1996 Chevrolet S-10 Mark III V6 from North America
Beautiful driving truck
Replaced water pump.
Regular oil changes.
Replaced air filter and fuel filter.
Replaced spark plugs.
This truck is absolutely the best ever. I bought in 1997, new from a dealer. Only a very few of these were made, especially with the Mark III conversion. A '90s classic. Only has 84,500 miles.
I have kept it in garage when not in use. The original paint job is still very shiny and clean when detailed. All power inside with leather and wood trim. Beautiful. Gets head turns everywhere I go and people asking if I would sell. Looks as if it will outlive me as I am 72 now.
Drives like a dream. More power than I could ever want. Just step on gas and go. Starts with one key turn.
A/C, AM/FM, cassette, overhead lighting system, rear sliding window, fold down center console. Just beautiful. Love it.
Was offered $8500 - I turned it down. Why take that to begin payments again. No way Jose! Might take $10,000 - at least that would give me something to buy a new car. But sure would hate to lose this one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You turned down $8500, but you would take $10,000?
Should have taken the $8500, which would buy at least 3 or 4 really nice 90s S-10 pickups.

Any offer that comes in about about $1500 for a small truck which is almost 20 years old, should be taken on the spot and run with. Whoever offered $8500 either had no idea which vehicle he was offering that money for, or had the IQ of a brick.

I also have a 1996 S10 Mark 3. It's very unique and I've never seen a similar truck. It's a 4 cylinder 5 speed, but with plain interior and no power options.
