    Well here I am. I just bought a 73 Blazer so you'll probably see me here asking questions. I've owned GM's since 1976 but this is my first truck. I paid $2800 and the body is in perfect shape with a fairly fresh white paint job. I've tried to find rust on it but I can't. It's got a GM Goodwrench 350, I wanted to do a tune up on it but it runs perfect. It's a Cheyene with PB,PS,AC that works. I'm so stoked! I've had it one day and the top came off today. Let the sun shine in baby! I do have one problem with it, the steering is really loose(as in excessive play) and the steering wheel is way off center, I feel like I'm drunk driving. I should have a picture in a day or two. YEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Welcome fellow '73 owner. Just took mine out camping last night w/out the top. Was a beautiful thing.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of the 73/75 roadster. With open tops, a V8, and 1/2 ton axels from the factory,what more could you ask for? These trucks are rare, and getting more so every day! Take care of her and you stand a good chance of the rig going UP in value. Kelly blue book list my 75 at $3700. That`s $200 more than it sold for when she was new!
