im wondering,are the wheel bases of the two the same? would there be any advantage to doing this? would i have to change anything on the s10 frame if the wheel base is the same(other then suspension parts to give the Vega a better ride hight)
the only reason i would consider this is because parts fro s10s are alot more common then H-body parts and the frame would be stronger.
and id also imagine modifying the s10 frame for a v8 would be easier
The seller apparently has no idea what he's talking about or else thought he could do this and gave up, which is why he's now trying to find a buyer who's equally clueless.
