July 2007 TOTM
 
The theme for this month’s TOTM is

Blazin' Squad

Now here are the rules or criteria for the vehicles being nominated

To be nominated for this month’s theme

• Open to all years and models of 2WD Blazers & Jimmys
• It must be together and able to move on its own power.
• It must be currently street legal.
• If the truck has won a TOTM already in 2006 or 2007, you are ineligible. If you were nominated but were not selected as a TOTM winner then you may be nominated and compete in this month's category.

To Nominate:

You or someone else may nominate your truck. Just add the nomination to this thread. We will need a picture or two of the nominee vehicle, the owner’s board name, and the basics specs of the truck (year, engine/drive train specs). You or your nominator can provide additional info if desired.

Nominees will run through July 23. If additional information is needed, then I will PM the first 15 nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. You can PM me for an e-mail address in case anyone has problems resizing them for the board. A Poll Thread will be set up in this board area. An announcement will be posted on the Discussion Boards to notify all of the voting. The Poll will start to run on July 24 and will run until July 30. The official announcement of the winner will be on July 31. The announcement of this month’s TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

OK, let's get those nominations rolling!

I nominate that I visit the Blazer portion of this board more often. So many beautiful rides I may have to refrain from voting. Nice work, folks.

Thanks for the nomination gringo - I'll post some better pics and info later today.

As for me, it may be shooting myself in the foot, but I nominate slogo. That has to be one of the baddest 2wd blazers around.

Re: July 2007 TOTM -
 
Sure is some serious competition! The 2wd Blazers here are way nicer than all the Blazers I've seen at all the car shows I've been to put together. It's crazy how popular our trucks are getting, seems like there are so many more popping up now than there were when I joined this board. Or maybe there are just more of us finally finishing them.:cool:

Here are some better pics and info on mine:

- 72 Factory 2wd, A/C Blazer
- Built 350, 350 trans
- Pearl white paint, gray pinstriping, gray leather custom interior
- Bagged on 20" Bonspeed Huntingtons
