Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Cool, I like the idea of having the call outs for what it really is.

K5 sounds so much better.

Never made C5 blazers...

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

[QUOTE=LUV2XCLR8;3162219]I didn't have a build thread so I guess I need to start one.

This thing is also known to some others as "YFTSB"

Like Twisted78SS says, To build something GM didn't.=QUOTE]

I'm with you on that build. Look in my sig. I had started on my "Yenko 427 ST" pickup then had to put it in storage when I moved overseas for a few years. My time is up here in 4 months and I will be back home bringing it out of mothballs (just who named those things) and get started back on it. I will keep my eyes glued to this build.

An even better question would be how would you harvest them? Must be a lot of eunich moths out there.

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Not any progress to speak of, the frame, crossmember, and
steering center link are headed off this week to get blasted
and powdercoated. Thanks 2 Chuck (lonerife) for picking up
some rollers for the project until I can order my new wheels.
(Craigslist set of 17x8 Eagle 212's 5.0 BS w/ Tires for $300)
and Tomorrow I'm taking lots of pic's to please you all

UPS deliveries seem better that Christmas morning to me - mainly since they happen more than once a year.. Looks like some great goodies..

Well before I post this linky, the lighting sucks,
it was dreary outside, & these are with my cell.
