'71 K5 Blazer CST "Mean Green"

Overview

I've wanted a first gen blazer or Jimmy for a long time. I want a lot of different vehicles actually, but only buy when I feel it's a good or great deal. Anyways I posted an ad on craigslist in search of 69-72 blazers and Jimmys. My phone was off the hook actually for a few weeks. Lots of over priced junk, and lots of nice ones way out of my spending range. A guy from Iowa got ahold of me last Friday and said he had a cst project. We talked about it for about 10 mins and then he said he'd send pics Saturday. He's the third owner and got it to restore, but decided it was more than he was up to do after bringing it home so it sat for a year or so. I got the pics and they showed normal rust and some tiny stuff missing. Made plans to go see it the following a Wednesday, and pulled it home with me. It's rusty, but complete and original, and that's what I wanted the most. Just some pics of the thing he sent and a few I snapped of it.

Picked up this ‘70 Blazer yesterday. Been sitting since 2011 basically. Font axle needs new u joints, ignition needs a tune up, and brakes need gone through. It did drive itself up on the trailer though. Body is in ok shape. Interior is all there. Probably won’t find a better one for the kinda money I want to spend on one, so I think this is THE one. I want to add azero rates to the sagging rear to level it out as well. Needs a better rear bumper too. Here are some pics.

Bought a ‘90 Jimmy off of another member on here, @Chinahands. He sent me a snap of it before it was shipped from Wyoming to Nebraska and I was super jealous. As soon as I saw it in person I kept hinting to him I’d like to buy it and now I own it. Original paint, solid body, and my favorite part, a manual. Already has ORD shackle flip, BDS front springs, BDS/Fox 2.0 shocks, and 33/12.5/15 toyo’s. Kicking around what needs done next, but have been just driving and enjoying for now.

I took a leap and paid the money to be able to upload pics on here via my phone, so that I could start a thread. I suck at forums so it was worth the few bucks. I'll just add the $25 to my trucks total cost. Anyhow, my truck is a '85 k20 custom deluxe that had been passed around in my family for a while until I sold it about 8 years ago. Was a company truck for a fertilizer company where my uncle drove it and later purchased it, his son drove it for a while, then my dad had it, my self, and...
