This was pretty much mine, except I had a gold vinyl top with a bunch of hail damage. 1980 Buick Century. I traded in 1990 for 300 bucks.

I don't have pictures of my actual college car, but it was one of these:

1976-chevrolet-blazer-4x4.jpeg


1976 K5 Blazer. Same color scheme as well.

I bought it with 175,000 miles on it in and a dead 350.

Dropped a built 327 in it I bought from a buddy and it served me well for years. Good overall vehicle, but the brakes sucked and it took several suspension mods to take the 'mush' out of the rear suspension. The brake issue was common on Chevy trucks back then. Had a '76 3/4 ton Silverado that ate front brakes and didn't stop well.

I loved the K5s!

I didn't have an actual pic, but it looked like this. '93 Chevy Beretta. It had 4 cylinders, a tape deck, air conditioning and a driver's side air bag. Transmission went bad around 150,000 miles

Edit; oops, my bad. This is the car that I first leaned to drive.

It was my dad's old work car. A 1954 Chevy Station Wagon, 6 cyl., w/ 3 on the tree. It was this color and pretty much in this condition...

...and the engine looked like this...

...and...it did have an air cleaner on it. :Lol:


My college car was a 1959 4-door Chevy. It was red but, it sure didn't look this good and it wasn't the Impala. I think it was Chevy's cheapest model at the time. :Biggrin:
