    only when it gives me fits like when i got tons of dirt in the carb and it wanted to idle around 3k.. or when i blew the rear end out of it (no big deal), then noticed the front end leaking fluid out the tube, and me being the pessimist that i am decided i should sell it because that seal is a pita to change.. ended up filling the front end and keeping it... ive regretted getting rid of every vehicle ive ever owned..this truck hopefully isnt going anywhere..

    depends, a month ago, I would have sold the pair for a sandwitch ( a really good sandwitch mind you). Since I've solidified my action plan on how I'm going to make Burbanzilla king of the road again, I'm not getting rid of it. I have pressure from my parents, my grandfather, family, friends, etc to get rid of it, but I know once I do, I'll never get another one. ever. not never... I mean lets face it: 1973 K20 Super Cheyenne suburbans just don't come out of nowhere every day now do they...

    How could any one get tired of their blazer? I mean its a CHEVY ( most important ), it has two doors ( macho factor ), v-8 power ( more macho factor ). What more does a person need.

    now and then.

    I feel lost without a pickup. A lot of times I wish I hadn't sold the CTD and had offed the K5 instead. I'm becoming lazy and dont want to wrench on stuff as much anymore. Hence, the reason the K5 is at the shop right now getting exhaust and a tie rod. Both things that I probably could do myself, but i'm too damn lazy right now. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    If I can get in it, drive it down the road, and nothing pisses me off about it then i LOVE it. But whe I try to do somthing to it and it fights back and gives me a hard time then i hate it. Seems every other day I will make plans on how much i could sell it for , other days I plan on how to spend more money on it. Not to hijack but (mabey im crazzy..) who else thinks of there trucks almost as a person? Ya know ya yell at it when your mad and tell it your proud of it when it does amazing things. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    depends on what day of the week it is...and how many problems it has at a time.. its up for sale now but once and a while i stare at it and think im doing the wrong thing..(most likly am) and i will defenetly miss the thing..but i cant afford to drive a 10 mpg truck right now and it would just wind up sitting cause i dont have the moeny for the things i wanan do to it..better of driving the s-10 for now and just saving..besides if im ganna put all that money and time into something i rather it be a blazer than a pickup..but all in all i think its a sweet ass truck! really stands out in the parking lot!
