    I was at the gas station today, filling the truck up and cleaning my windows when a little kid and his mom walked by. He couldnt have been more than 4 or 5 and he walked by, staring at the Blazer. Then with traditional little kid articulation I heard him say "I like you truck!". I didnt catch it first, couldnt understand what he said for sure but I thought thats what he said. He comes back out of the station with his mom again and sure he enough he said it again. Then as he was getting back in his station wagon he said it once more and he kept looking at the thing with a look of wonder in his eyes and a grin on his face. Looks like I've got a fan club now, lol.

    My 3 1/2 pitches and absolute fit if he sees me getting in my k5 and is not able to go with me... Couple of weeks ago we took the back seat out and went camping the mountains of ga and tooled around the mountains and in one place you go off the road and drive into the river and go up river for about 50yds and exit out onto a trail... His teachers told me to let them know next time so the can call in sick the following monday... Said all they heard ALL day long was about riding around in his and daddys blazer... Gotta Love Them...

    I like rolling through my girlfriends neighborhood and hearing the kids yell "nice truck." I guess all the dents and rust don't bother them...as long as its lifted.

    My 2 year old (which may I add is a girl) loves to help her daddy work on my car and always wants to go in daddy's truck. I'm gonna hate to see it when he gets the Jimmy home and starts working on that. I'm sure she won't leave his side then. She won't leave his tools or his tool box alone. She'll even tell you that she is daddy's girl. He thinks it is great. If this continue's he may be putting a truck together for her in the future. And i'm sure that she would be right by his side then too.

    The bigger the tires and higher it is the more kids will give you that deer in the head light watchin' tv open mouth stare. It's pretty funny and never gets old! :-)

    I have a 2 yr old and he likes riding in my 2000 doge ram, because it sits pretty high. But i can't wait til i get me jimmy project done. He will want to ride in that all the time. Kids are the coolest.

    Dirt don't hurt.

    I see it like this... kids (as well as many college females might I add) love anything lifted up and loud as heck. This will be my second truck and will be a bit bigger and nicer hopefully, but my past cars drew kids like flys... My drag car Trans am caused a huge mess everytime I drove it over to my ex-gf's place... her lil bro and sis wanted to go for a ride and her old man would blow his top roaring..."d@mn punk kids... d@mn thing louder then the jets at my work... disturbing the peace.. raz a fraz'n" LOL... I love It! [​IMG]

    My kids play a game called TAPTAP They yell TAPTAP when ever they see a cool car, truck that they want in their collection. They always put each others car down (cos they're jealous) but they always compliment each others blazers no matter WHAT they look like. Its a fun game, I catch myself playing all the time!

    I like the double and triple takes when they can't tell what color your blazer is from all the mud on it.

    Man, I can't even wash the Blazer in front of my house anymore, 4 or 5 kids come peddling up on their bikes and want to help me wash it. [​IMG] They all want to know where I got my "Monster Truck". It seems like everytime I have it out in the driveway the little boy from two doors down likes to drive his little motorized Jeep by about a hundred times, I hope he grows out of the Jeep thing though.

    I think if we can impress the 2-10 year old kids and the college age women, we're doing something right! Mostly the kids, they know what's really cool. I think I'd rather hear "nice truck" from a little kid than from an adult. I still have one of my "Stompers". The rest of them bit the dust to donate big tires and the cool little motors. Now I actually get to drive a Stomper, how much better can it get?

    Making the world better, one truck at a time.

    Stompers need to make a very serious comeback!!! Those were the coolest toys. Who makes 'em? Mattel? I'm gonna start lobbying!

    My 3 year old Son saw some kids on bikes checking out my Blazer and ran to the window and started yelling, my Daddy's truck, my Daddy's truck, then started jumping up and down swearing at them in some sort of baby lingo, i almost lost my lunch laughing so hard. GOD I LOVE THAT KID

    LMAO! That's so funny - baby swearing!

    I don't have kids, but my buddy's 3 year old loves my truck and my Blazer even more. We went for a ride in my '72 Blazer with the top off, my buddy put him in the back seat in his car seat - we drove all through town with a 3-year old with his hands in the air like he was on a roller coaster! He loved it - he keeps buggin' his dad - "when are we gonna ride in Ben's truck again?" Poor kid - his parents own 2 Hondas!

    My son (2 years old) hasn't worked on the blazer with me yet, but he sure loves it. He's always grabbing my four wheel magazines and looking at the pictures and saying "WOW" and "COOOOOL".

    My kid is a tad bit older than most of yours, 17 to be exact. Start saving now guys, because they will grow up to want vehicles like their dads. Then it starts all over, you will have to buy a vehicle and start working on it. I can honestly say it is one of the greates experiences you will ever have as fathers to work closely with your sons or daughters and really teach them something. The Jimmy is my son's daily driver, he is very proud of it and taks good care of it. He has had to earn the money to do some of the mods, and has helped with everything that has been done. It is worth ever penny we have spent and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.
