I like cats. Deal with it

I'm betting the hood's probably going to start losing its paint soon. Maybe even the roof. Not sure if I care too much

Could I just need a new shift solenoid, or am I looking at future problems.... lol. It's still smooth, just delayed.

I have not searched anywhere yet for solutions yet so bear that in mind lol.

Been busy fixing it up for one. Bought it for just under $1k, straight clean frame, straight clean body save for a gash in the left rear quarter "fender flare" area next to the gas door. Good running engine, good transmission save for that one thing, 3.42 open rear... Lot of work needed tho. Gonna be my gas mileage saver vehicle, over Sierra's 17mpg lol. Well, once I get done rebuilding it basically. Drove this blazer from Dallas after buying it, and even with a plugged cat (slightly alleviated by some holes drilled in the exhaust pipe by the PO), shitty loose and badly aligned steering and mostly shot tires, I still got 20mpg. I'm betting I can pull a solid 25 out of it.

No pictures since, because my phone's been an asshole and the camera app is broken, my SX230's LCD doesn't work anymore, and my SX20 refuses to read memory cards. Sooooo, I'm photo-less right now, and I just can't figure I have enough reason to get a new camera. ... I guess I could use the GoPro. But you know, as soon as I try to, something's gonna **** off on it
I just replaced the trans in the wife trailblazer at 181k miles. Mine shifts fine so far at only 43k miles on the clock.

She was making some light squealing sound that was un usual to hear. The sun shell or whatever they call it now, let loose like the old 700r4's. No 2nd, od and reverse.

What fun. I think I'll just replace it with a T56.
