    Default You guy's were right again!

    The comments made the other day about me taking in strays was spot on. Yesterday I was given a 97 S-10 Blazer or what's left of it. The bottom of it is completely eaten up with cancer but the darn thing runs like new. The odometer says it's only got 74,132 miles on it. I'm gonna put for sale signs on it and sit it out by the curb for a week and if it doesn't sell I will yank the motor (4.3 liter V-6) and tranny out and scrap whats left. Anyways you look at it I should still be able to make a couple of hundred bucks from it. Dave

    You meant `87 right? In `94 they went to the rounder body style.

    You might want to keep it and have some fun with it.

    I'm also thinking offroad fun! Strip it down and put a cage around it, do a 14 bolt conversion front and rear and have a blast on the trails.

    Look at the bright side:

    Alum. cans are 71 cents a pound now.
    If you pull out the carpet, ya can reach down and pick them up
    without having to stop & get out.

    Or,
    If ya run out of gas, you can do the 'Fred Flintstone' thing,
    and still get where you're going.

    Looks like someone drove it through a puddle of paint stripper...

    But the price was right
