    I agree that is one ugly ride. Kinda wierd being Corvair powered. But look at all the tire clearence.

    I can see the resemblance to the final product! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif They both had 4 tires. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    That thing may have been a GM show vehicle with a similar name to the Blazer that they eventually produced, but saying that it was any kind of precursor to the Blazer is ridiculous.

    That guy should have been thrown out of the GM offices, for coming in with a Jeep design for Chevy. Good thing GM was smart enough to make a full-size when everything else was small (Jeep, Bronco, Scout).

    It looks more like a quad on steroids than a blazer. Those fenders are great!!! I wonder if the duct tape on the seat depreciated the value any!
