    So there I was............I went to Ft. Collins to buy grecerys at Super Walmart. After that I took my kids to ride go-carts and stuff. On the way out of town, I stopped at Mark Turner Off-Road to buy a set of sway bar disconnects.

    After talking to the owner of MTO (Chris Wagner), I mention CK5 and he asks if that is "The Blazer site." I tell him yes and he asks me if I know anyone who might be interested in a 78 Blazer.

    Well after looking at it and driving it.............I coughed up some cash and bought it for myself.

    It is a 78 K5 with a 350/350/203/D44/12 bolt. Lock-Rite in the front and a posi in the rear. Brand new 35" Goodyear MTR's. 6" soft rides and a family cage.

    The body is hammered and pretty rusty, so I will proably take a few parts off that I want and part the rest out.

    Chris even let me use a flat bed trailer to haul it 40 miles home. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I snatched it for $1500.00.

    I drive to Ft. Collins to save some money. The 40 mile drive usually saves me about $200.00 a month on food.
