailgate area is solid. inside is in mint condition, paint is also in great shape. they wanted 4995 for it. i went there yesterday, and i told him i wouldnt pay over 3500 for it, and i left. they called me tonight and told me to come in tomorrow and work something out. if i can get it for 3500, is it worth it?

    i paid 2500 for my 86 last year, so to me it balances out.

    so what do you guys think?

    for 3500 i'd say its a good price. how many miles does it have? i paid 6 grand for my 89' two years ago in mint condition and 120k. i would also see how the tranny shifts and ask if its been rebuilt. is it completly stock?

    Doesn't sound to bad. I paid $5000 for my '91 last May that was in excellent shape. No rust, dents, tears, etc. Bone stock w/112,000 miles. Not so bone stock, anymore. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Good luck

    well, i just went down there again. both rockers will prob. have to be replaced. otherwise, the rust is minimal. power windows need some work along with taqilgate window, but that won be so bad.

    i got him down to 2800.00, left a 200 dollar deposit, and will bring it to my friend tonight so he can look over the engine.

    i signed the papers for the 2800.00, but contingent (sp.) on his manager oking the price and my mechaninc oking the engine.

    hows that sound?

    they pretty much have a nasty 3 inch hole in the middle. ive seen rockers on ebay for around 40 bucks, so i was thinking of just replacing them. so otherwise, its a good deal?

    well, i offered him 2500, no more and he didnt like it, so i walked. the tranny was a liitle over worked, and would prob need to be changed out soo. ( he doesnt know i have a new one at home)

    he wanted 3500 tax, tags, out the door. im in no rush, and im sure he will call tomorrow anyways.

    then, i had my fiances honda checked out by my friend, we thought that a hub bearing was going, but it turns out, the tranny is going!!

    so now i am taking off work tomorrow to go get her a new car. so my dreams of a 91 blazer are on hold once again. lol'

    thanks for the input guys!!

    So, a dealer went from 5,000 to 1,500 cash. Either there is something wrong with the truck and there trying to dump it, QUICK, or you are getting a wicked deal!! From my experiance with the 87 up body's, If the rockers are going, look hard at the floors!! Just about EVERY 87 up that has had "minimul" rocker rust, always seems to have alot of floor rust. Real sore spots is the area where the seat belts bolt down, just behind the doors. I would climb under this thing and REALLY look it over. I get aftermarket rockers for 20.00 each. not hard to do, But if the floos are is weak where the seat belt goes, Fabrication will be needed. Nobody aftermarket makes a repair panel for that, and GM discontinued that part years ago.

    What dealer, I am from NJ, I have some friends in the car biz.
    I bought my 89 in Lakewood on 88 in 93. Paid 8300.00 for it. Still have it 230,000. Just put a crate motor in it. Good for another 200,000. My future ex lived in Belmar on Pinetree way.
    Come on out to AZ. No rust.
