    So i just logged in and i had a private message from what i beleave is a new member here..said that he saw my screen name and it rang a bell..he used to have a k5 with a etching on the back window of a bad arse blazer and sheoldeblaze written under it....when i bought my k5 it had a glass etching of a bad arse blazer with sheoldebalze written under it...hence the screen name..;)

    One of these days I hope to run into a previous owner of my rig. He might be surprised.

    i doubt I'll ever see the previous owners of my rig. Once you ditch the body, axles, engine, trans and t-case its pretty hard to recognize! :)

    I never even met the previous owner of Wimpy. She moved away before we bought the truck and it was being sold by a friend.

    I tracked down the orginal owner of my blazer, she lived in Montana and I sent her pics of what I had done, wrote me back to say she was glad it was in someones hands who has enjoyed it.

    I met the owners of mine a couple times. Day I bought the truck Aug 2001, on the way home stopped to get gas (foreshadowing of things to come), anyway, guy walks up, starts talking, he was the 2nd owner of the truck.

    Fast forward to this past Aug, I bumped into the original owner of it at Home Depot. It used to be a fairly rare color, so it was a tipoff to him. He was impressed with the work that had been done, especially when I popped the hood for him, lol.

    And I bought it from the 3rd owner.
