New from Corpus Christi...

I live in Corpus and have been into cars my whole life. I just picked up an 87 k5 blazer with 140k on it. Its in terrible shape body wise but I have it running quite good. It came with factory possi-traction, and dual shocks in the front.

Im only going to be building it for a mild setup, ive been having a ton of fun running around on local trails with some friends. I dont want to spend much on it, I bought it running for only 400$. The rust is beyond fixable on it, sadly this body has about the worst car cancer I have had to deal with. Its just going to be an off-road only beater.

Here are some pictures.




My only plans at the moment are getting some more power out of the 350, maybe a 2" suspension lift, and some larger or equal sized mud/ all-terrain tires.

My other cars are much nicer, I frequent drift events through Texas as much as I can, this is my main love. Ive been into road racing and drifting in miatas for about 4.5 years not and I love it.





My old car rapping a shitty driver in a rad Porsche



and my daily bro-dozer / tow rig



I am familiar with cars, mostly Miatas, BMWs, and some nissans, and do all my work for the most part myself. I have done alot of research but will have some questions that im sure can be answered on this forum.

Hope to meet some of you guys,
Kris

Nothing really local that's legal, and what little there is is salt mud. Most of the wheeling we do is 4+ hours away.

I would love to do these things, I even work at a Fab shop so making custom parts is something I can, and have done. I just feel like I would be putting money into a dieing truck, the rust is terrible.

I found the site by just searching for forums, googled south texas 4x4 forum and this one popped up!

Thanks again everyone for the warm welcome

Stuffed 35's on the stock truck, trimmed the hell out of the fenders and nothing rubs. Put new front pads on it, hung out with my bad *** dog, weekend was pretty good.
