Follow the Explorers

My Car in the USA

People always ask me, which car I am driving on all my travels and how does this car looks like. That’s why I have added a couple of pictures on my web page. In 2000 I bought a stock S10 Blazer. In 2005 I added All Terrain Tires and since 2007 my S10 is eventually grown up. Read more in my 88 Chevy S10 BDS Lift Kit Installation. In 2010 I put in the V8 conversion radiator and replace the stock mechanic fan by an electrical one to get rid of the overheating problems.

Important Update:The trail in 2016 is the last trail for now. Unfortunately my mechanic in Warrendale, Pennsylvania, has so tremendously screwed up my car that it is almost impossible to get the truck back on the road with a reasonable amount of money. I am also lacking time and money to build up a new Explorers Truck in the US. It took many years to modify this truck in a way that it is suitable for my extraordinary traveling. A new truck has to be modified with the same amount of time over many years and testing, which is impossible for me to do. But if I should find any solution to be back on the trails I will let you know! You should never give up hope! Let’s hope this project does not come to an end because of one bad mechanic!
