If you’re a huge fan of the Fallout video game series, this is the Chevy Astro for you. If not, well, it’s just an interesting midi-van. Continue reading Fallout Fans, Here’s Your Chevy Astro Evacuation Vehicle!
Anyone who knows 80s cars knows Chevy never made a convertible S10 Blazer, so this is a custom job, but it does look like it was meant to be. The V8 swap solves the extreme slowness problem these had, but we worry that the lack of a proper top means you’re screwed if you take more than one friend with you and it starts to rain.
