Unbelievable news !
Well, I got tired of it all. Tired of never finding a front axle and broke becuse I have to rebuild trannys, t-cases and driveshafts, so I put out an ad on the internet trying to sell the two Blazers I have, plus all the extra equipment (two 14-bolts, extra set of doors, spare engine parts etc.etc.) and it looks like itīs going my way. One guy called me up, I made a good deal and soon I have $2800 burning in my pocket. Can you believe that?[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] $2800 for lots of junk ![img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. I will OF COURSE hang on to the 406 and maybe throw some more money in it. Thinking of going solid cam now when Comp Cams releases their Xtreme Energy line in solid cams and pick up 30 hp/30 ft.lbs. The next car of choice is narrowed down to three alternatives.
*Late sixties/early seventies 2wd pickup.
*Late sixties/early seventies Blazer with no lift in sight[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img].
*Late sixties/early seventies El Camino.
I still love the truck "style". Maybe Iīll settle for a mid-seventies 2wd pickup because theyīre so plentiful. I donīt want any smog-hassle or electrical options [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img], so anything from the 70īs is OK as long as theyīre not completly rusted out.
I learned over the past 3 years owning an American vehicle that the thing I really like to work on is V8 engines, as most of you probably have figured out. If I knew that from the beginning I would be out burning tires right now [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Is it ok if I still hang out here, hassle Shaggy and talk to Dave every now and then? even though I donīt own a 4wd car (if Iīm not ending up with an early Blazer [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img])
