This flamed-out '92 Chevy S-10 is the handiwork of Jonathan Bowles of Eastern Shore, Virginia. Jonathan has installed an Airlift Easy Street airbag kit and laid it out on 18x7-1/2-inch Pacer Vertigo wheels. His friend, Ben, shaved the door handles, the roof seams and installed the roll pan. His other buddy, Matt, then stepped in and sprayed the DuPont Torch Red and Silver paints, giving this truck a red-hot appeal. Further enhancing the cool factor of this truck are billet grilles, Euro taillights, clear corners, and a flush-mount tonneau cover. Jonathan also has a lot going on under the hood. To boost the power, he's installed a nitrous-oxide system, a throttle-body injection spacer, an MSD ignition system, headers. and a dual-exhaust system. Inside the cab, Jonathan has a full complement of audio equipment, including an Alpine head unit, Lanzar components, MTX amplifiers, and a pair of 15-inch MTX subs. Jonathan hasn't wasted all of this audio power, either, since he's already entered an MECA Audio competition and placed Third. Way to go, Jonathan.
What A Character!
Comin' straight out da' bay area of Fairfield, California, is Matt Moraida's S-10. FBI supplied him with the 2500 and 2600 'bags that were installed in the front and the rear suspension. The rear has received a C-notch in the framerails and a 4-inch block/monoleaf setup. The air system is plumbed with 1/2-inch lines and 3/8-inch solenoid valves, all controlled by a custom-built switch box. Reserve air is provided by a pair of Thomas 317 compressors and is held in a 7-gallon storage tank. The body has had the tailgate handle shaved and a roll pan was molded into the back end with an angled license-plate box from FBI. Euro taillights, clear front corner lenses, and a chrome shorty antenna round out the exterior mods. The interior is stock, save for red neon under the dash and a bumpin' system made up of a 12-inch MTX sub and a 350-watt amplifier. Matt also brightened up his engine compartment with color-matching wire loom and installed a K&N cold-air intake system and a Magnaflow exhaust. Matt has some hefty plans, which include draggin' off his current roll pan and installing a full tailgate skin. Now that's what I'm sayin'.
It looks like Mike Taylor wasted no time in personalizing his '01 S-10 Xtreme. Mike says he loves to cruise and show his mini and that he's updated it with airbrushed tribal flames and green pinstripes by Keith Knecht. He also slapped on a set of 17x8-inch KMC Venom rims and surrounded his new roundies with BFGoodrich Comp T/A tires. The tires are P245/45ZR17s and are perfect for hugging the corners all around his home town of Toledo. Giving the front end of Mike's mini a fresh look is a Keystone Steele cowl-induction hood and Street Scene mirrors. The back end of his truck is tricked out with a Leer hard tonneau cover with a wing and APC taillights. Under the tonneau cover lies a custom bed-carpet kit with a custom Bow Tie. Under the hood, Mike has powered up his motor with a K&N FIPK for more airflow, and a Hypertech Power Programmer III makes the most of his engine. A new after-cat exhaust system with Bow Tie exhaust tips looks cool and produces a sweet exhaust note.
