s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

Well last night i found an s10 cameo..... In my dreams. Just a quick question. Who here has/does owned a Cameo? I've never even seen one and just found out about them recently. It would be nice to make one but from what i've read I'd have the same chance of finding s syclone in my driveway tomorrow. I did find some body stickers/emblems yesterday on eBay and its gone already! Any other cladding that looks similar? Post up your rare S series trucks or info on about rare s trucks such as gypsy's, cameo's, the diesel s10 etc.

What is so cool about a cameo besides rarity, sideskirts, and stickers?

Re: s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

I've got a bunch of cameo parts from different trucks, but have the full kit now. It was one of the very few body kits I like, so I decided to spend the last year attempting to piece it together.

Front bumper cover and rear rollpan on some models. Pretty much the only difference.

Re: s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

^ : ), if i had known bout the cameo when i started the acc i would have added "i want a syclone or cameo" lol. Thats how rare they are, barely anybody knows about syclones as it is. I think like 1275 or sometin was made, deduct the accidents etc and i wonder how many Mint or mildy unaltered Cameo's are left. Someday i hope to have a garage filled with all of the S series models.

Re: s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

Even though I own a syclone, SGT, and a typhoon , I would love to find a clean "original" cameo. I have always liked them even though they are not much for the "power" aspect but they are rare and very cool. I have to agree with phantom mia on the SGT's being the rarest, only 806 ever built and only in "92". May-be someday I'll find a nice "91" cameo.

Re: s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

^....... jesus christ man... thats all i can say. I am truly jelous of your collection. That is my dream i will pursue once i'm out of college lol. Cameo's are hard to find, but i found one the other day on ebay for 1750 but it had some decent rust damage but it was fixable. Found out another rare s series, and that is the blazer woody. I think i may have seen one once.

It's close but very different.

Start w/ authentications:



Rear roll pan and tag plate:



4.3 TBI (which will be changed, info later):


Interior (Buckets, manual trans, digital dash):



15" stock rallye wheels in black/ silver (w/ big sister peeking around the corner):


You may have noticed she's been de-badged (original owner did that), so I've found a set of OE Avery decals that will be scanned and "modified" later:


Some planned alterations include:
1. Rear axle replaced with 2000+ 8.5" rear disc
2. Manual to power windows/ locks/ mirrors
3. Engine rebuild w/ forged internals and other goodies (see #4)
4. Whipple twin-screw supercharger and rear badge repleacement

The paint is original, although one part on the driver's side on the bed and near the cab was touched up. No idea why, it was not wrecked and the original owner had a plastic bedliner in that he didn't remove before painting it. Still have no idea why he pulled the decals off.

Other things are still wrong with it, some that I have addressed already. Bad shocks, American Racing wheels, dropped too far down (which ruined the front fascia and bent quarter panels/ already have a pre-painted replacement for the fascia), pulled the bedliner and bug guard, cracked rubber around doors and windows, Wiper motor was dead, and smaller junk. It's the next project after the Syclone gets back, so it gets the job of DD.

Not exactly true. The '89 GMC S15 Californian S/T. Reportedly only 50 built, looks like the '89 Cameo, same fascia and very different graphics on the side. http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f16/gm...yclone-415926/

To split hairs...the '91 is the only Cameo to have round driving lights and there are only 370. Even if you count the EL's (519), the count only rises to 889.

Re: s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

Nice, They must not have sold many on this side of the country(East coast), I have never seen one. If I had, I would have just thought it to be a cameo with a gmc grill. If there was only 50 made I wonder how many are left and still stock? Still like the SGT more.

Re: s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

@cavscout- sick cameo dude with super clean interior. I love your s10 collection and admire your s10 knowledge; welcome back to the forum.

@phantom mia- Nice sonoma GT but for rarities like the syclone or sonoma gt i think they should be left as stock as possible; syclones for sure. They don't need bigger engines to be fast or heavy modification.

On a side note as anybody ever driven a 454 SS silverado?

Not gonna argue with your choice, I like S10's, 15's, Sonoma's. Special/ Limited editions even better. It's why I own these three and am looking to add one more. 1998-03 GMC Sonoma Xpress by SLP, preferably step-side but that can be "fixed".




I've heard numbers as low as 200, placing it on the "Want List" for me. There was an S10 version called Seeker.

I am getting some decals re-made. I created the art from an original set I have for my Cameo. Not sure if you'd still be interested in buying a set but message me and let me know.

Re: s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

All very nice trucks. I didnt know about the Seeker either; I have a 97 S10 and an 88 S15. id love to find a body kit for my S15 like the Sy/Gt body molding. Ive seen all of them in person a few times over the years except a GT. Seen a few Cameos and someone in my old pizza delivery area had a Sy and a Ty in the driveway all the time when it was nice out.

Re: s10 Cameo, Your rare truck

My dad is currently doing a mild restoration on a 1990 S-10 Cameo, Apple Red started out in not so bad shape basically all it needs is paint the motor and tranny less than 85k original miles. I'm curious if anyone knows where we can get replacement Cameo decals the two door stickers had to be removed for paint and the tailgate sticker is not so imortant because we do not have a tailgate. I've called all the junk yards in within several hundred miles of me looking for a tailgate and the body kit piece that covers the front bumper is also missing but not one junk yard has any Cameo's, any leads would be appreciated.
