Here's a few I've finished, and a few that need work.
Some are my commuters, some go out on occasion, and some haven't been out for a long time (like my 89, I really need to put that one back together!)

though i've had many pass through my hands, i can't contribute to this thread as they are all long gone as i've upgraded over and above the Blizzards. but the photos posted have inspired and maybe one day soon, i'll get one back into the stable.

Here's my '91. It's battle-scarred for sure, but the parts are all in excellent shape. Well, not counting the fork, it's just for show.

These ATAK hubs and Ringle skewers feel a little out of place to me, but they are shiny!

I have a couple sets of barends that could look good, but I'd need some grips I can cut down before I can put them on. Apart from that, I'm pretty happy with it.
