Old school K-5 Chevrolet Blazer ‘Retro Blazer”
If you’ve been paying attention to the design themes that you’ll find just about any automaker taking part in, you might have taken notice that one underlying storyline that’s defined throughout all of them is that of nostalgia.
Now, we aren’t saying that they’re making the exact same replicas of cars and trucks that you’ve seen years ago but sometimes, certain design cues are picked, modified, and applied to newer vehicles. This way, people can get that nostalgic feeling along with a little bit of something new.
This time, we take the time to check out a Chevrolet Silverado that has been modified entirely for the purpose of nostalgia as it’s been taken from its original self to something else entirely called the “Retro Blazer.” The basic idea here is that the color scheme, wheel design, and other stylistic cues have been borrowed from old-school k5 Blazerand applied to the 2013 version of Chevy’s flagship pickup in the Silverado. The opinion might be a little bit polar here from person to person as some will love it and some will probably hate it but it’s certainly designed to make you stop to look twice to see what it’s all about.
If you check out the video below, you’ll get an inside scoop on this ‘K5 Blazer” that takes a thought or two from its older brother, putting them down on a canvas that’s new but also pretty familiar if you’ve ever checked out the older Blazer that it borrows the design from. We have to admit that this ode to the old-school K5 Blazer is one that took quite some time to perfect and It looks to us like whoever was behind this design really did a good job of making sure that it caught the essence of Classic.
