hey guys, figured I'd see if anyone chimes in here....I'm looking to possibly get back into a 1st. Gen. S-10 Blazer (2dr/2wd) & just came across this:
I love the fact that it looks well taken care of & is owned by the same person for 20+ years. I also like that the trans is rebuilt. The interior seems pretty clean as well. I guess the only thing that would concern me is the mileage, although I know these engines can last much longer. I'm looking for a reliable daily driver that's not extremely modified, to not only take me around town but also to relieve some stress (mileage) from our 2012 Pilot. I'm just wondering what you folks think about it, & what would be a fair offer based upon your observations?
Ironically, I bought my '88 back in 2007 from the Atlanta area. I sold it in '08 and now kinda wish I still had it ....so it's been about 5 years since I was in the market. I gave $3k for it. It had one repaint, a near perfect interior, 17" wheels, 3/3 drop, billet grille, etc. It also had the 4.3/700R combo with 170k+ original miles. Unfortunately, I unexpectedly had to rebuild the trans. shortly after buying. But it was pretty reliable for the year I owned, & it was no doubt one of the cleanest I've ever seen. I only mention this because it's always hard not to compare everything else to what I had. As many here know, I'm an enthusiast who takes pride in clean automobiles. Pictures of my old '88 here for comparison:
