some nice cars there. the rampage seems a little of of place though. they will always be funny to me because i had a buddy hit me with one in high school, which was funny because he had a old fury III before that and never hit anything. then he gets this rampage and aside from hitting me he wrecked it a couple times. it didnt last very long.

That 91 Syclone is a collectors item these days. Especially if you have the turbo version.

@jwfirebird - The Rampage was the only truck that was sanctioned by SCCA to race in their events. It was a fun little truck, quick and handled great for it'* day. But, you are right, not the greatest quality. Stuff began failing pretty quickly. When the steering rack gave up I traded it off.

@Mike1995 - All Syclone'* have turbocharged 4.3 liter V6 engines. If it doesn't have the turbo, it isn't a Syclone. I bought mine new, but it actually hasn't been a very fun truck because I don't want to put miles on it, and only one person can ride along with me, so I rarely drive it. I like to drive my cars and the Syclone has turned into a garage queen. I know several other Syclone owners and they either do the same and preserve them, or they modify the hell out of them and race them. I did take mine to the track a couple of times just for giggles and it it scary fast. I can't imagine what the ones that are pumped up can do. But, they are having more fun with theirs than I am with mine.

Those are some really nice rides, although, I'm not a fan of imports. Nice pics!

You may notice that I drove only Domestic cars for many years. Then I had a string of really bad cars that forced me to look at Imports. My Eldo, Bravada and 300M were all truly awful experiences spending more time in the shop than I could tolerate. My MDX was absolutely bulletproof. But, the biggest surprise has been this Kia. In 3 years it has not needed anything other than routine service. And, it has a 10 year warranty. So far it is gunning to be my most dependable car ever.

But, these days I have a hard time justifying buying a Domestic that is manufactured in Canada, Mexico, Australia or China when my Kia was manufactured in South Carolina.
