    Not too much of a mystery. It's a 73-75 Blazer (or Jimmy) with a swapped big block (396, 427, 454) chopped roof, shaved handles and looks to be 2WD.

    yeah that didn't make much sense to me either, apparently octane boost is excessively flammable and explosive? It is sort of a fuel so generally it burns just like gasoline.

    The ext. in the cab is what most hotroders put in their vehicles. When you have higher feul pressures and are putting the vehicle under more stress than normal, you have a higher chance of springing leaks. If you put alot of money in something the last thing you want is to see is it go up in flames.

    [/ QUOTE ]tell your cousins wiht money to go eat a bag of hell, and then politely convince your grandmother that you'd give it a proper home, and do it justice by finishing it out, like your uncle would have wanted.

    Good luck dude,

    Edit: before you try to start it, make sure the oil is clean ( I'd replace it) the radiator water/anti freeze is up, and clean ( I'd flush it) that the hoses aren't dried and cracked, and that you have some clean gasoline to start it with. whatever's in the tank is probably shot and useless by now, if not a thick varnish and would probably just plug up the carbureator/fuel filters. might siphon it out, and put some fresh fuel in.
