    I could see getting mad if it was a 4x4, but being 2 wheel drive I don't think that its that bad. A little too low for my liking, but the guy obviously has put a lot of work into it. Could be a sweet truck....

    So a low vintage Chevy that's clean, runs a big block, and is 2WD is junk???

    It isn't rice...but the guy did a decent job on it and it's all healthy Chev! I'd own it, maybe lift it back up an inch or two, get rid of the purple in the engine bay and enjoy the hell out of it!

    I like it since it is a two wheel drive I think its fine that its lowered. I think it would look better though with some rims and a paint job and the top teken off.

    Like Jimmy said. Nothing wrong with a 2wd Blazer. I wouldn't mind having it. As long as it's a topless Blazer. Nothing like a full conv. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Very very wrong \'74 on Ebay

    i like it. i would love to have a C5. i would have to fight myself to lower it, with a nice 4 link rear or vette rear setup and tube a arms up front with konis all around. then some 18 inch rims in back and 16 up front with nice touring tires. or in the red coroner, baja it out with glass everywhere and long travel all around.
    ethier way that one needs some nicer rims and paint, but other than that i like it

    I like it. Paint and tires would definatly help it out. I could also lose the purple engine treatment, but its cool for what it is. Just MHO

    Well, the rear would need to be raised a few inches. Tub it and stick some insanely wide tires back there. For rims, deffently Center Line Autodrags !!!!!!!!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Very very wrong \'74 on Ebay

    I had not seen a lowered 73-75 before. Looks better than I thought it would although it's a little lower than I would have liked. I love what the 69-72's look like lowered. If and when I get a 2wd I had planned a pre runner style with 33's on stock suspension. Now that I have seen a slammed one it looks better then I though. Thow some fat sway bars on it and I bet it would handle pretty good and run down ricers.
    If it was near me I would be bidding on it /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif That thing is worth $3k to me and maybe a little more.

    BTW I'm moving this to the Garage. this is the wrong forum for this type of post
