    Snatched a blazer out of VA and brought it back to VT to live. :D

    Should make a decent platform to build a trail use blazer.

    Still working out the exact details but first it needs a good cleaning just to see what's really there.

    Motor seems strong but the carb is one hurtin' unit.

    More to come as the build continues...

    We did some trading. ;)
    I brought down the white swb 4x4 and aquired both the blazer and the panel.

    Still need to gather up the panel though. Anybody heading north? :laugh:

    When I change the batteries in the camera, it zero's out the date, just forgot to reset it again. :o

    I noticed that too, had to do a double take. Sounds like a good deal. Maybe when you come down for the panel, I can get some of the SE VA guys to come up and meet you.

    Another VA Trip

    Cool idea.
    I just e-mailed Mike about making plans for the return trip.
    Hopefully he can make the trip this time. :thumb:

    I couldn't help but notice that your K5 is on a trailer being pulled by a Trailblazer. How does that inline 6 pull?

    Surprisingly well.
    Tires could be better suited for towing. (need a higher ply)
    Rear end is a bit soft but with some coil overs, it'd be okay.
    It's not a power house but it gets the job done.

    The trailer has tandem electric brake as well, if it didn't I wouldn't. :eek1:
