well its one of those Blazers that if you see it you will know it and you wont forget it. its 72 K5 White sits on 44's TSl boggers, sits about 6 feet at the top of the hood. it was right across from papa johns. i think that was the pizza place. and next to it there was a used car lot. its been awhile since i have been over in that area.

well basically because he was just good and noone cold beat him. he built the blazer so well that he never would get stuck. the only people that could beat him were the guys that went over the top and making alcohol mudders and nitrous even tho the only vehicle that could race had to be street legal. it was the same reason why he stopped racing stock cars also. he just couldnt go any higher and there was no competition for him so it wasnt fun. and he sold his shop because he has carpel tunnel in both hands and couldnt turn wrenches anymore.

Ill be building my truck to be street riven and race. Putting the body of my 67' jeep pickup onto a 75 chevy K20 frame for better drivetrain and parts availability. And i need to whoop my friends truck

heres my truck as it sits now (not exactly, its mostly disassembled and ready for the chevy frame)




And heres my buddys truck that im going to put to shame





His truck sits on a 76' chevy shortbox frame where mine will be on a modified long box frame cut down to 126" to fit my cab and bed properly. as far as motors go my 383 will far surpass his 350

Oh trust me it'll see lots of mud sorry went back and looked at my post and said it'll be street driven. I meant it will also be my daily driver. I do what I can to not avoid mud haha and that has left me stuck a few times over the years
