The Chevrolet K5 Blazer was a revolutionary vehicle in an era before SUVs. This 1970 Blazer on eBay, however, separates the men from the boys. It has a supercharger. It’s high off the ground so that you can feel mighty and superior. It has big wheels and stripes for all the offroading that you won’t be doing, as knowing that it can (and looking the part) can make you feel more comfortable and confident. Plus, it has a powerful sound system to go with that Vortex-fed 350.
So it’s more of a toy for the virile, but so what? It’s cool and has had 50 grand put into it. Does it look absolutely ridiculous in suburban Clovis, California? It looks absurd. Does it stand out? Oh yes, it certainly does. Drive 90 minutes and you’ll find yourself in the middle of the Sequoia National Forest. That’s the opportunity this owner has—not many other vehicles fit that bill.
Right now, this Blazer is sitting at $20,100. It’s only had two bids. The auction will finish on June 29, 2014, and somebody will get themselves an apocalyptic 1970 Blazer. This is your chance to snatch up a fun American ride without having to remortgage your home.
