    As a lot of you know I totalled my K5 on Friday. I am now in need of a new project vehicle. The body and interior should be straight and clean. The drive is not important. Preferrable years '87-'91. Also keep in mind that I am in Canada. Also if anyone knows of any searches that may help please let me know. Thanks.
    Shawnboy.

    Look for them out in this area. Here in AZ there is no rust. The paint will be faded though, but cheaper to paint then fix rust. You can also find ones that have be repainted. You might want to keep your old interior if its in great shape and reuse it so you can save money when buying a new rig.

    Well I've picked up two rust free straight Blazers now...one from Texas and one from San Diego. I found both on this site...
    As long as they are over 15 years old you can avoid all the red tape inspection crap.

    Thanks for the input. I'm stuck with the realization that it may be a while before I'm back on the road with a K5. Sad but true. The pickins are pretty slim.
