it began with this 1972 k5 blazer

My wife strolled into my office the other day carrying a large stack of old photos (you know, those things that pre-dated digital photos). She set them on my desk and cheerily said, “Here you go.” Where I ended up going was down Memory Lane.I was instantly riveted by one faded photo. It was a photo I took in December of 1971 (I only know that because the month and year were written on the back of the photo) of my uncle’s ’72 Chevy K5 Blazer. As I stared at that photo my old foggy brain started to build rpms, memory horsepower began to increase, and surprisingly, I began to remember a little about the day I snapped it with my old Brownie camera. It was cold out the day…

JERED.KORFHAGE@FOURWHEELER.COM(Photo: Rebecca Lessner)EAGLE FANI’m a big fan of Eagles, but I keep mine close to stock. I pretty much overhauled my ’82 SX/4 and also have an ’86 wagon that was featured in a video on YouTube on the AutoMoments channel. They’re great fun to drive and always turn heads. I don’t use them much in the salty Pennsylvania winters anymore for obvious reasons. I was born in 1988 so I sadly never saw any on the showroom floor. Thanks for the neat article (Firing Order, Apr. ’19).MATT STECKVIA EMAILPATHFINDER BUILDThought I would share my build with you. I am not the first to do this swap but here it is—a ’92 Nissan Pathfinder with a D21 Hardbody cab. I bought the Pathfinder in 2017 with a blown engine and…

EDITOR@FOURWHEELER.COM’19 Ram 1500 Classic WarlockIt’s TBT—throwback truck. The ’19 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock is a redo of the 1970s Warlock pickup. If the 1970s are too vintage for you, then learn from Ram’s own explanation of the OG Warlock: “In 1976, the first production Dodge Warlock was introduced following the public’s positive response to a pickup originally designed as an auto show concept vehicle. The Warlock was a factory-personalized pickup that could ‘play as hard as it works,’ according to the period literature, complete with bucket seats, ‘fancy wheels, fat tires,’ chrome-plated running boards, real oak sideboards, and special gold accent stripes inside and out. Production ran until 1979.” Knowing all that, now know that this Warlock gets its wings via a monochrome look, powdercoated bumpers, black grille with accompanying…

a series of fortunate events

jered.korfhage@fourwheeler.com“MY DAD WARNED ME that this truck would never be a full rockcrawler—boy was he wrong!” The truck was an ’84 Chevy K20 with a 6.2L Detroit Diesel V-8, and it had spent its time hauling cattle around a ranch and transporting toys to and from the local dunes. Ryan Maggy’s plans for the truck involved more play than work; he wheeled hard on its 3/4-ton axles and 4-inch Pro Comp lift. Modifications began with flipped shackles and custom-built bumpers—and ended with a blown engine and a title transfer. Ryan’s heavy foot and the turbocharger wreaked havoc on the stock 6.2L, so he parted ways with the Chevy and sold it to a friend.A series of fortunate events took place in that interim. First, Ryan’s friend replaced the blown diesel…
