A rough life Blazer gets a second chance.

1996 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4dr SUV 4WD
I have a Black Chevrolet Blazer LT 4x4 that has been in my family for as is old. I'm the third person to hold it, and its had a rough life before I held it. It went from being hardly used sitting half its life, to being used rough and not being taken care of, as a result it blew a motor and was expensive to get replaced. Since its been with me its been a neat project car and daily driver. The physical condition is excellent, and the new motor has been plenty reliable, with a few ticks every now and then in the cold. Probably some piston slap. Note the second engine in it is used w/ 100k+ miles. With minor additions to the engine I've done, runs and drives like new. It's a great car for me.
The 4 wheel drive is great to have.
Big cargo in a small package.
Hands down fun SUV to drive.
Reliablility is fair - good, just take care of it for a confident experience.
Good looking exterior appearance.
Transmission shifts smooth.
Great highway passing power.
Overall, solid car. Just be sure you get the right one.
