That's a clean ol' Blazer! I've had 2 cars stolen from me in the past. It sucks. You feel violated ... even when you get it back!

I'll forward the photo and spread the word to my cousins in Long Beach and Cerritos.,.,They're always out on the streets!

i'm guessing it had a factory tilt column,right? they are particularly vulnerable for theft and VERY easily defeated.any 12 year old could be taught to steal one in under a minute.unfotunately this column was in everything from blazers,camaros,full size pickups,caddy's in this era..even jeep cherokees and yj's parts interchanged.:mad:
we've fixed hundreds over the years at the bodyshop.the manufacturers never worked too hard to improve the situation,because every time a car or truck was stolen,they sold more parts:yes::mad:
hopefully it turns up soon with minimal damage.it looks super clean.

Why am I not surprised that she has the s-10 based blazer? Sorry to hear for your loss.

I drove my 71 Nova (before it ended up on its roof) every day to CSULB for 3 years, and that thing got attention. Noisy and somewhat nice looking. I drove my 67 ChevyII for 3 years as well. Never had a problem. Guess I was a lucky one. Was she in one of the parking structures or the lot? Either way it's lame that people do that sort of thing.

Good news

They found my daughters car in Compton:eek: on Thursday. They broke the column and pushed that little rod down and off the Thieving *******s went:mad: So I'm off to Sears on Sunday to use "The Official SoCal Nova's Fleet Discount" #5626305959 To buy 4 tires and a battery:mad:
Anybody know how to fix the column ??

That's good. At least she got it back. Anymore damage than the column?
Where in Long Beach or Lakewood? I'm off the 91 and Downey Rd.

ME TOO!! Lakewood blvd. and Hedda look for the Pirate Flag and my S-10 P/U that's me:yes: If the gates open stop on by and say "HI" :yes:
This is where its funny....It's a 1989 blazer with 89 rallies. Well they put the same wheels back on it but with some "May Pops" back on it:yes::eek: and a junk battery and parked it in a parking lot. It was only gone for a week.

IMO you are probably better off getting another column from a wrecking yard and getting it rekeyed. I'm glad you got it back though with no more missing or damaged than that.
