    lol!
    well if they had'nt of all rusted out into almost nothing /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif then theyd have not needed to be parted haha, but anything here thats metal has a real time lasting very long, haha
    plus it was ppl who were bringing them to me, its not like i went out and dug for them, i didnt even have to go anywhere to get any of the ones i had for parts, but the oens i had that i drove i went after though, and sopld them all eventually, but other ppl junked them /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    vehicles just tend to have the worst of luck,


    humm..

    You sound like you've never seen the '67 to '72 trucks at all. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    If you lived here in E-town, those years of trucks are EVERYWHERE! There are lots of them driven daily all over the town, country, etc. Plenty of parts for them, too.

    I don't know how southern Illinois is so much different than here. He says he never sees Blazers and I must see a half dozen every day. 67-72s are kinda rare, but a guy at my work drives to work in a '71 GMC C1500 that surprisingly isn't rotten, although it's no show truck.

    Randy, come north!! We have jobs, blazers, and 67-72s!!
