Nice progress...

I think next summer I will need to have a 'get together' so I can get some stuff around here done.

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

This is where I sound like a dumb foreigner but can someone explain what the deal with Yenko is? I'm assuming it was some aftermarket tuner/builder.

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

PA folks do it right

What they said above. He was a dealer in southwestern Pennsylvania who put together some wild combination muscle cars. He did an LS7 454 rebuild for me on an engine i used in my 58 Chevy.

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Thanks, an interesting read, we've had a few similar guys/companies here over the years, most seemed to end up getting screwed over by the manufacturers when they realised that there was a market for that kind of car and started to make them officially.

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Been 4 months since my last update, still chasing down issues like
wiring, cables, leaks, etc ..... Only thing new is that I pre-ordered
one of those Smoothie front bumpers through Tim at Top Banana.

(This summer was so stinking hot that I just didn't get much done)

EDIT: Still no maiden voyage, maybe by end of October?

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Still on jack stands, don't even know where to begin,
almost traded her off last month but I backed out at
the very last minute, maybe this Spring it will move?

(I tried to save $ in 3 areas, all 3 bit me in the arse)

Most of us have learned the hard way about saving money and cutting corners..... Hang in there, stay focused and do a little every day.

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

A little bit of Progress and a Name Change. I gave up on
the "Yenko C5 Blazer" and renamed it to "SQ VET" which
stands for "Square Corvette". (A lot of stuff on it is Vet
related and I changed my mind on the Exterior color to.)

*If a Mod could change my thread title I'd appreciate it.

Warning ~ These are Crummy arse Cell video's of My ride.
