Default Blazer is being retired...

from daily driving duties. Went and picked up the replacement Friday. So far so good, I am actually loving this car. Never thought I would really get anything else to replace the Blazer.

Anyway it's an 08 Magnum SXT AWD with 29K miles

as of now I am keeping the blazer and perhaps actually making a project out of it. so hard to do with it being a daily driver. The transmission in the Typhoon crapped out and I think I have found a replacement for sale that I will probably jump on.

thanks guys, I figured I pretty much have to keep the Blazer since it needs some work so I wouldn't feel right selling it to someone and if I did I wouldn't feel right asking for any amount of money that would warrant me getting rid of it. I think the wife would like me to get rid of it but I get really attached to vehicles. That and this is pretty much my first vehicle, bought it with my part time job going through college and I just don't want to see that end yet .

I did drive the blazer to work today...I think it is finally getting broken in

well since it's your first ride..............i won't "jump" @ the chance to grab it up from you.


now............if you need to unload that Typhoon to make some room.................my Southern Belle needs another rust free barn mate to keep her company.

Nice looking ride. Out of curiosity how much did you lower the blazer?
