    I'm in the Houston area. I found a 1984 K5 Blazer for sale locally and decided to go buy it tonight. It is in excellent condition. NO rust, new engine, tranny, Holley carb, driveshafts, suspension, AC system, Warn hubs, awesome sound system, and more. Everything works properly and the interior is very clean. Truck is black and silver.

    I'll post pics after I bring it home tonight. Just wanted to say hello.

    I've always wanted a K5, and am REALLY glad I found one from the mid-80s.

    Are there any specifically good or bad things with this year model I should watch out for?

    Of course look for cracks in the frame by the steering box . As for everything working , try the cruise control , mine didn't work on the 83 so I took it off underhood ( only bad accessory ) . Mostly just do a good look at all the normal stuff and make sure it drives good and all signals light . Hope you enjoy it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
