I think its kinda funny reading how you young guys view the technology from the '70s.

When I was helping my dad restore his 72 blazer, it really made me wish for the simplicity they had..... but itís hard to give up the creature comforts Iíve become accustom to in newer rigs.

Thatís my next project.
This one needs a complete frame off restoration. My bought it for my Dad in 83í and Iíve had it for awhile. Rings are toast and the trans will knock your teeth out when itís cold. But itís sentimental!

What work I did to it is kinda janky because it was my learning curve lol

Iíve heard that the old blazers are easy to change body panels on. Something about drilling the tack welds in the door well will drop the bed side? There isnít any rust just dents on the corners one of which ripped the steel
