My friends S/10 always seemed like a work in progress. It was one of those conversions that kept being problematic. A lot of gremlins in the motor/trans, then he parked it to to take a break. That was back in like 95, I think it is still parked there in his shop.
The project kinda of seems similar to the 70's mustang in the video. A lot of mods, a big motor, and a lot of passion by the owner to make something that is not mainstream.
I admire the passion and work to do something that is not an easy bolt on, and diversity in the car culture is cool. Sometimes the end product looks a little cartoonish to me is all.
