Honestly, I'd love to have that truck! Gotta love the clssics. Drop a 350 and a new tranny in her, do a bit of body work, and ride in Old School Style!

just as the names implys.

Sure it can still smoke the tires... but its not likly to see a drag race... Thats why when I built up the engine in my 69 the last time, I only put in parts that would make roughly 320hp 300 torque...
Why would you ever build a truck to win a race? but some companys do... (ford/dodge.. lol) that new SST and SSR dont have any big power... 5.3 and 6.0... woo
even the 1990 454SS was choked, hardly any ponies/torque.... syclone, decent only because they where all wheel drive..

ANYHOW ! ! ! ! Im not a fan of that new styling and will still prefer a STS if Im going to get rich first and spend alot of money on a Caddy. Besides that isnt a C5 Vette like 50,000. No wonder I only see about one of these new "things" maybe once a week or maybe even a few weeks between sightings. Im on the road aprox 10 hours a day here in the Albany NY area and besides watching traffic thats what I do, check out all the cars and other fine scenery.

About the Chevy truck thingy. What your trying to say is/as in Elcamino/Ranchero. They were alright but not for me. If I want a 2 seater it needs to be a sports car. If I want a truck it better be able to do some work. Its OK but I do not like the rear quarters and retro sucks. The two styles just dont blend together and creat that not a line out of place look. To me instead every line just seems out of place. The front is kinda cute though but I dont like cute I like SEXY. The STS is SEXY The Aurora is SEXY. The new Bonnevilles are SEXY. A VW Bug is cute.

syclone decent???? when they were first made they did a performance comparo to a ferrari, guess which one won? the truck!

0-60 in like 4.5
1/4'* in the 13'*

can be sooooo much faster too. one good/bad thing about them is that because there turbo auto'*, hold the brake and the gas down, let the boost raise, take your foot of the brake and its like a freakin slingshot. too bad the transfer cases didn't like this to much


i guess a silverado ss is a sport truck then, alot of show but not alot of go.
i wouldn't care if that thing had a blown 6.0, still looks like a PT cruiser, new beetle and a s10 had a orgy. (the ssr)
