Up for bid is a 1993 Chevy Blazer with a 5-speed manual transmission.
I purchased this back early this year, did some cosmetic detailing and enjoyed it since then. I'm interested in moving on to another project, so this is ready for a new home. Please note that my auction descriptions are as thorough as possible. I would rather you not bid on my vehicle because of something you know instead of being unhappy because of something you did not know.
Overall this Blazer is in good condition, but not perfect. It has just over 300,000 miles and is largely original. It is a very rare 5-speed...only 525 manual-trans Blazers were produced in '93 and all had to be special ordered. This one is loaded with nice options including Z71 package, BYP fender flares, 3.73 rear ratio, power driver seat, AM/FM Cassette w/ EQ, block heater, pw, pdl, cruise, overhead console, etc. Suffice to say there are not many like it left.
Mechanically, this Blazer seems to be solid. The engine runs good, doesn't leak anything and is quiet. There is an occasional puff of valve seal smoke, but oil use is minimal especially considering the mileage. The clutch works well and has a lot of pedal. NV3500 transmission works good, no noises or weird behavior. 4wd works as it should. AC works good, cruise control works good also. I put on two new tires over the summer as well.
Outside, the Blazer is in decent shape. It's hit something in the past and it's evident the front clip has been replaced. It was painted afterward, but I think that's the extent of it, I don't think there are any sins covered up. The only rust I can find is two soft spots in the same location on each side, which is immediately in front of the rear wheels. Apparently that's pretty common on these. Otherwise everything looks super solid. We did repaint the lower third and the bumpers. Doors close good, glass is good.
Inside is about the equal of the outside. The front seats have been updated to the '95-99 style and work fine. I have the original passenger seat, but discarded the driver seat since it was unusable. Carpet is good but old. All accessories work fine.
In conclusion, this is a nice Blazer to restore or have fun with. Although it is very rare, it is no longer pristine enough to preclude modifying it to suit your preferences and you can get in at a pretty good price.
If you are local you are welcome to inspect it in person.
This is a no-reserve auction. What it starts at is what I have to get for it, so please do not message me with low-ball offers. I do not acknowledge zero bidders unless you contact me by phone before auction end. The winning bidder will remit a $250 good faith deposit within 5 business days after auction close unless you are nearby and make other arrangements with me. Pickup is within a reasonable time-frame.
Vehicle is located in Huntsville, AL. You will receive the clean, clear vehicle title and a bill-of-sale upon payment. This Blazer is fully capable of being driven back to your destination.
Please ask any questions you wish. Again, I do not entertain low-balls or nor will i end the auction early.
Thanks, and happy bidding!

Race Recap: 2013 Indianapolis 500 better than Bollywood; all the emotion, none of the music [spoilers]Mon, 27 May 2013
If the 2013 Indy 500 were a movie it would be the one expected to win all the little statues come awards season, and if it were an athlete it would have made spectators watch in awe as it broke record after record. And this kind of talk comes after last year's race was considered one of the best ever - the last lap hijinks in 2012 and Takuma Sato's crash leading to a podium ceremony straight out of a Golden Globes tearjerker.
But this year's race delivered more than anyone expected, from the 250,000 fans to the commentators to the IndyCar series itself and, finally, to the guy who hopped through a two-mile window on Lap 197 to take the lead and keep it until the end.
Like the Fast & Furious franchise, the Michael Bay-directed series of Transformers movies has become known as much for its bad acting as its impressive lineup of cars. As filming just started for Transformers 4, Bay's website has confirmed two new cars for the next installment as well as a makeover for everyone's favorite tractor trailer hero, Optimus Prime.
Joining the cast of T4 are a "race-inspired" Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. While Bay's website did not supply names for either car, Bugatti is reporting on its Facebook page that the Veyron will join the Autobots. Speaking of the good guys, top Autobot Optimus Prime is getting an all-new body based on a Western Star with a gaudy appearance that was seemingly inspired by Trick My Truck - right down to the six smoke stacks and side pipes!
It won't be long before we see the official, production-ready Chevrolet SS sedan (hint: it will be revealed this weekend). And to tide us over until all of the official details are released about the US-spec version, we have this: the Holden VF Commodore SS V show car, a performance-oriented brother to the Calais V that debuted earlier in the week.
What we really want to know about the SS V is what lies underhood, but General Motors' Australian arm is keeping that under wraps until the Chevy model breaks cover this weekend. Nevertheless, it's obvious that the SS V will be a serious performer, with all sorts of aggressive cues driving that home on the car's exterior. Take a look at those 20-inch billet aluminum wheels that hide big Brembo brake calipers up front, the sculpted hood and front fascia, the wide air intakes with LED running lights and the quad exhaust pipes out back. It's like the Pontiac G8 GXP never even left us.
Inside, there's a sporty-looking interior with aluminum accents that mix in with black leather and suede surfaces, all tied together in the middle with an eight-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system. It looks great, and again, while we don't know anything regarding powertrain details, it makes us oh-so happy to see a manual shifter smack dab in the middle of the center console.
