Default 1978 Blazer "Big Rhonda" Tribal Flames Build

400ci Chevy
RV cam
Headers
Aluminum intake

Don't have starts pictures, but the only diff from the first pic is I added a 4" springs all around and replaced both front fenders whom were cancer ridden. The rest of the truck was surprisingly rust free.
