|Further Description/Back Story||I wanted to recreate the nostalgia of the end of an Era. Where the great looking cars from the 70's evolved to the new technologies and all its nuances that came with it, (Fuel Injection and Computers).
I was a child and perfectly remember my dad taking us in the Chevy Blazer that, to my impression was a gigantic play ground when going to the camper area in the back of the truck.
I was able to find the exact model of Wheels and tires as I remember them from my childhood. Chrome with center cap and BFGoodrich T/A All terrain tires.
Enough said, great times to drive a car.
