I have a 1973 Blazer project for sell. I have been working on it for 12 years and lost interest in it. I have all new sheet metal for. It has a 350 motor with 5000 miles on it. It has a RV cam and flathead pistons. I am willing to sell it with the motor or without. I am asking $1500 additional for the motor left in the blazer. The transmission is a 350 turbo with a stage 2 shift kit that has not been on the road. The rear ends are 3.73. Also there is a mid 80's frame under it because the old one rotted out. It has been painted with POR 15 on the inside frame rails and the whole thing has epoxy primer and silver base coat clear on it. Below are all of the new items I have for it.
Steel cowl hood, radiator support, outer fenders and fiberglass inner fenders, new doors, inner and outer rocker panels, new quarter panels, the rear half of the bed floor has been replaced along with the cross members and rear tailpan. The tailgate and roof are original. I also have all the glass and new door panels, new door handles and headlight bezels. There might be some I am leaving out but any questions please call or text me at 724-944-7580.
The current wait time for a new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is well, not short. With word of a strike at the Bowling Green, KY factory responsible for seventh-generation sports car, though, that wait time could end up growing substantially.
Now, a strike is still a ways off. UAW Local 2164, which represents the 800 workers responsible for screwing the Corvette together, is set to vote on authorizing a strike today, but even if the employees give the action a go, it's far from a sure thing. According to The Tennessean, both regional and national union officials would need to put their stamp of approval on strike action.
"The membership has to vote to strike, but it's just a step in the process," said Gary Casteel, the UAW's Region 8 director and one of the people that would need to authorize a strike action. Casteel told The Tennessean, "It's purely a local situation, though. They are having some issues with the local management."

The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."
Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
