    i have to say its a hoax. Look at the steering wheel and column, its out of a chevy luv. If you need proof ill take a pic of the steering column in mine and my stock steering wheel. But i think its still a neat looking truck.

    That is not a hoax. I have read a couple of features on that thing over the past few years.

    Kinda ugly IMO.

    There aren't many original parts on that one.

    Seems like a waste of money to me.

    How many concept vehicles (no matter what time frame) have all 100% original parts. Thats what this TrailBlazer was, a concept car of its time.

    looks to me like someone puked on a VW bug.
    When I was looking at it I thought it looked like something Barris would have designed in the 60s.

    Yeah, I've seen that thing for sale several times. I think they were asking $100,000 at one point.

    I find it funny how the drawing (on the picture trail link) that was "done five years before the first production year" looks just like a 71-72. I guess he had the foresight to not draw the grill of the 69-70s. [​IMG]
