after buying it i found out it had sat for almost 3 years (not good lol)

that same day i bought it i drove to work all pumped about my new ride only to findout AFTER work at about 1 am and 5 degrees above zero my alternator was shot...

next day i got it started again limped it into town replace the alternator

then i got my roof lights on and wired up with some new halogen high and low beams

after that nothin really special happened besides some stickers and whatnot till july 4th 2011 ...it happened...following my grandpa to find some place to eat before my dad flew home we passed a place and went to turn around in a parking lot so i followed him around got back on the road went on the gas and she just reved...i lookded down to make sure i didnt bump it into netrual ..still in drive..shift down to 3rd..nothing 2nd 1st...nothing nothing...tranny was gone..not a clanck, crack. pop, or squeel ...just nothing...

so i had to park my loved blazer for about 6 months before i saved up enough money to have it fixed. and finally i got her back and running and as a treat to myself (tranny didnt cost as much as i thought) figured a little system in her was due
