    Got to love the Roadsters!!!!!!! Took the top of mine for the season on friday and went wheeling. It's great to have the roof gone!!!!!! My wife gets jelous over the summer cause the full top doesn't come off her 79 :) Nice days I come home and find the 75 gone often.

    Great to see someone else in the 73-75 club. I've already gotten burnt and peeled this year, but think it's worth it to have that full top off!!! Doesn't really matter if the paint is bad and some rust it's still a full convertible that will go dang near anywhere!

    What a big happy family this is. I still can't believe how many 73-75's have found this website. I obviously have a '73 now, and a '74 Blazer was my first car when I was 14. Now I just need to find a '75...but my girlfriend would shoot me in the face if I bought another truck.

    Re: My \'73 K5 Blazer

    LOL... You guys crack me upp . I have a wife that will give me some pretty mean looks when I drag oil and rusted parts to work on inside the house but Is there a real danger she will just snap someday??
    And I can see how being shot in the face would be more degrading than just being shot in the ankle forexample...
    I understand the irony but in the face!!??
