If I was going to do that with an ol' S10, I'd hog out all the junk and drop in a really tall rearend, like 2.73 if I could find it, plus a five-speed with an overdrive. An SBC in that would have mountains of torque to call on, you could make it a really long-legged, easy highway cruiser. Perfect for long trips with the mill just ticking over.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
