Update: Sorensens Take Restored Blazer on Northern Utah Summer Trip

By on October 28, 2013

It has been 8 months since Staff Sgt. Ben Sorensen received a surprise vehicle makeover from his wife Brittany Sorensen, who contacted asking for help. The 1987 Chevy Blazer, which Ben nicknamed “The Blaze”, was in extremely rough shape, and received a complete overhaul from, with the help of Dave’s Complete Auto Service in Layton. The makeover was completed just in time for Brittany to surprise Ben as he returned home from his deployment in Afghanistan last March.

This Veterans Day, took the opportunity to check in with the Sorensens, and it turns out they have been busy! The couple has been enjoying the outdoors and took the Blaze on a summer trip to the Uinta Mountains in Northern Utah, where they enjoyed camping, fishing, and some rugged trailheads. The two have also blown off steam doing some 4-wheeling in Cedar City. Ben has been enjoying working on the Blaze in his spare time, taking care of routine maintenance, as well as installing parts that make it better suited for their outdoor lifestyle.

Thank you Ben and Brittany for keeping us updated!
