Well, a week from today and it'll be a year since i bought my first toy. a 1991 chevy s-10, 350 smallblock from a 74 camaro, turbo 350 trans, 10 bolt limited slip diff, B&M shift kit, edelbrock performer rpm intake and edelbrock 600cfm carb... thing was a blast. if it didn't help the truck go forward, it was gone. all that was left was an aftermarket tach, aftermartket oil pressure gauge, coolant temp gauge, headlights, and windshield wipers. didn't even have heat. it was a base model truck, bench seat, standard cab, 6 foot bed. heddman headers to flowmaster duper 40's, dumped before the rear axle. it was LOUD. took it and it's carbuerated greatness on a 160 mile highway trip, turning 2800 rpms to 12mpg the whole way. ran it out of gas too lol. there's still a thread about it on here somewhere.
the bad - it leaked oil all over dad's pretty cement floor. messed with the oil pan gasket, with the engine still in the truck. that was a fail. turned out the oil leak was coming from a broken bolt on the intake manifold. not having tools, i had to take the head to a machine shop to get the bolt extracted. not having time, and wanting to buy an 08 cobalt ss, i sold the truck for what i owed on it (half of what i bought it for). the same day, the cobalt got sold. it's in better hands now. the guy that bought it pulled the engine, put a new harmonic balancer and flexplate on it, fixing the timing issues and letting it rev freely to what he said was over 8k. i have a new toy now that's just as loud and spins tires just as easily, but i really miss that truck and would love to have it back.
what are some of the cars you guys have had over the years that you would love to have back?
