SITTING DUCK
Clinton, Pennsylvania, resident Michael Blumling and his dad own this ’79 Chevy Blazer, which they bought for $900 more than six years ago, and it’s been sitting around ever since. The rig has only 77,000 miles on it, and it has the stock 305ci motor and 31-inch Goodyear Wranglers. The father and son plan to give it all new sheetmetal, a 4-inch suspension lift, 33-inch tires, an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold and cam, a Holley 600-cfm carb, Hooker headers, new bucket seats, and a 1,200-watt, 10 speaker sound system. They also plan to convert the full-time four-wheel drive to part-time with manual hubs. Sounds like they’ve been planning a lot for six years.
