I don't know what most people think of the S-10 but I wouldn't trade mine for anything. I love this truck, don't get me wrong they do have some minor problems like, lack of room, the seats are a bit uncomfortable, and it's not to smooth of a ride either but the looks are incredible. The 4.3 vortec that came in mine can hold its own against any stock v8 I have encountered but a Chevy 350 swap is amazing in this small truck.
The small body, the smooth curves, and 4.3 vortec engine.
It could use a bit more room behind the seats in the reg cab and the 700R4 trans needs to be replaced with a turbo 350 or 400 trans.
