    Greetings all, I found a never fired crate motor on ebay for $750.00 and a quick trip to Houston. Its an elCheapo mexican block -- but is working great and will keep my '72 on the road until I get the 350 taht was in it redone.

    If you see a couple of pics of my Blazer below I was successful in getting them loaded -- if not I'll try again.

    I just couldn't bring myself to go back with the "baby poop" yellow when I repainted it last summer.

    I've found the internet is the ultimate place for a 25/25 paint job -- you know, looks good at 25 FT and/or 25 MPH -- with being my first spray job and me being to lazy to color sand and polish......
