Over the weekend I sold a few things Saturday morning so I had some money and knew of a vehicle I wanted to buy. So I went and bought it lol. It's a 85 Chevy K5 Blazer. It's rough, not running, the body is pretty bad and it's been sitting for 10 years roughly. Luckily I only roughly scrap price for it and I have no plans of ever making this road worthy again. I want to use it to play around in the woods and mud with, basically just a weekend toy lol. In about three weeks I'll be able to get it home and see if it will fire up. If it won't run at least I can scrap it for what I paid for it. Adding this one to my current vehicle count I now own 4 Chevys.

Looks like you will have fun getting it out of there.  If it doesn't run just call Uncle Willie to come get it. He could us a road trip. :thumbs:

Well, it's definintely been sitting a while, look how far the front rims are in the ground. Have fun getting it out!!!

 

I had an '87 K5, other than my 72 Cutlass, that was my favorite vehicle I've owned, wished I had the spare cash to own another as a toy. I sold it to my BIL who drove it and overheated, cracked the heads. I sold it to a corwker who has it know sitting in a field somewhere. Cancer ate it up pretty bad. BeforeI sold to coworker, I almost yanked the body and dropped the 80 Z28 on it as it has rusted frame rails which I would've converted to full frame.

 

 

This was mine. Lifted 3", 33" tires, warmed up 350.

I'm hoping just one. Luckily I have access to bigger tractor and a Case 580 backhoe if I would need it. I also have friends with trucks and trailers that can haul it for me. It's only a mile up the road from my house so I won't have to move it far.

The blazer was, that pic was from 1999. It probably looks like the one you are getting, maybe worse. I know it's been sitting by a barn for at least 4 years now and it only had half a body back then due to rust.

 

The truck is getting rough, been sitting too long. It was in a yellow primer, but it's been sitting, rust holes are starting to develop now. I may try to get the local vocational school to take it in as a body shop project!
