    Selling the Camaro

    The motor recently blew and I have an ls6 waiting to be put in but i want something more. So I just purchased a S10 and selling the Camaro to a buddy of mine. It has 125XXX on the motor and 212XXX on the body and it is a 1996 body style and he just got new paint on it. I will be putting the ls6 with a t56 transmission in the truck and hopefully I can turn it into a monster. If you guys have any suggestions they will be appriciated.

    Well I hope you won't regret your decision on getting rid of the Camaro. Just think, the blown motor could be a blessing in disquise!! You can build a MONSTER engine!!!

    Best of luck to you on whatever you decide to do. That S10 sounds like a fun project. Wish I could be more help to ya.

    I would definitely NOT sell the SS. Put the ls6 in it, duhhh. A v8 s10 is cool, but not as cool as a built SS.

    Well, I for one like different stuff, and the truck would make a nice sleeper, and a parts hauler at the same time. Nothing wrong in my book with a swap like that.
    Still stuck with that damn 7.5 inch 10 bolt though

    On the bright side, Strange does cast 12 bolt housings to fit S-10's

    sure, theres nothing wrong with a v8 in a s-10....but i wouldnt get rid of a clean ass ss camaro when all he has to do is drop is engine he already has into it.

    It's what ever floats your boat. Wouldn't matter to me either way.

    I'm more of a "walk softly and carry a big stick" kind of person, and the SS camaro just doesn't fit that very well.

    I have 2 SS camaro's, so I understand where you are coming from. But I'd sell one in a heart beat for something cool like that.

    I know what you mean. Seems I miss anything that I sell, probably why I've become such a pack rat

    I knew a guy who put in an LS1 into a ZR2 S10.... completely stock looking on the outside, but under the hood lied a monster!

    V8 swaps in S-10's used to be pretty popular years ago. I haven't seen many in a long time.

    Before S-10's were invented we used to stick V-8's in the Chevy Luv trucks,,,,anyone here old enough to remember those??
    Late 70's early 80's I don't think there was another chevy luv left around that didn't have a V8 in it back then.

    Yeah v8 s10's are cool, and somewhat unique... there are a few running around here... but come on, a SS with a ls6
