I say the s10 with a v8 swap. I'm building a v8 bettle using a s10 chassis that I modified and am thowing a 350 up front and the bug body on the chassis. See my site at ZB Hover Creations Main page- ZBHC Inc, ZBHC personal pages, Wood working, and VW Beetle pages

The V8 swap into the s10 would have been pretty easy to do, then you can say that you built the truck and not "I bought this camaro that already had a v8 in it".................

Or you could go all out like me and throw a cobalt body on the s10 chassis instead of the bug J/K

Buy a foxbody outright for the cheap, and swap the 2011 5.0 in it... available as a crate motor for $7K. ;)
