    I'm in Arlington Heights, but my blazer is currently in California. www.rafforacing.com If anybody knows of a good project k-5, let me know. I want to get my fifteen year old son in a project with me. He keeps telling me he wants a Mustang. All I really need is a frame and a cowl. Maybe not even the frame.

    My 77 k5 would work pretty well :)

    May be more "finished" than you would want, but its far from "complete"... at least in my eyes.

    You can check it out here: http://www.spkrman.com/installs/k5blazer/

    If you have any interest... email me: spkrman at comcast.net

    I will look around here for a good K5.

    I like the layout of your site Spkrman. I saw that you also use StatCounter. How has it worked so far.

    Im just north of Chicago by Readymix. I know quite a few offroaders in my town and towns around it, i know about 15people total here with trucks and jeeps. I dont know of any blazers for sale around here but my friend is selling his 87 Dodge ramcharger for $800, full convertible and flat black.

    Your Blazer looks pretty good to me. And you're right about it being a little more "finished" than I was looking for, but pm me a number anyway.
