Yeah, the body kit is a semi-official one, so unless he's Rice Hammered it in with drywall screws, it possible. Paint can be stripped off and the SS can be re-brushed. The cars are normally painted to cover a bondo filled dent, but there's a number of DMC guys who could hammer that out and do a rebrush. It'd cost a lot, though, more than it would be to buy a normal D - I'll guess that this fool is wanting, what, $10k for it? It's probably not actually worth more than $5k - if I lived in the states I'd offer him that in cash and make the car a decent project. It'll need new plastics, the door alignment appears hosed (which could be any number of things - a fixable factory defect, maybe neglect), and the interior may be even worse than the exterior... but that car can still be saved.

Spare batteries are pretty key.

So, I'm a poor college student in Michigan looking to get a summer job as a wilderness firefighter out west- possibly Washington, New Mexico, or Alaska. I will have to drive across the country in a couple of days, with all my clothes & poo poo, and probably will sleep in my car.

So I'm wondering what the expert opinions are on the following Chevy s10 pickup:
http://detroit.craigslist.org/cto/1029889614.html

"Got a 1991 Chevy S-10 standard cab, 4.3l with no leaks,has a 5-Speed that shifts real good and has a topper. Has a little over 133,000 miles with a fresh oil change. Real good truck that starts up everytime. 1195$ OBO no reasonable offer refused."

Make sure you start it when it's cold and drive it around till it's fully warmed up. If no issues are apparent and brakes, tires, clutch, and body are fine, it might be a good deal even at asking price. Haggle still. Good luck.

Buddy of mine's dad has a '91 S10 - 4.3, stick shift - that he bought in 1992. He was telling me a few days ago that he hadn't ever put a single dime into that truck other than oil changes, and it's never let him down, left him stranded, or failed to start. I'd say jump on this deal - this is a very reliable truck.

I drive a '93 S-10 4.3 TBI that I bought from a guy at work who "low ridered" it. Thankfully a pry bar and a hammer helped remove the low riderness. After changing the radiator and hoses and doing some routine maintenance it has been a fantastic truck considering I throw about 60 miles a day on it every day over the past year. The only think you need to take a hard look at is the fuel pump; I live in Minnesota and when we had our first frost it died and upon further inspection it is not uncommon for these things to have their stock fuel pumps take a dump. But in summary it's been a very tough truck that always starts even in extreme cold and I have been impressed with it.
