V-8 S-10s... Should I do another?

I had a really sweet S-10 I bought for myself for my 25th birthday. (That was 21 years ago) It was an '87 (only 4 years old at the time) It was black with four shades of gray stripes and a red interior. It was a basic 4 cylinder 5 speed. It ran great and strong for a four. That didn't last. The throw-out bearing blew apart and took out the transmission, too. It was going to cost me over $900 to fix it with used parts. But I had the 350 and trans I used in my '80 Monza sitting there in my garage. So I went about installing it in my S-10! I was the 4th V-8 S-10 in Findlay, Ohio! I kept that truck until 2001 when I got my Trans Am done. I pulled that 350 out (to use in my Nova) and sold the truck. Fast forward 5 years and I buy another black S-10. This one is a '94 LS with a customized interior. I drove it for a couple years until the transmission went out. Sound familiar? Now I could just get another 4L60E and put it in there and let my step-daughter drive it when she get her license. Or I could put another 350/350 combo in and have some fun of my own again.

Just thinkin'!
