Here are some of my old toys that went over the years
1974 Chevy Blazer
This was my first car. I was hit by a van 2 weeks after I got it back from the paint shop. These are the only pictures I have of it. Three right before it was painted and two right after.
1968 Jeep CJ-5
This is my second 4x4. I traded a Bug for it. When I got the Jeep nothing worked. The previous owner used a Coke bottle with gas in it to prime it or it wouldn't start. The wiring was shot and most of the carb was missing after a re-build. I got it during my senior year in high school and kept it for 9 years. I still kick myself for selling it. When I got it it had a 225 v6, t-14 three speed, spicer 18 transfer case, dana 44 rearend with 4:88 and a power lock and an open dana 27 front. When I sold it it had a 327 chevy with double hump 1.94 heads, and a turbo 350 transmission. Over the years I went through 3 stock tranmissions, 2 automatics, 3 engines, and 2 frontends. I broke axles in the rearend but never had problems with the powerlock or ring and pinion, and I never broke the transfer case.
1985 Toyota 4x4
I bought this stock in 1990. It was the only year Toyota made EFI with a solid front axle. It went through various stages of lift and tires and ended up with 35's on it most of the time. I put 4:88 gears front and rear and welded the rear spider gears. It was a mountain goat. I should have kept it but I was made an offer I couldn't refuse.
1989 Chevy Sportside Z-71
I bought this truck from a friend the way it was. I drove it for a year and let it go. It was a great truck but wasn't what I wanted for wheeling. I didn't want to beat it up on the rocks.
1972 Chevy Blazer CST
Here are some pictures from a camping trip on Ershim/Dusey trail. We went in from the bottom went up Chicken Rock and camped back at Dusey Creek. My rig was the "chuck wagon". I barely made it in that far. Full size trucks are too wide for the trail and I have a couple of new dents to prove it. We ended up taking a built Toyota with a Marlin crawler and a Tuned Port Wrangler up Thompson hill for lunch. It was a two day trip so we headed back home the way we came in.
The first picture is the camp at Dusey Creek. The second picture is on the way in at the bottom of Chicken rock. And the third picture was on the way out on top of Chicken rock.
