    I just got back from a 1300 mile in 36 hour round trip to Salt Lake City. Blueblaze's (Paul's) '87 K5 now has a new home here in Colorado, and after a 650 mile trip across Mars (Wyoming) alone in an unknown and untested (to me anyway) vehicle it has already started endearing itself to me. I know there is a buyer/seller feedback forum for this type of thing, but I believe Paul went WAY above and beyond what would be expected of a seller and wanted to let everyone know what kind of guy he was. First, we had never met before 4pm Friday. Without meeting me he had offered me a place to stay with his family in Salt Lake. When I arrived to pick up the Blazer he chauffered me to get oil and filter for an oil change. Back at his house he opened his garage to me so I could change oil and check fluid levels while HE swapped out a front axle shaft that had a bad U joint. After that was finished he loaded the blazer with bottles of spare fluids and even a tool or two that I had not brought along that he thought I might need, all without being asked. It almost embarrassed me how well he treated me and I can not say enough good things about Paul and his family and friends. There need to be more people like him in the world. Thanks again for a great trip and a good deal on the K5 Paul!. Hope to see you again sometime. Rich

    Ohhhhhh......new toy. You'll have to come along on the next Colorado trip.

    This place has the most friendly and generous people I've ever met. Everyone is willing to help in some way. It's addicting.
