Overall:

The truck that I selected is the perfect match for what I had in mind. My neighbor has this exact same truck and I said to myself I want that truck. I had been shopping around for years, but couldnt find the right one.

Great First Car — 1987 chevy s10 2.8 v6, 5 speed long box single cab 2wd durango package (57k miles) This is my first car and has been a great car being only repairs r replacing the original plugs and wires after 25 years and the pilot bearing went out in the clutch. Gets around 19-20 mpg in the city (2.8, 5 speed) and have yet to test it out on the highway on long distances. Wish it had more power but has more then enough to make it a great truck and i would take fuel economy over power any day and these trucks where designed to haul stuff in the box, not tow. This little truck has a 1500lb payload limit which is outstanding for its size, just wish the bx was wider and deeper, i dont think its even wide enough to fit a 4 wheeler in it although i could be wrong. Over all its a great little truck and i would recommend it to anyone, and for being 25 years old it has yet to show any signs of leaking oil at all or any other fluids.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great little reliable gas saver

Cons: gutless, narrow and shallow bed.

My Favorite Truck — This little truck was the best little truck I have ever owned. It may have been a rust bucket but it ran like a dream. I was given the truck for free and only had to replace the clutch in it. I then put a class 3 hitch on it and towed a 6x9 u-haul trailer fully loaded from upstate NY down to VA had absolutely no problems the whole trip. Oh not to mention the bed of the truck was fully loaded also. The only reason I got rid of the truck was because there was no way it would pass inspection in the state of VA.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I miss my little S-10

Cons: N/A

Pros: Good built truck

Cons: wrecked

1987 S10 Project — This truck has pretty weak performance, but what can you expect from an 87. It needs some suspension work for tighter cornering and a more aggressive stance. Power wise it needs a lot more power definitely a v8 in the future if I end up keeping it. This is great fun in winter driving drifting all over with just a little weight in the box. The 2.8 v6 has almost 250 000 km's on it and it is still running strong, but does not get very good mileage which is a disappointment because of the lack of performance too.

Pros: Learned lots doing engine swap.

Cons: No v8 yet...

Strong But Braindead? — This truck runs, occasionally. That's the best thing I can say about it. The manual 4-speed transmission can pull a full size truck I will give it that. The problem however lies within the engine and its crappy throttle body. I would gladly take a MPI, EFI, or even a carb. engine over this one any day.

Pros: Strong Transmission

Cons: Throttle body that just doesn't want  to power the car.

I got this truck for a daily driver and for the snow. It drives great and handles very good in the snow. Only things bad are the size of the truck bed and it eats through gas with its V6 engine. Read More
