So I would not go off about how they are not that rare Etc..as everything ages they get rarer,someone may want it,just like the Sonoma GT's so dont count him out that quickly!
That is correct...... I actually like the looks of the Cameo exterior a tad bit more than my Sonoma GT, but the GT interior is much nicer (especially the dash cluster).
The Chevrolet S-10 Cameo was made between 1989 and 1991 as a bid for the soon to come "Syclone Project". The Cameo was made in 2 versions,
the Cameo (with full wrap around ground effects) and the Cameo EL (front and rear ground effects only). The company which modified the factory vehicles was AFI (Auto Fab Inc.) in Louisiana. What made the Cameo line special from other stock trucks was: a sport suspension,15 x 7"ralley wheels,ground effects package including Cameo decals and fog lights, and a standard V-6. Most models also came with high back bucket seats and power package including digital dash. Although most of the "EL" and some "Cameo" models came through with basic equipment package stripped down trucks.
The 1989 Cameo is by far the most rare of the Cameo line. Only 37 were produced in 1989.
The bad part is that the "Cameo" was offered an "optional appearance package" instead of a seperate model so it technically is not as "collectable". The Sonoma GT's were actually a seperate model offered and the NADA book values are there which is especially good if your in an accident and repairs need to be done.
NOTE: Once you get that truck finished I would have it appraised and be sure to have all of the documentation you can i.e. receipts, and things like the ad on ebaY, etc.
Here is a cool website I found awhile back of a bad a$$ Cameo converted to V-8:
Here is another black Cameo that just needs a afternoon with a heat gun to remove those ugly ass graphics!!!
