Stored Low, Stored Perpetually


About ten years in the past I noticed this great thing about an orange Blazer at a automobile present in Durham referred to as Excessive Invasion.

Of all of the automobiles at that occasion it’s the one I take into consideration most to today.

I’m a Blazer nut and for those who observe the location you already know this. Of the entire Blazers to ever come out of Ontario this truck is in my view probably the greatest.

Heck, I’d even go so far as to say it’s probably the greatest S vans to come back out of Ontario interval.

Later I discovered the truck was owned by Sean Johnston by way of Mike McConnell who took these pictures at Toronto’s Motorama.

Even now, taking a look at pictures of the truck my opinion has not modified. It’s extraordinarily effectively achieved, and the modifications have withstood the check of time.

Nevertheless lately –by way of the superior Minitruckin, The place Are They Now?– group on Fb I found one thing that blew my thoughts. This orange model of the truck is just not its first, and even re-evaluation. It’s the third.

The truck was initially teal and purple the primary time it debuted. The look is definitive 80s/90s minitruckin’

Apparently there was additionally a purple model between this one and the orange one, which was when the truck was first bagged, however earlier than it was physique dropped.

Sean nonetheless has the truck, creeping up on thirty years now, and the photograph above is the final time it was out.

I hope to have the ability to have an identical journey with my very own truck, Undertaking Why Wait, when it’s achieved.

Lengthy standing relationships with automobiles is such a uncommon factor lately and this truck is rattling close to excellent.
