Thank you Bill.

I will miss it, having driven it again this morning.

Still, it has not sold, but the car I have seen, but never seen up in real life, is 300 miles from here, a non Chevy car, straight six and lazy auto box and who knows, it may still not deliver what I need.

I am a truck and commercial type guy.



Copied from a 2007 post.


Something from 2007 in my life.


HERE: http://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/...-german-museum

I had to dredge it up for a different reason and thread for a guy looking for a family car. http://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/...can-family-car






So just reinforces my preference for slightly unusual stuff.

I love Russian and Eastern Bloc cars.

How time flies.

Bought it more than 10 years ago.

And my taste in slightly weird, certainly practical Cars has not really changed.


1963 Ford Taunus Transit.





Would love an 80’s style Bedford or Chevy Dayvan or panelvan.

Re: GRIZZ’s ‘79 - 2WD BLAZER Challenge over in London, England. “~It’s not a Project

So today the one Bootfair was slow, and only half a field.

The second, larger one was filled with pink sh!t and nothing of interest at all.


Still, I managed to buy this roll of upholstery vinyl leatherette for £7.00 or $10.00 and have it planned for the Blazers possible replacement



Ford wagon was 20p or 25cents

I still remember the Pontiac LeMans wagon from a few years ago...... really liked that.

And maybe should have bought it, still, too late for regrets.

https://youtu.be/mc-6QAvT-bc



Found mate @CraigRK a small Meccano bike and sidecar for 50p



So home early.

Haul included these bits.



Bunch of Lesley Matchbox cars and trucks, no idea why, just needed them.




Wagon and Mercedes Benz may be my favourites



Big Union Jack blanket thing is ideal for rear of Blazer or a picnic, and at £1.00 a no brainier, already washed and hung out.



Shell fuel Bowzer will go to St Louis in September for Dennis’ gas station.



Cooler bag and six freezer bricks was £1.00 for Sally, as were three boxes of tea light candles.

So nothing much but a few bargains.

Meanwhile on UKGSER the guys are trying to figure out the possible replacement for the Blazer once it sells.



Next job, cut hedges today.

Not as unrelated as it may seem.

Remember the roll of vinyl Leatherette I bought last weekend?

Unrolled it yesterday to see just how long it is.



Well, more than twice what I thought, so at £7.00 for the roll, makes it cheap.

This is double so x2



And some more, you do the maths.......



Adding it all up, comes to 38 foot by 4 foot or in modern measurement 11.6 meters long and 1.450 wide.

Colour is a bit deceptive at this distance and angle.

Beer cans for colour perspective.

My friend Dennis has been hampered by the amount of rain in Missouri this year, but managed at last to cast the island for his Shell gas station yesterday, and again, it started to rain just as they finished the job.

He also finished an English sign, which in the USA means Burnouts





Almost done, final flatting was due.




The Blazer was parked up outside, sideways on my drive yesterday just in case someone saw it and was interested.

You never know.



And finally, how the day ended here last night.




Waiting for @Disasterbus to get here in half an hour.......

Should be a good visit.

Cool Re: GRIZZ’s ‘79 - 2WD BLAZER Challenge over in London, England. “~It’s not a Project

Just adding these two random clips.

Blazer still for sale, and more importantly, tyre kicking etc.

One clip of wasting fuel on my drive.

https://youtu.be/8E-Kz9IEays

And this one made this morning when mate Kerry came to drop off some stuff for me.

I had to force him to drive the Blazer (NOT)

https://youtu.be/rGRgA7KsufU

The guy is a gentle driver.

Re: GRIZZ’s ‘79 - 2WD BLAZER Challenge over in London, England. “~It’s not a Project

Father’s Day sucks.....

Unless you are a father or have one.

Bootfairs were both small.

This meant having to go slower and looking deeper.

Sally on camera duty it seems.




First blood to me, with a new, unused leather belt for one of my work suits.

Shortly after Craig got a turn.

Fully functioning traffic lights, or Robots as they are known in South Africa

Seller£5.00. Craig £4.00




Next up, three complete units for £7.00



Then Sally saw this balance bike for her grandson. Seller: £5.00 Me: will you take £4.00

Used, but like new.



Retail price for these are a bit more.



Craig again. £2.00 for a mixer tap he plans to use at his caravan camping site with a used kitchen sink that came out my kitchen 8 years ago.



20p for Craig’s collection of small tools.



Seller:10.00 it’s a bargain, got brass cap. Craig: Offer him £8.00



So back home a final pic.

Tap fittings 50p
Two tyre irons for Sally’s son £2.00
Gruffalo mug 50p
4 steel skewers £1.00
3 small Turkish bowls 50p
Work tie for me 20p
Savings tin for Sally’s grandson 50p
3 rolls of yellow masking tape £3.00
Bad Taste Bear 50p





That’s the lot, great weekend too.
