My first car when I was 16 was a 1984 S-10 Blazer. The Typhoon was always the dream. When living in Europe, I found one in the classified. Sceptical, I embarked on a 500 KM trip to see it for myself. Upon the opening of the garage I fell in love. The 4.3 turbo screamed down tiny German country roads, and its AWD hugged the winding roads effortlessly. Coupled with 18" 16 spoke OZ tires, the ground spoilers, side skirts and tinted windows, the car was a knockout beauty.Thanks GMC.
The exterior is what really stands out upon first seeing the car. But its interior is truly luxurious. Not leaving any facet of the car to the ho-hum, a 4.3l turbo powers the AWD, whose 30 front / 70 rear power split perfectly tears up winding roads and drag strips alike. FUN FUN FUN.
It looks so good outside, all that's really needed are clearlights and new wheels. The inside is immaculate, however a new stereo would almost be a necessity.
