Why, those Dastardly Bankers! They should all be Tarred and Feathered, then run out of town on a Rail for forcing that poor widder-woman into signing such a terrible contract............

Do you think they beat her with hoses, or axe-handles?

Unhand that Woman, Dan Backslide!

They were pushing them pretty hard a few years back. Maybe not the Spanish Inqisition but definate pressure to sign up for one. Still ultimately a person is responsible for their decisions and the consequences. That goes for banks too, if they shoveled these 120% equity intrest only loans off on people who could barely afford it, they should take the inevitable hit when they default. F*ck bailing them out with MY tax dollars I have a "Regime Change" to pay for....

Good call, was it 72 the last year to where the entire top comes off? Memory is starting to fade now...

You could take the top off of my '85. If you wanted to. People say it never quite goes back on properly. I wouldn't know. Since it rains just about every day in the mountains in the Utah summer I'd just leave the top on.

I think it was up to '75 the top came off. '70 is the first year they put disc brakes on the front of the Blazers (I think).. I had a '70 GMC with drum brakes that wasn't overly confidance inspiring so it's a major consideration
