    I just went to www.carfax.com and entered my blazers VIN number. It says thatmy blazer is a 1984 chevy k10 4x4 blazer. Whats with the k10? What the heck does k10 mean?

    It means that carfax doesn't care about Blazers. It's actually a K-5, though some of the codes are that same as K-10's.

    K10's are 1/2 ton Pick up trucks. But yeah, like Jason said, Carfax probably doesn't know K5's like we do.

    That's nothing compared to what carfax did to me. When I entered my VIN, it came up as a V-10 Blazer! I had to do a double-take on that.

    The V thing is actually right. In 87 Chevy switched it's designation from CK to RV. V actually indicates a 4 wheel drive vehicle.

    This will show how to break down the VIN and also tells about the model designation change.
