Beat on the Street - S10 Baja

Unless it's a Brazilian market Diesel, S-10s are generally not worth mentioning on Beaterblog. But this 1989 Baja edition may, just may, be worth mentioning. As of posting this, I'm still not totally sure. Maybe it's the Taz livery, but I still kind of hate it.

It's clearly on its last legs, but these Baja edition trucks are a great reminder of late 80's pseudo-sport option packages. There is something strangely appealing in the 'Marty McFly's Toyota' wannabe drilled wheels, brushguards, and murdered-out trim.

If you must own an S-10, this would be the one. Throwing the 4.3 turbo from the Cyclone in and making a boosted trophy truck for the street would be a Beaterblog condoned use for one of these vehicles.
