i have an 89 s-10 blazer 4x4 with almost 180,000 miles on it.
the engine has been rebuilt around 120k. i have to get a more fuel efficent car to drive 40 miles to school everyday. now the problem is with so many miles on the truck i will get next to nothing trade in and on a private sale. what i am thinking of doing is completly restoring from the ground up.
i wanna convert to a 383 stroker. that will obviously cost a bit but if i do all the body work myself ( shaved door handels, shaved rear latch, and other good stuff) i think it wont come out to too much $ or at least in my budget range :D do you think this project will be worth it.

What do you all think advice is needed
