It is a $400 1991 Blazer Sport 4 door bought for the princely sum of $400 off Craigslist and driven home on 2 cylinders. Turned out to be a super easy fix and I've been driving it off and on ever since. It's never left me stranded and never really broke down on me until recently when the speedometer wires got pinched in the transfer case shifter and shorted out. It's also 99.9% rust free.

I had specifically wanted a 4.3 TBI truck with a floor shifted transfer case. I wasn't looking for a 4 door but this one was too nice to pass up and now I actually prefer the 4 door.

Updated chime module with automatic locks that lock at 9MPH, turn signal chime if I leave my signal on too long: 1996 Olds Cutlass (my chime is a less annoying "ding, ding, ding" instead of the original "doooooooooooooooooot"

I have some more plans for it, but I'll need some rare parts to complete them.
