    I'm trying to post a few pics of my 83 blazer if anyone would like to see what my life has been devoted to lately. please bear with me while I get in over my head. If you look closely you can see my poor mans 4 inch lift kit, it consists of a two inch suspension lift and a coat of black paint in a line under the door jamb from the back of the front fender to the front of the back fender. I'll get some creepin and crawlin pics later.

    For now it has an '88 350. It's bored out .030 and has got a mild cam. It does alright but I'm getting ready to replace it with a fresh one. I might jump to 383 if I can be talked into it. Also can get my hands on a 327. This one still runs pretty well so I'm weighing my options.

    Hers a pic of the front. I found a huge tube bumper with dick cepeck lights on it at a yard sale. The guy said he'd take 50.oo for it. Not too sure what its off of but I think I can make it fit. Notice the torque convertor in the corner of the photo.(P.O.S.)

    It expensive enuff to drive the 350, if I had a 454 I'd be buying more gas and more tires and more trannies and more...... I couldn't keep my foot off the gas. Thanks for the thought tho.

    True, but you would have a cool k5...mpg would suck, I am currently working on saving my money for a 454. I want to work the engine first then interior then mess with lifts and tires...
