Max Picton gets the long-distance award for his drive from Calgary, British Columbia, Canada, in his '78 K5. The factory 350 with a classic granny-low SM465 and super-durable 205 work with swapped-in GM 1-ton axles, rear Detroit locker, and 36-inch swampers to give him the off-road survivability to make it back home. A two-year veteran of the Blazer Bash, Max drove the trails and had a good time with no major problems or drama. With a complete redo of his K5 in the works, he'll be running the hardest trails at next year's event.
