89 S-10 — Great truck, lil 4cyl. Ran like a top. Easy to work on. Hauled its weight worth of crap daily. Got it cheap from a mobile oil changing service and drove it until the wheels fell off. Can't ask for more.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: chevy

Cons: ???

I Wuld Recomend This Truck To Anyone — this is actually the prototype for the typhoon, the extreme and the syclone. in 1989 there were only 37 produced and today there are only 7 registered. it came stock with a 262 or a 4.3L but i replaced it with a 350 aluminum. not much room under the hood with the supercharger so i had to get a new hood so i thought might as well be a cowell hood. so i put i cowell 6 inch on it. i fel pretty lucky to be able to own one of these amazing little trucks. drives more like a go kkart than a truck. it has a sprot tuned suspension which came on it stock. havent rly messed with anything besides the new engine and the drivetrain and tranny. other than the body that is of course. did all the work myself so if it looks good dont be afraid to tell me. its a huge ego boost

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: everything. i love it.

Cons: really hard to find 3x9 for the rear sise speakers.

Age Is Only A Number — shes has a 4.3 liter rebuilt engine with about 40,000 miles on it. last october she was given a new paintjob and all engine repairs were made. two main problems are gas mileage and the low idle it holds causing it to sometimes shut off when idling too long. otherwise a fantastic vehicle!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: the ppaint job, its electic blue and it produces a vvery hearty sound

Cons: gas mileage and the low idle

S-10 — I drove it nearly 200,000 miles. It has been across the US 5 times. It was a very fun vehicle and extremely practical while attending school 300 miles from home. It was good transportation and great at hauling and moving my things and everyone else's!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: ran forever, and still does!

Cons: rusting slowly, build quality in 89 not that great.

Wonderful Little Truck — This truck is what i wanted. Small but packs a hard punch. It has been trough many tough times and is still kickin. It gets semi good gas mileage and it has a few minor issues to be fixed but over all it ias a fun truck to drive. I have put time into this truck and it all worked out.

Pros: Lots of power, good speakers, fun to drive

Cons: A little rust but not much, Brakes could be better.

Awesome Truck — When I bought this truck back 5 years ago, it was a work truck...and it LOOKED like one! The paint was faded, seats were torn, rims were standard s-10 ugly rims, lights were fogged up, and the underneath was completely covered in GA red clay dirt. Now, I have replaced the rims with a set of chrome IROC Rims, new tires, new electric blue paint, body kit, clear tailights, bumper/side, and xenon blue headlights and a custom grill. I put in a rebuilt 4.3L Engine about a couple of years ago. Everything inside the hood has been replaced except for the transmission. I replaced the bench seats with some bucket seats, replaced some of the dash, and put in some new wiring for the truck. All-in-all it is a kick ass truck!

Pros: Turned a "work truck" into a classy, elegant truck...while still able to haul some good loads!

Cons: NONE, its my truck. My Truck has NOTHING WRONG WITH IT!!

Crazy — Although I didn't own it for very long, The baja was a killer lil truck. Very powerful and light. Although I bought it, replaced the fuel pump, and sold it in 3 days, So I can't say much about it

Pros: Looks Sharp and turns heads like crazy. The light bar is a nice touch

Cons: Alot of power in too light of a truck.

Great Overall Truck By Cakana

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
