    Yeah I hear ya. But I'm 39 and still enjoy it. But you are right it's a new generation so things are different now.

    lets face it guys, now you can buy a truck with 2-3 times the power and not have to touch it. That and everyone is jumping on the jacked up diesel banwagan.....rollin coal! Sad when my blazer is about the only 1st gen I see on the road in a given day.

    I haven't seen a mini truck in ages. I moved over a year ago and my Blazer is still at my Dad's house (and it sat there for about 3 years before I moved). I just came to the decision a few days ago to give up on it. It was a rust bucket to begin with and all of the parts I had accumulated over the years are rotting away too. Its a shame, but it seems to be the natural progression of things. I work my ass off to keep my bills paid and 2 cars on the road. At the end of the day there is just no time or money left over for a project. Fact is, I'd rather be customizing my house anyway. I might not be able to put airbags on it, but that new laundry room sure is baller!

    LOL, mine's a daily for me so working on mine is a must. It's crazy how the scene has calmed down so much. Good luck with the how. If you give up maybe you can sell parts off and use the money toward the house. Good luck with it either way.

    The parts I have are definitely going to be sold off. I've only got a few worthwhile things though... bolt in notch, 3" leaf springs, billet grill, bumper cover, old small block...

    Oh ok cool. If I had some money I'd be interested in the bumper cover if it fits a 1st gen. Any chance you have a driverside power window switch and the plug that goes to it with a little wire on it. If you do I'm in dier need of one. But only if the price is right and you can hold it till the 3rd. Mine is falling apart and I can't find a good used one out here yet.

    Well mine is an '84 with power nothing. I'll have pics soon. The bumper cover is actually my favorite find. Its rare enough I've never seen another one. But it sorta kinda looks like BL1's. Its more of an under the bumper airdam I guess.

    funny how the house comes before the vehicles now. I'm about to put tile in my kitchen, but building traction bars at the same time. lol

    pic of the air dam would be nice.

    I've finally got some pics.

    This first one is hard to see the fog light indentions. They are tear drop shaped.


    I've also got a 12 bar grill for the old style 3 piece setup.


    A set of 3" drop leaf springs


    Side mirrors and clear markers


    Steel Roll Pan (Used and removed)


    And a bolt in step notch


    I intend to post this stuff on Craigslist as I'd rather not deal with shipping any of this stuff. If anyone here REALLY wants anything here I'll work on making a deal happen. I am practically giving this stuff away since I just sold the Blazer yesterday. For more pictures (and pics of the 350 for sale) you can go here: http://s10blazed.com/Craigslist/
