M 1009 - Ex-Army
Now I have done it - I thought about it for nearly 5 years:|
In December 2003, I bought a Chevrolet Blazer M 1009 (US Army version of the Chevrolet K 5). A quite unusual car here in Germany. The size of that vehicle does not make too much sense for the narrow traffic here and because of this it must be a hobby.
It is a real hobby, that needs a lot of time. |
There is always something to work on an '85 Chevy - no work, no drive!!!
But on the other side, it makes real fun to drive along the highways for some hours on a sunny Sunday afternoon and feeling the power and the sound of that great V 8 engine.
Some technical data:|
V8 Diesel, 6174 ccm (381cui), 135 HP (99 kw)
Turbo Hydramatic (TH) 400, 3-gear Automatik
Highspeed approx. 140 km/h (85 mph)
Travelling speed 100 - 120 km/h (60 - 70 mph)
33 x 12,5 x 15 AllTerrain
1985 -1995 service in the US-Army
since 1995 in private owners here in Germany
In May 2004, I met with some more Chevy drivers in an "Off Road Park" in South Germany. In these two days, I was able to test the excellent off road qualities of these great cars.|
Here in that Off Road Park, we were some ex-army M 1009, M1008 and of course some K 5 - most of them with diesel engines. Regular fuel is too expensive here in Germany.
