1972 K/5 Blazer

Career army. Bought the Blazer  brand-new in '72, just back from his fourth Viet Nam tour. The factory color was called 'Ochre". The truck's totally original, except the gas cap and a four-barrel carb. "All the dings, dents, and deer blood--man, that is my history. Know what I'm saying? Why would I want to paint it?"
