    /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifI have been hunting for a blazer /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif for over a year now and I finally got one!
    It is bone stock (for now). I need it for a daily driver for a while and then I will start upgrading it.

    Got it on ebay.

    Let me know what you think. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    LOL, my auction said no rust! Which was totally correct not a spot of rust on the outside, except the floor was very rotted! SOB! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    Ah well... lets me practice my welding skills.
    Hopefully you lucked out better than I did. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    Here is a pic of the classic K5 seat belt rot. Which I did not notice until I tried to use it to get into my truck.

    you might not know this, but this isn't the first time that trucks been on here. this summer it was on Ebay & someone posted a joke about it being dead on the side of the road. so they just snaped some pic & tried selling it from there.

    In all reality it looks like a great truck, & I am very jelious of you. but the question still stands did you have to pick it up on the side of the road?

    Actually, I pick it up this Friday. Do you have a link to the old auction or the forum that had this blazer before?

    The seller is a dealership and claims that the engine and transmission run strong. If that is not the case then I will back out of the auction and report him to ebay.

    Thanks for heads up!!

    I just remember passing over it in the forum, I didn't have it saved, nor do i remember what it was listed as. The trucks probably in fine shape, but possibly ask them if they listed it before, & if they tell you no, then there feeding you a load of SH_T

    do a new thread in the forums call it "HAVE YOU SEEN THIS BLAZER?" then provide the link of just a pick of it on the side of the road. somebody might know more about it.
    Just an idea

    Well I picked it up on Friday and it was in better shape than expected. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif It needs some minor work, but nothing big. Thanks for all the compliments!
