    I'm kinda sad, but happy at the same time. Yesterday I retired the '85 from being my daily driver. I am soooo glad I do not have to sell her for now, but here are a few specs-If anyone reading this could put a price on my truck I'd appreciate it. 85, 305, 4 speed (granny gear), black - bedliner both in and out (never rust or scratch), 3" double black pipe bumper w/ off road lights on bumper, bug guard, rear spoiler, new carpet, thule high foot racks with custom built off road lights under the rack (protecting the lights from branches etc), rear tire carrier with good spare+carrier, tint, tow, rancho 5000, lights all work w/ additional ac plug, cd w/amp custom sound (great) - speakers are bolted down to keep from getting stolen when I have my soft top on, security type soft top (custom) with rain ribs to keep water off + out, carb was recently rebuilt, 150K, some pics at http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/Gorge/3728/4x4.html

    Yup, I now own a 2000 blazer ls (black) for a daily driver-oh have I missed air conditioning!

    Thanks

    Driving your blazer=FUN!

    Hey, I just bought an 85 k5 it sounds alot like yours, in excellent condition. I found it at www.autotrader.com They all ranged from 3,800 and up.(in decent shape) Mine was 5,000.00. Modifications don't seem to add a whole lot unfortunately. I would have grabbed yours for at least 5,000.00 with a high end of 6,000.00.

    Buy an 18' carhauler for about $1500 and then make a trail truck outta your old blazer! You sell it, and you'll regret it!
