    Here's a couple of pics of my new truck. I haven't seen or driven it myself yet :eek1: I'm in Okinawa and had my FIL test drive and buy for me. Five more months and I can get her dirty!

    Well, the last two owners lived down the street from each other in Irving, TX. It has been repainted, the original color was the gray at the bottom. It has new factory carpet, new dash, vinyl seat covers, and the door panels have been dyed. Power windows and locks with an alarm and keyless entry. I guess the exhaust is true duals until after the cats and then into one pipe for exit. Holley TBI, and MSD iginition, CD player w/remote, and a 2in lift w/33s. It has 82k miles, and I paid 7k. This was my treat to myself after having to drive a Nissan Skyline over here for 3 years. :D

    i completely agree, my balzer was super clean, ive never seen one than clean, but about 6 months after i got it, i put a lift on it, now its cut up modified to the hilt and doesnt have a straight panel on it. just drive that one and buy a beater, trust me youll be mad at yourself..

    Thanks, guys, I am very happy with my find, and I am glad to hear that I seem to have done as well as I thought I was.

    I'm not mad that I've been driving Skyline, my wife just feels sorry for me, because I haven't had a truck to drive over here. We did have a 4Runner for a while, but she blew it up on the freeway! :mad:

    The Wife

    This is the wife and I did not blow up the truck!!! It was old and a beater. He will be buying a beater because I am not going to pay for the gas for that beast! And as far as the Skyline...it doesn't haul our twin daughters around too comfortably!

    My thoughts exactly. Bring the skyline back (if possible0 and you will have one hell of a cool garage. Nice Blazer BTW. definately too pretty to tear up. :waytogo:

    Nice looking :k5: . What type of skyline do you have? I still kick myself for not bringing either of mine back from Oki (91 GTS-T type M, and 91 GTR). I would have brought my TD Pajero back to if I could have also.Z

    I'm driving a 96 GTS25T....I would have loved to have bought a GTR, but the single turbo is more than fast enough to get me into lots of trouble....ya know, it'll triple the posted limeit on the expressway :wink1:
