    Its a 79. A guy hit the rear driver side fender, damaging the tail light and denting the fender a bit. So as my dad did some body work, he stop driving it since there was no left tail light. Thats when he bought the blazer, which i am driving now. But i want to get the 924 running so i can get better mpg for distance drives, and incase my blazer breaks down, like it is right now, I will have a back up. Plus its just a good looking car that i wouldn't mind driveing.:D

    What the heck! Your dad parked a Porsche because of some body damage and ended up driving a Blazer?

    Not that I wouldn't do the same thing but I'd still have the Porsche to drive, man there's something wrong with him.

    They are costly... Mine has been parked for 5 years now. Timing belt broke... I need a complete new top end for it. Valves are bent (normal when TB brakes).... May need pistons....
