    If there is a Blazer style truck that I liked (that wasn't a Blazer) it would be that vintage Bronco.

    I look forward to seeing it sometime this summer :waytogo:

    Mike, Mike I thought you were going to get an original sized Bronco not a full size. Here I was being jealous with you getting the type of Bronco I always wanted. I'm just blown away! :(:( I figure you have about six weeks to get the "pretty pony" up and going so we can get started smashing the help out of the "pretty pony". :):) Maybe you should paint it camoflague then no one will notice it's a .erd I mean Ferd.














    Ha ha ha he he he

    As long as Cirrus likes it it's ok with me!

    Cool looks like a 79??? Can't really see if the headlights are square though.

    Good score Mike, it's a lot nicer than I expected it to be for such a low price. I like it. With a 429 it'll be a lot of fun to drive.

    Engineer's Pass: part II. We shall conquer. :D

    How the hell do you always find the deals?

    Its a 78 XLT, hence the square headlights. The Customs had the round headlights. ALL 79s had the square headlights.

    James-it was on ebay, with a BIN of 832 bucks, so I did!!!:D

    Speaking of which................................. Just down the street from me is a 65-66 LWB, 4x4 Chevy, been sitting for at least a year. Anyone interested in a 78-9 4 door F250 4x4? Rebuilt 400, 4 speed, 205 T case. The body is even pre-bashed, so you can take it rock crawling right away!!!! I know of at least 5 1st Gen Blazers in my county. If its a truck, in this county, with CO plates, it is 4wd. How bout a M715? Or maybe an old military Power Wagon? I know where they are sitting.

    I like the old military power wagons. Problem is they won't haul a family.
