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])

Re: Unbelievable news !

Hey, make sure you get enough money out of the blazer to pay for all that bondo you had to buy[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Welp, can't wait for the next EAOA to come out now[img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img].

Re: Unbelievable news !

Andreas,
I think you will change your mind, and find a GM 4WD vehicle in your near future. Maybe this time, all you'll need to do is just install the 406 to make you happy. I'm sure sooner or later you will get board with just paved roads to drive on with a 2WD.
Hope to hear from you soon,
dave

Re: Unbelievable news !

Dave. I dunno about being bored with paved roads. I really like dragracing and all that comes with it (smoke, fire etc.etc [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]). Just sold the hydraulic XE274 as we speak and now Iīm going for a solid Xtreme Energy. 268 or 274, that is the question. Check them out. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.compcams.com/information/whatsnew/NewsDetails.asp?ListHistoryID=-1371474547>http://www.compcams.com/information/whatsnew/NewsDetails.asp?ListHistoryID=-1371474547</a>

Shaggy, yes. I had that feeling too [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. Too bad frontaxles are super rare birds over here.

Jason, bondo was included in the price. Iīm still amazed the guy wanted to buy it [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] I didnīt wanna trick him and sent pictures of the bodywork. He just didnīt care and thank God for that [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img].Thanks for your understanding boys and you didnīt really think Iīd leave did you, even if you all told me so? [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
