Still hauling mine in the back if my 22 year old S10 shop truck. I bought it new in 95 and it's only got 116000. And since you can't buy a "small" pickup anymore I guess I'll keep driving it a while.
S10's are fun trucks and great for medium hauling. I just helped my uncle install the new Mickey Thompson tires on his 1997 S10 with 280k miles on the clock and still runs like a champ.
