Wow nice truck nick! Just really nice. It also has the zq8 suspension package and wheels. Wish I could find a clean zq8 like that. Did ya pay a pretty penny for it? lol

Well I didn't get off that easy on the price even though a friend ownes the dealership. More that $4000 but less than $8000 is all I'll say.

Your truck is looking Great Nick..

Do you have a straight on side pic?

Not on me, but I'll get you one tommorow.

Future plans are to get... 1 side emblem to replace the stolen one...

Nick

Ya know fishing line and alcohol to remove all the others is cheaper right? :lol: Just kidding. Good looking almost 100% original truck....and I only say almost just because the bug guard, vent shades, and the bed cover aren't factory. Great Find!

Nope there Dealer, been there since the truck was delivered 05/06/01 to Ontario Motor Sales.

Found the original bill of sale for it today in the glove box with every piece of paper I think ever related to the truck, even gas receits.

got a car fax from my buddy the dealer the day I told him that the truck would find it's way home with me, I'm the third owner, only one fender bender 12/14/01 and it was only a cracked front bumper, which was replaced at Ontario Motor sales. The first two owners were father and son.

Hi all, here is a pic of an '80s S-10 that I built similar to the one that was in Terminator 2.

Also a pic of my 1:1 '91 S-10 that is another model project.

Nice build. I just wish that AMT would have released the real Xtreme in 98 up trim instead of the Xtreme prototype, called The Hugger. BTW, I also wander why the box never mentioned it was a prototype. Here is what I am talking about. http://www.texassser...otype-Trucks...

Thanks for the link Ken, I had been searchin for pics of the 4 door dually FOREVER.

Yeah, I didn't know they even did a dually until I saw that. I was kind of diggin' on the 4 door dually because of the regular length bed. I always thought to myself, "Now why in the world would they release a 4wd only crew cab and put such a stubby, useless bed on it?" It's obvious that, if they didn't make a 2wd, it was for work purposes. So, why would they build a truck for four-five workers and leave no room for tools and materials? Anyway, I'm thinking of building a model of either the crew cab or regular cab dually now. I think I can do it as long as I don't have to scratch tiny parts.

They built the first dually in 97 (the blue crew cab). I first seen pics of it in a Sport Truck issue in 97. It WAS going to be a regular production truck for the Brazilian market but never made it that far. It sat at the Warren, MI plant for 2 years (while they built a few more prototypes). They were all finally auctioned off in late 2008. Whoever has those trucks definatly has a beast. I prayed for them to go into regular production, but there wasn't much of a demand for them.

I have always wanted to build the crew cab dually, which is why I've been searching for pics (for close to 10 yrs). I had that magazine issue put up so I could use it for reference when the time came, but over the years it vanished.

I probably saw it too somewhere and don't remember. I remember seeing so many slightly modified S10s with everything colormatched, in the 90's, I couldn't keep the GM builds straight from the consumer builds. :lol:

I built a couple of GMC's back in the '90's.

1996 GMC Jimmy 2WD, lowered, converted from a S10 Blazer 4x4 with the front half of a GMC Sonoma 2WD chassis spliced in. Dont worry, the 4WD chassis parts and transfer case were spliced into the PU Truck's chassis, and is awaiting to be built as a lifted truck. Yes, the wheels date it (Testors Chevzoom), but I wouldn't change a thing. I built it back in 1996.

2005_01140009.jpg

1994 GMC Sonoma in my favorite color combination back in the day. I also have a Chevrolet S10SS in the same color combination in a box, somewhere in my collection to go with it. I started this in 1995, and finished it in 2009, due to not being satisfied with the paint, but I had to finish it, as I needed a slump-buster at the time, and it was 75% done for all those years.
