    Thanks man, nice of ya to say /forums/images/icons/grin.gif . Actually, it's sittin' on a 2" lift (thinkin' of lowerin' it). Right on the money with the tires - 33 BFG MT's, stock tranny and tranfer case, Rancho 5000's, rebuilt 350 w/Thorley headers, 650 Holley and a 500 watt JVC stereo. Once I get the ride corrected, next up is a 6 point cage, some high backs from a later model (suggestions anyone?) and rear bumper/tire carrier. And a soft top. Just as soon as I hit the lottery.

    Thanks man. I've only been out twice. The best trails in my neighborhood are about an hour North. I'm still trying to get the highway drive under control. Otherwise, yeah I'm pretty obsessive about keeping her clean. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif She's definately rougher up close.

    Hopefully it will get better. Both vehicles are still "works in progress". Who'da thought rebuilding two 30+ year old vehicles could be so expensive! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif Still, beats a $700/month note on something that's depreciating!

    Oh my God! You have both of my favourite vehicles!!!! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif I have the '72 Blazer but I don't think I'll ever have the coin for my Corvette. I am dying to get a 69-72 Stingray and have been since I was in Grade 6! You sir are a lucky man!!! I am definitely jealous! Both of your rides look FANTASTIC!!! You are definitely a man after my own heart!

    Take it easy and enjoy your rides! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Thanks, but don't be too jealous. I spend alot of my free time on a creeper /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif. Speakin of a man after my own heart, I've got my uncle and cousin (they own their own shop)lookin' out for a TPI platform to stab in the vette.
