    Ok, so who can tell the year of these brand new undelivered K5's waiting to be shipped from Michigan to Wisconsin on the car ferry "City of Midland"?
    I'll start, ..definatly '73-75 full-roof style, I think I can narrow it to '73-74 because of the fender emblem. That's all I can tell....
    What year is that Buick? Mabey that's a clue?
    I just thought it was a cool picture. I like the old ferries that used to grace the Great Lakes....

    Looks like a Monte Carlo, not a Buick...1972 to be exact. I'm guessing these are the spankin new style 1973 Blazers...

    I thought it was a buick by the hood ornament.

    So the buick is at least a 73, could it be a 74 or a 75?
    I just found this:
    http://images.google.com/imgres?img...buick+regal&start=40&svnum=100&hl=en&lr=&sa=N

    Those show that the '75 is the only one with a hood ornament. The 73 doesn't have any, the '74 appears to be embedded into the metal right above the grille. So I thick the buick is a '75
    If that be the case, the K5's in question, would likly be 1974. Car's always changed over before trucks in those days.
    It's a little hard to tell, but in my picture, the ornament on the car appears to be free-standing and not embedded.
    Can't be '75 K5's, they had the smaller fender emblem starting in 75.
