    Too pretty to drive. The S10 frame is a bit odd yes.

    Sure caught my eye, as I have a 54 sapphire blue Mark 1. Definitely as restomod as it has a GM V6 with 200hp compared to my 85hp and notice the grill with the wedge shape...just a little too mod for me.

    I had a Mk 3 once - needing full restoration - but very straight and unrusted, ivory/red. I was debating doing it stock or doing something like this. I ended up selling it to some guy from Alaska. I have no idea whatever happened to it, and don't have any contact information for him.

    I decided I was more into sports cars than what I felt this car was. These were more "stately" to me. Still, they definitely have great class. Kind of like a Jaguar XK120/140, with an English Rolls attitude grille. This GMV6 car of course changed the grille a little towards the Bentley direction.

    I do think though that this is an amazing job for someone who would want one of these cars. All the lines and quality, with drivetrain that works super well. And I like that the pipes are merged for less aggressive V8 sound, which would be a bit incongruous for the car (In my own opinion).
