I shouldn't even be considering this...

268 posts in this topic

But a good friend of mine called me up to say that he had a line on a '92 K-5 Blazer with a 5spd. manual - going cheap.

Newer engine, inspected and legal, not rusty...

I'm trying to forget that I know about it.

I like how the Oshkosh has the same rectangular eggcrate grillework as the K2500 next to it.

A manual has to be pretty rare in a '92.. that was the first year of the '88 style pickup platform for the Blazer, wasn't it? Those were neat wagons.

Dounds like a sweet ride. You know I love those things. Is the engine a direct replacement for the TBI 350 that came stock, or is it something more potent. Does it have the rear barn doors?

I loved my one off 1985 blazer with the iron duke and a 5 speed. yeah try to find one of those babies. I didn't know until after i sold it that it was a prototype prep vehicle. I had so much fun in that suv. In 4x4 you could do more than what my 02 Sierra can do. Its just it was rusting and i was on the 5-6 clutch and it had 200k on it. At the end it would top out at 59 mph in 5th floored.

Paint it pink

Believe it or not...Tim Porter, my old neighbor used to build trucks for people, and had one of his trucks featured in a magazine.

He had a guy want a truck in pink...guy was 6'7", Army ranger. Got what he wanted.

Stranger than fiction, yes.

Camino, life is short and if things keep going to crap in ten years we'll all be in human powered rickshaws and cars will be a distant memeory.

Buy the damned Blazer and enjoy it while you can.

Nothing wrong with human powered rickshaws.

Isn't GM working on a rickshaw sorta thingy with Segway?

I'm being pushed over the edge with a silly low price, so I have to at least go look it over. The engine is an update, but I don't have all of the particulars yet.

Sadly, no barn doors - but the 5spd. makes up for it.

As Mol..., I mean Cube says, they are quite rare.

Now to find the time to take a look.
