Not so fast! :suburban:

"I'll do the thinin' around here"

I still expect some more entries here.

Thanks for yours, Z.

It is certainly a contender.

I am still hoping to see another approach that occurred to me. Let's see if anyone else might be thinking along those lines.

And no, I'm not giving out any hints.

I have another idea, but I don't know if I'll be able to flesh it out before the end of the contest AND paint/tile my bathroom AND pack for my vacation that starts the week after next. :P I'll give it my best though. If I can't get it out I'm confortable with my entry as it stands now.

One last minute bit of advice to consider:

The parameters laid-out in the rules are pretty simple, but they are not restrictive in lots of ways. For instance, all of the following are true

- the size of the truck isn't specified

- no restriction is made on the source vehicles (any brand could serve as inspiration)

- Beyond being longitudinal, the engine can be whatever you wish.

- No specific generation of the Blazer is a hard and fast template for design.

- Current GM styling is not a requirement

- The traditional ties to the Suburban and pickup are not required.

And that is as close as I will get to giving you hints about the concept in my head.

I really want that freaking watch:

If you could, when you get the time, can you make the back of the truck metal? What I mean is, no removable top (like the '92-'97 Yukon 2-door rather than the '70-'91 Jimmy). I absolutely love your rendition - I was meaning to ask someone to make a Regular Cab, Short Bed out of the Sierra All Terrain HD Concept for me, but your "Jimmy" is close enough. BTW, I printed it out and pinned it to my cubical wall to stare at all day :AH-HA:

Camino, I still think z28 deserves the watch :P

When I first decided to enter this contest I insisted that my entry have a removable top. The fixed roof on the shorty GMT-400s was my ONLY knock against them. Still that would be a relatively easy mod to implement on my current chop, while going hand in hand with the "idea" I alluded to in my previous post. I really hope I can get it done on time.
