so the time came to either dump a bunch of money into my s10 blazer to keep it on the road, or find something new to drive.

95 rms
i bought it in ct, and its sitting at my brothers house until i can get down there to pick it up.
took a few pics once we got back to my brothers house.

Nice find Anthony, spotted that when he first listed. Looks like a nice car at a good price.

I kept watching that car and told myself it was probably a rot box. Apparently it isnt. Nice score man.  Arrow

Thank you for buying it, I'd been tempted to call that guy since it was listed  Very Happy 
Out of curiosity, what kind of shape was it in rust wise?

thanks guys.

overall the car is in decent shape.
somebody did a half ass quick fix on the lower rear quarters, should be an easy fix.
there is a little spot on the drivers side wheel well in the trunk where it meets the floor.
and the lower b pillars are bubbling.
nothing that made me want to run for the hills when i saw it.
but i do have a welder, and have done many rust repair jobs before, so maybe im just numb to it... idk

no highly modifying this one.....yet...maybe...no
no caprice nose... the swap looks better the other way, imo

plans for the car?
i dont know yet
bought it as a daily driver, for now
prob do all the cheap/free mods
id like to put a set of ss wheels on it
maybe something with the exhaust

but im really happy with the car
gave the guy $850 for it
took the day off today and went to my brothers house and got the car.
drives nice and smooth, made the 2hr ride no problems

the suburban?
prob be another week or two as long as my free time doesnt get hijacked again.
ill post up some pics as soon as its out of the garage

the blazer?
prob list it on cl for $500obo
if it doesnt sell in a week prob call a scrap yard see if i can get a few hundred for it.
for me to of been happy and know its safe with the kids riding in it, it needs around $1000 worth of parts

Dude that looks great! and the price is right. Topless RMS looks so much better than the vinyl halftop.

Very nice. Love the color, and the fact it is a smooth roof. Needs some wheels.  Wink

Forget the wheels........needs a few bags of sand in the trunk!! Is that from the air shocks or do all RMS's have that rake going on?

First lt-1 right?? Must be loving that power too eh??

its the rear shocks, doesnt matter how much weight you put in it, it pumps back up to the same height.
yep first lt1, it goes pretty good.
