General Motors engineers made sure that the RS model feels different than the standard driving mode, because if you’re buying an RS model you should feel like you’re driving a Sport mode. It comes available in a 3.6-liter V-6, making 308 hp and 270 pound-feet of torque, combined with the nine-speed automatic. The standard model comes in a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Ecotec engine that makes 193 hp and 188 pound-feet of torque, combined with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Blazer comes available in both front- and all-wheel drive. 

Design:

Now it is more sports-car-like exterior and sleek, tech-savvy interior. The cabin features circular air vents, a sleek screen and several more upscale features which are all features in the Camaro. The design-focused SUV mixes style and adaptability with its strong frame and sliding rear seats. It has 4,500 lbs. max towing for weekend road trips.

The Blazer is the perfect vehicle for any of your adventures. Stop by Jeff Gordon Chevrolet today and take one for a test drive then fall and love and take it home

DIY Backyard Movie Theater
It may not be a drive-in-movie but it’s still a lot of fun for a nice summer night with friends and family, here is everything that you’ll need to make your own outdoor movie theater right in your backyard!
There are 4 key components that you will need when setting up your backyard theater;
Video Source: Some options for this would be your laptop, DVD player, Blu-Ray player, or gaming console.
Video Projector: What your projector will need:
  • Brightness – go for 2000 lumens or better
  • Resolution – look for a 720p or 1080p model HD is also a great thing to look for.
  • Sound- Don’t worry about if the projector has a built-in speaker, they do not help for outdoor settings.
Sound System: Think about something that you have that produced enough sound and can be plugged into your video source. Some ideas are:
  • Stereo amplifier
  • A good set of computer speakers
  • Take it old school with a boom box – as long as it has auxiliary outputs
  • Home Theater in a box
A Screen: Really any white material will work, but here are a few ideas to make your screen.
DIY Sheets:
  • What you will need:
  • Two white king sized flat/top sheets.
  • 40 feet of 1 1/2 inch SCH 40 PVC Pipe
  • (2) 1/4 inch x 3-inch eye bolts
  • (2) 90° PVC elbows
  • (3) 1 1/2 inch PVC  “T” pipes
  • (3) five-gallon buckets
  • Sand
  • Cord or Rope
How to make the screen:
  • Cut 2 pieces 100” X 56”
  • Turn right side out with the seams on the inside, ironing down the seams will help it lay flat
  • Make pockets for the pipes by sewing the seam around all four sides about 4” away from the edge
  • Fold and iron the raw edges from the final side that has not been closed.  Stitch the edges together to close the final side.
How to make the frame for the screen:
  • Lay your screen you just made flat on the ground. Take a 90° elbow and connect it to a ten-foot piece of 1 1/2 inch PVC pipe.  Slide the pipe through the top pocket of the screen.  Measure from the left to the right side of the screen and mark where you need to cut it.  Take the pipe out, cut the pipe, and slide the pipe back through the screen.  Place the second 90° elbow on the opposite end of the top pipe.
  • Place the “T” PVC connector into the bottom left-hand corner of the screen where it would belong.  Measure from the top 90° elbow connector to the bottom tee connector to determine the length of the side pipe.  Cut the pipe and slide into the side pocket of the screen and fit into the 90° elbow and then attach the “T” connector. Repeat for the right-hand side.
  • There should already be a hole in the screen for this, place the final tee connector in the center of the bottom pocket in the screen. Measure from the left tee to the center tee and cut to fit.  Slide it in and attach to both tees.  Repeat, by measuring from the center tee to the right tee, cutting and attaching.
  • In case of winds you will need to tie down your screen so attach one eye bolt to each side pipe.
  • Cut three 1 1/2 inch PVC pipes in lengths of 41 inches each.  These will be the legs of the screen.
  • Stand the legs in the center of the 5-gallon buckets. Fill the buckets with sand to hold the legs in place.
  • Attach the “legs” to the 3 tee connectors on the bottom of the screen.
Now you have your screen, time to go pick out your movie and invite your friends over, don’t forget the popcorn!
If you do not have the time or simply do not want to build the screen there are other options, you could always do a projector screen although they are typically not that large, there are inflatable screens, as well as outdoor movie screens that you can buy. Another simple option if you have the space for it and location is to project the movie on the side of your house, garage door, tall fence. There are endless options for a movie screen, it’s all just a matter of how creative you want to get. Most importantly is to have fun, enjoy the movie, and eat popcorn!
