Re: How about some pics of 2wd Blazers, Jimmy's & Burbs?

Mr. Life99, Just bought it and now driving it to familiarize myself with it. Runs strong, stops good, and shifts smoothly. I'm satisfied with this purchase. I like this forum. This community is similiar to the Vdub scene. ( I have a 61 bug). Thanks for the props tho!

I emailed the guy a few times about that one but he didn't really answer any of my questions and I got a "sketchy" vibe?
It got down to a good price though.

I called him and he was up front. The price was right on. Everythings tight and runs super strong. Great find. I was looking for a K5 or S 10. I like the K5's better!

Hello all, new to the forum. Lots of good info here. This is a Blazer I picked up last month, needs some work but I think it is a pretty good start.

Re: How about some pics of 2wd Blazers, Jimmy's & Burbs?

1982, stock 350/TH350, spindles and springs in the front and de arched springs in the back (not sure I like those much). It's pretty clean but has been sitting most of the time since 1999 I think it was. The guy that I bought it from had most of the work done but he stopped working on it and parked it for some reason. Saw it on Craigslist and could not pass it up. It has a few small wiring issues and the motor is not real strong but alot of the work has already been done and it is pretty clean. Unfortunatly I end up redoing alot of what I buy to make it my own anyways. Looking at the Blazers on this site I have some changes I would like to do to this one.

Thanks, this style Boss wheel isnt exactly what I wanted for this but the price was right and I think they look alot better than the wheels it came with when purchased.

After this week in Alberta I think I might just move to Oklahoma.. It was -46 degrees celsius WITHOUT the windchill at one point. Kinda hard to have a winter project when you got more vehicles then garage stalls.

BGRAFX ...... ouch ..... those hurt. I can remember shoveling that white stuff ....... not anymore though!!! It's the sunny (most of the year) south for me .... although unusually wet this year.

The yello burb is wicked.

That orange one belongs to a guy named josh and that has got to be the most bad ass burb i've ever seen. That is my motivational poster for building my burb.

Cochino- The wheels are Boss-301 model, 20x8. Not sure the back space. The tires are 275/35/20. I picked them up second hand so I dont have all of specs. The front center caps didnt works and designed, the metal ring was hitting the hub and the cap wouldnt go on. Had to take the metal ring out, put a little silicone on the inner lip and it worked then, other than that they bolted up nice.
